I love a great pork recipe and this one is not only tasty but super easy to make!
I’ve used this same recipe for pork tenderloin, boneless chops, and bone-in.
Bone-in pork chops are what I had on hand this night, so that’s what I’m using here but don’t be afraid to improvise. It turns out great every time!
On days we are at the farm, I want to get dinner on the table quickly, so I always go for a one pan easy meal.
A lot of these ingredients are staples in my pantry so it takes no time at all to whip this together.

Plus it gives it tremendous flavor!
Pork can definitely be dry and bland if you don’t cook it right, but not by doing it this way!
This easy one pan pineapple thyme pork chop recipe is fool proof as the citrus juices penetrate and infuse the meat with so much flavor in a super short amount of time!
