During the week, I don’t have hours to spend on meal prep. I’m always looking for fast and easy dinner recipes that my family will actually like.

I make a lot of chicken and pork since they are so versatile. And I prefer baking our meals since I can work on other tasks while the oven does all the work.

How to Make Maple Glazed Baked Pork Chops

Typically, I try to limit the number of steps and dirty dishes in my recipes, but not all dinners can be one-pot wonders. This recipe is one of them.

You’ll need to start the pork chops in a frying pan to prevent the maple glaze from burning by being baked for too long. You’ll be rewarded for your extra effort with a beautiful, slightly crisp sear.

Don’t worry, your frying pan will get double duty since you’ll make the maple sauce in the same pan once you’ve removed the pork chops.

You’ll notice in the detailed recipe at the bottom of the post that Worcestershire sauce and garlic are listed as optional ingredients for the sauce. The glaze is delicious without them, but if you want to cut the sweetness without diluting the delicious maple flavor, the Worcestershire and garlic do the trick.

After you’ve brought the sauce to a bowl, you just pour it over the pork chops in a baking dish and pop it in a 350°F oven for 10-12 minutes.

We love to serve it with carrots since they taste amazing with a little of the maple glaze on them. And mashed potatoes help catch some of that sauce too.
