Pork Chop Baked with Apple and Sweet Potato

Don't have a lot of time to cook? Try this one out. It's a winner!

1 lean boneless pork loin
1 medium sweet potato
1 medium apple

Preheat oven to 350
Slice the sweet potato thinly. Quarter, core, and slice the apple into eight pieces.
On a large piece of foil, layer sweet potato slices, pork chop, and then apple slices. If desired (I desire), sprinkle with cinnamon, salt, and pepper (I only do the cinnamon).
Wrap well and bake for 40 min. (That's what the directions say, but I usually have to bake mine for 1 hour)

Super yummy and moist! I don't know about you, but a lot of Pork Chop recipes I've tried make the meat dry. This has a moist, sweet flavor to it.


  1. Perfect! I put pork chops out to thaw last night and planned to scour the internet for a recipe for tonight's dinner. I'm totally gonna make this!

  2. Is that a Granny Smith? That looks so easy and so good...thank you for the great idea. The other thing I love about this recipe: fewer dishes to wash at the end!

  3. Alicia, do you put the foil wrapped goodies straight on the oven rack or on a cookie sheet?

  4. I just happen to be on the blog right now!

    Granny Smith yes, but I've used other ones too.

    I put it on a cookie sheet. You could try just laying it on the oven, but I hate it when things leak in my oven.

  5. Alicia that looks yummy. I'm going to try this for sure.

    Apis arrived last night along with two nieces and and Aunt Julie. The Julie that is a challenge participant kind of.

    Apis and I will head to the gym this morning and then join Samantha and Audrey for lunch. Someone will have to post about our lunch and dinner. Hopefully we will be able to stay in our calorie range.

    Tonight we are going to have Turkey burgers (no buns) with mango salsa,sweet potato fries and a spinich/strawberry salad.

  6. OK, it was a huge hit! It's so rare that I make a healthy meal that everyone likes, so this is getting added to my list of staples. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  7. Sue- I'm so glad you liked it. It's one of my favorite's but my kids don't care for it to much. I make them gag it down. I'm in the process of making them get out of their comfort zone.

  8. Queen Vee- What a fun day for you guys and since you're all in it together, it must make it that much more easy.
