Brown Sugar Garlic Oven Baked Pork Chops are the answer to about 500 emails from you guys asking for pork chop versions of these two recipes: Brown Sugar Garlic Pork with Carrots & Potatoes and Slow Cooker Bacon Garlic Pork Loin.

You guys have LOVED those recipe and have always asked “can I do this recipe with pork chops?” Unfortunately, no, I always said “nope, sorry.”

Today I have an even EASIER version if that is even possible. Sheet Pan Brown Sugar Garlic Pork Chops WITH a side of potatoes like my original recipe. I was going to add carrots too, but with the heat I was a bit worried they’d scorch.

Recipe alert (and actual exact one coming soon!): You had all been asking about baked pork chops with cream of mushroom soup. THIS is the final piece of that recipe served with Cream of Mushroom Soup (Condensed).

How to make Baked Pork Chops with Cream of Mushroom Soup:

  • In a baking pan, add the chops and roast for half the time.
  • Cover with my Cream of Mushroom Soup Recipe, finish baking in the oven and serve.
  • Even better, you can leave the mushrooms a larger size for a better, more luxurious feeling meal.

But really, I’ve been on this brown sugar garlic kick for a while now. The pork was originally posted in my second month of blogging and just yesterday I had a Bacon Brown Sugar Garlic Chicken that we’ve still been dreaming about.

Psst, I also have a Slow Cooker Brown Sugar Garlic Chicken you NEED to try, it is fall apart tender, sticky, garlicky and amazing.

How long do you cook pork chops in the oven?

I bake my oven baked pork chops at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until they reach an internal temperature of 145-150 degrees. I usually turn off the oven and leave the oven door open about 30% to let them rest for 3-5 minutes before serving.

How long do you cook bone in pork chops in the oven?

Cooking with meat that is bone-in takes roughly 10-15% more cooking time. This recipe calls for bone-in chops so I’d say if they are boneless you can possibly cook them for 30-32 minutes.

How do you cook pork loin chops in the oven?

Pork Loin chops (like in this recipe) are primarily “white meat” of the pig. Meaning less fat than the darker meat you’d find in shoulder chops or country style ribs. This means you need to keep a close eye to make sure it doesn’t dry out. The “dark meat” chops you can normally find less expensively at the store can handle a longer cooking time or braising.

Tools Used in the making of Brown Sugar Garlic Oven Baked Pork Chops:
Sheet Pan: A classic, inexpensive sheet pan that is high quality and can hold up to high temperatures in the oven. If you’d prefer you could also use…
Cast Iron Skillet: This is my most used pan in my kitchen, heavy, keeps heat well and gives the BEST sear ever.

  1. I can’t wait to try this recipe tonight! And, I always gripe about people that post a comment BEFORE actually trying the recipe. But what impresses me about this recipe, and is pretty silly, is the option to click on the cooking times in the recipe and a handy timer pops up on my screen! Maybe I’m easily impressed but I think it’s very cool! Thanks!
    Giving it 5 stars just for that little helpful tid-bit!

  2. Making this now as we speak . I hope it tastes as good as it looks . Not doing the potatoes this same way. Have left over mashed potatoes that I’m heating up and adding butter to once finished.

  3. I was looking for something different & this hit the mark! Next time I plan to plate it with warm chunky applesauce on top! Yummy

  4. Made this recipe for supper tonight. Extremely easy to make and tasted amazing. Even my kids who are picky eaters enjoyed it. Will be saving this recipe to make again in the future. Thank you!

  5. I love the receipe and it came out good, however what is green stuff on chops in the picture? I do not see anything in receipe ingredients?

  6. I have no idea how anyone pulled this off. The sugar and oil just made a slurry that I just packed on the chops and the poatatoes were boring. Also the cook time was way out to lunch since mine took near an hour to finish. If I try my own take on this I will do the potatoes almost the same but toss them with garlic and Italian dressing instead of oil plus seasoning. Italian dressing has all the staples and when heated blends nicely into veg. The recipies way makes bland and boring potatoes. The pork, I’ll oil the meat directly and mix the sugar, garlic, salt and pepper separate and dress the meat appropriately after by rubbing it. That way it doesn’t make a weird packing mess plus this way you control how much goes on each piece.Stalling the chops at 1t mins to drop crushed whole cloves of garlic isnt a bad idea mlm either. Gives it a nice authentic feel. Just my thoughts…

  7. Every thing blended together and tasted great. The garlic wasnt over powering and really added just the right taste to the brown sugar.

    1. Yes but you’ll need to lessed the cook time. Also because it doesn’t have a bone to protect it, it may end up coming out dry. I’d love to know how it turns out if you decide to try it, thanks!

  8. When I started making this I discovered I was out of brown sugar. I used sugar with some malasses mixed in. Stirred together it will get close to the consistency of brown sugar. I also inadvertently put too much pepper in it. Made it nice and spicy. Really a great recipe, apparently you can do things wrong and it still comes out great.

  9. Our chips came out super white colour. Almost like they were boiled! I followed the recipe to the letter! Not sure what I could’ve done differently ?

