Simple Sweet Pork Chops Recipe

Simple enough to whip up for busy weeknights, these tender pork chops are all juiced up with sweet pineapple and just the right touch of jalapeno. They’re perfect for the whole family. —Sherri Melotik, Oak Creek, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 6 boneless pork loin chops (6 ounces each)
  • 1 can (20 ounces) unsweetened pineapple chunks, undrained
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder


  • 1. Place pork chops in a 13x9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Combine remaining ingredients; pour over chops. Cover and bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Bake, uncovered, 10-15 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 160°. Yield: 6 servings.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.

"Way to much juice in the pan, chops were covered and didn't brown at all, not very appetizing to look at. Maybe browning before would help."

"I used chicken breasts instead of pork chops & omitted the jalapeno pepper. It had just the right amount of sweetness & spice. Also, was very easy to make & the chicken was very moist & tender."
