  • Cook Time: 25 minutes
  • Total Time: 40 minutes

Serving Size

  • Serves 4


  • 4 bone-in pork chops, 1-inch thick
  • 2 large apples, cored and sliced
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Optional: Fresh thyme sprigs for garnish


  1. Preheat the Oven: Set your oven to 375°F (190°C) and allow it to heat while you prepare the ingredients.
  2. Prepare the Ingredients: Wash the apples and slice them into wedges. Peel the onion and cut into thin slices. Pat the pork chops dry with a paper towel.
  3. Season the Pork Chops: In a small bowl, mix 1 tablespoon of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Brush this mixture onto both sides of the pork chops.
  4. Arrange on the Sheet Pan: On a large sheet pan, evenly spread the apple slices and onion. Place the seasoned pork chops among the apples and onions.
  5. Drizzle and Season: Drizzle the remaining olive oil and honey over the pork chops, apples, and onions. Sprinkle fresh thyme leaves on top and add another dash of salt and pepper if desired.
  6. Bake: Place the sheet pan in the preheated oven. Bake for about 25 minutes, or until the pork chops reach an internal temperature of 145°F (63°C) and the apples are tender.
  7. Serve: Remove from the oven and let it rest for a couple of minutes. Serve hot, garnished with fresh thyme sprigs if desired.