    1. Oh no! Did you use Yukon Gold Potatoes? Feel free to contact me at contact @ dinnerthendessert .com and we can try and troubleshoot together.

    1. I bake my oven baked pork chops at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until they reach an internal temperature of 145-150 degrees. I usually turn off the oven and leave the oven door open about 30% to let them rest for 3-5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

  10. Tried this recipe and I was very pleased. I only had creamer potatoes and tossed in diced yellow onion with the potatoe mix. The flavors were perfect. Even my side of white cheddar pasta complimented this dish well. My fiancé is requesting this recipe for the third time in a month! Definitely worth a try.

    1. It might not allow the topping to stick to the pork chops while cooking (slide off onto the sheet pan). If you decide to try, I’d love to know how it turns out for you.

  11. I made it tonight. It is very good. The pork chops are vert tasty and flavorful. The potatoes were kind of plain, but still good. I think I will add onions to the potatoes next time

  12. Just made this for my mom and brother (8yr) and they LOVE it! Super delicious with some roasted veggies on the side. Hope to make this for more dinners with family!

  13. Just tried your recipe. The chops were thick so i doubled the recipe. Perfect. Put them in the broiler at the very end, to brown it even more. My daughter thought it has an asian flavor. We loves it! She suggested next time we try it on chicken with rice! Mmmmmm can’t wait! Thank u!

  14. While this recipe tasted fantastic, the access brown sugar managed to melt all over my pan. It was so stuck on I had to scrape it off! Any suggestions on how to avoid this? Maybe cook on foil next time? We ate these last night and my husband already asked me for more!

  15. I’m a 13 year old chef and this recipe caught my eye it was very succesful with my whole family!I will defitinetly make it again

  16. Just made this tonight for the first time. These are easily the best pork chops I ever had. Love how quick and simple it is, and yet it so flavorful!

  17. Absolutely delicious! Pork chops were tender and I’m always looking for recipes that produce tender chops, this moved to the top of my list.

  18. This is the only reason I’ll eat a pork loin. Ha. Ha.  (Not much of a pork eater, but this changes the game plan.)  Seriously, so easy, so much flavor, and so many compliments from dinner guests!  They all thought I’d been preparing this sumptuous meal for a long time. Lined the pan with foil so a bowl and a pan were all there was to clean up. Bonus points! 🙂 Thank you! 

  19. Great recipe!
    My husband and I love the taste!
    My husband had only one complent, not enough potatoes, so I’m making it with more potatoes today. I was wondering whether can all the ingredients for the pork chops be put together then put on the pork chops?

  20. Just made this for dinner! Lowered the sodium for my needs and added onions to the potatoes, was so good so simple. I posted it on my Instagram and #’d your IG on it and the recipe… TY for the amazing inspiration! #lowsodiumfoodieibe

      1. I have to eat Low sodium so finding things that I can cut the salt and still have such amazing flavor is a huge blessing! I am going to be checking out some of your other recipes also.

  21. You list tools used to make these as sheet pan and cast iron skillet. Are you browning the chops first in skillet? Or is this just an error?

    1. Sorry for the confusion. Sometimes I do make this in the skillet so I wanted to show which one I use in case anyone wanted a suggestion. There is no need to sear or brown the chops before placing them in the oven.

  22. Thank You for the recipe. I made these for dinner tonight with cornbread dressing and roasted asparagus. My family loved it! We will include this meal as one of our traditions.

  23. What kind of brown sugar did you use? Also the ingredients for pork chops can I use it for turkey chops that are boneless and do you put the brown sugar on the potatoes as well? 

    1. So sorry about that! I used light brown sugar for this recipe. Actually, I use light brown sugar so much that I only specify as dark brown sugar when using the other. If the recipe calls for brown sugar, it’ll be light brown sugar that was used. Hope this clears up any confusion. Also, boneless turkey chops would be a great substitution but would only need to be cooked for 30-32 minutes. And lastly, no brown sugar on the potatoes, just oil, salt and pepper. Hope all of this helps!

  24. I am anxious to make this recipe because the picture looks so delicious. I’m confused by step 5 however when it says to add the rest of the topping over the pork chops, it seems to me that all of the ingredients have been used by that step. What needs to be added then? Also, does the pan get covered with foil at all or does it get baked uncovered for the entire time? Thank you again for all of your recipes!

    1. Thank you so much! For step 5, I just meant that once you place the pork chops on the sheet pan you’ll want to cover them with any additional topping that might be left over in the bowl. Also, the pork chops get baked uncovered. Hopefully this clears up any confusion. I hope you enjoy it!

    1. Oh my god, these r delicious, easy to make and hardly any clean up time! I mix up the veggies, using cubed sweet potatoes, cut broccoli etc… I used the same big round plastic container to coat everything, doing the meat last. Folks my WHOLE family loved this, even my 5 yr old grandson, AND even took pork chop sandwiches for lunch the next day with leftovers. I’ve made it twice now, and it will definitely be in my rotation. Great job giving us things to destress our lives!
