We’re in the middle of a whole house update right now, so recipe is right up my alley. With the stay-at -home order in place we started noticing things around the house that looked worn down. We are doing some of the work ourselves and hired a contractor to install new tile in the bathrooms and wood floors in the bedrooms. So after long hours of painting, moving furniture and arguing with our contractor, the last thing I wanted was another “project” in the kitchen.
Sheet pan suppers are a great solution to getting dinner on the table fast because they’re super versatile and everything goes on one pan for easy clean-up. Just grab the paper plates and chow down.
How To Make Sheet Pan Pork Chop Parmesan
This amazing recipe couldn’t be any EASIER to make. You just dip the chops in egg, coat with panko crumbs and lay flat on a sheet pan. Throw on the sweet potatoes (pre-cut and frozen) and stick it the pan the oven for 20 – 30 minutes until meat reaches 145 degrees F. (cooking time depends on how thick your chops are). Just turn the potatoes over after 15 minutes and keep on cooking.
When the chops are done, spread with marinara sauce and sprinkle on the mozzarella. A little more time in the oven and you are DONE! About 40 minutes, start to finish. Promise!
What’s needed to make this recipe
- Pork Chops – we used boneless chops to make eating them less messy, but bone-in chops will work in a pinch.
- Egg – one whole egg should be enough to coat 4 chops.
- Panko Bread Crumbs – panko makes the BEST coating for oven roasted meat, but regular breadcrumbs will work too.
- Parmesan Cheese – grated parmesan to add zip to the crumb coating.
- Italian Seasoning – lots of flavor added and is fantastic with the marinara sauce. Oregano is a great substitute.
- Marinara Sauce – we make our own homemade marinara sauce but from the jar is fine.
- Mozzarella Cheese – to save time buy pre-shredded cheese, or shred your own from a block.

Sheet Pan Parmesan Pork
Click highlighted ingredients to buy them!
- 2 pounds pork loin chops, boneless
- 1 cup panko bread crumbs
- 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
- 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup marinara sauce
- 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 12 ounce frozen sweet potato chunks, optional
- Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease large rimmed baking sheet or line pan with parchment paper.
- Whisk the egg, salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Into another shallow dish add the panko, Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese. Stir to combine.
- Completely dry the pork chops. (paper towel is good) Working one at a time, dip the pork chops into the egg mixture, turning to coat every side. Then roll the chop in the bread crumb mixture until all sides are coated. Lay the pork chops on the baking sheet, leaving at least and inch between the chops. Repeat with remaining chops.
- Arrange frozen potato chunks around pork chops, leaving space in between the chunks. You can season them with salt and pepper if you like.
- Place pan on the center rack of the oven and bake for 20 – 30 minutes, until the panko crumbs begin to brown and the pork reaches an internal temperature of at least 145°F on an instant read thermometer. Turn the potatoes over after 15 minutes of baking time and continue to cook.
- When chops are done, remove from oven and evenly spread marinara sauce on top of each pork chop, then sprinkle on mozzarella cheese, dividing equally. Return the pan to the oven for 5 minutes to allow the cheese to melt and marinara sauce to warm. ** If you like your cheese to be bubbly and crisp, remove the potatoes from the pan then place the pan under the broiler for 1 – 2 minutes. Serve hot.
