Yes, You Can Make Juicy, Flavorful Pork Chops In The Oven!
A common complaint about cooking pork chops is that they become too dry when cooked in the oven. But we’re here to show you that you can make flavorful, juicy pork chops, and it’s not hard to do!

Want to know our secret? It’s all in the sauce! These sheet pan pork chops get coated in a savory spice rub before they are baked to perfection at the right temperature and for the right amount of time.

Follow our simple technique, which calls for just two dishes, and you’ll have the best oven-baked pork chops you’ve ever tasted.
Ingredients For Sheet Pan Pork Chops With Honey Mustard Sauce
You don’t need store-bought breading or fancy ingredients to make these honey mustard pork chops. Round up the simple items below to make these sheet pan pork chops tonight.
For the Pork Chops:
- Boneless pork chops – look for chops that are about 4 ounces each and ¾- to 1-inch thick. May substitute bone-in pork chops, if preferred
- Brown sugar
- Dried herbs and spices – smoked paprika, dried thyme, garlic powder, onion powder, ground sage
- Olive oil – you’ll use 2 teaspoons to toss the potatoes and 1 teaspoon to form the spice rub. You can also use avocado oil
- Small new potatoes – these are young potatoes that are harvested while they’re still fairly small. As a result, they retain their shape well and have a sweeter, slightly more buttery taste. Red potatoes or large, cubed Russet potatoes can be used instead
- Fresh green beans – grab 12 ounces of fresh green beans from your local farmer’s market or grocery store, and trim the ends. You could also sub in broccoli florets or asparagus
- Salt and black pepper
- Optional garnish – chopped fresh parsley
For the Honey Mustard Sauce:
- Dijon mustard – Primal Kitchen Dijon Mustard is our favorite. It’s made without added sugar, and the ingredient list is short
- Mayo – once again, we’re huge fans of the Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil Mayo. It has the mayo flavor you love and none of the ingredients you don’t. To make these honey mustard pork chops egg-free, use a vegan mayo
- Honey – or sub maple syrup
- Coconut aminos – read more about this savory condiment here, as well as substituions
- Garlic powder
- Salt and black pepper

Tip! For Baking the Perfect Sheet Pan Pork Chops
These honey mustard pork chops are pretty darn fail-proof, but we’ve got a few extra tips to make sure they turn out perfect every single time.
- Let the pork come to room temperature. This allows the pork chops to cook evenly, preventing the outside from getting done too quickly before the center is cooked through.
- Check the internal temperature. Use an instant-read thermometer to ensure your pork chops reach an internal temperature of 145º F so you know they’re done.
- Rest the meat. Allow your chops to sit on the baking sheet for a few minutes before you plate the dinners. This helps redistribute the juices, ensuring the pork chops are succulent and tender all the way through.

When to Serve These Sheet Pan Honey Mustard Pork Chops
These sheet pan pork chops are one of our go-to recipes any time of the year. More than once, this recipe has been a lifesaver during our busy weeks, and the simple ingredients can always be found at our local grocery stores. However, if you really want to get the most bang for your buck in terms of nutrients, it’s best to make it from May to October when green beans are naturally grown and harvested. Or, mix and match your favorite veggies using what’s in season all year long.
- 1 lb. boneless pork chops, 3/4 -1 inch thick (or 1 ¼ lbs. bone-in chops)
- 2 teaspoons brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
- ½ teaspoon dried thyme
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon onion powder
- ¼ teaspoon fine salt + pepper
- ¼ teaspoon dried ground sage
- 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil, divided
- 1 lb. small new potatoes, halved lengthwise (quartered, if large)
- 12 ounces fresh green beans, ends trimmed
- Fine salt and black pepper to taste
- Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)
For the Honey-Mustard Sauce:
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 2 tablespoons mayo
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 teaspoon coconut aminos
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
- Fine salt and black pepper to taste
- Preheat the oven to 400℉. Spray sheet pan with cooking spray and set aside.
- Toss the potatoes with 2 teaspoons of oil + 1 teaspoon of the rub. Arrange the potatoes cut-side down on the baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until potatoes just start to brown and soften a bit.
- While the potatoes are baking, place the pork chops on a plate and pat dry with paper towels. Rub the remaining spice rub mixture onto the chops.
