Easy Weeknight Dinner

If you are anything like me, the meal-planning part of the day sometimes comes last minute. I am that mom. As much as I wish and hope that I could be a super meal planner and prepper, I am not. Maybe someday...

Anyway, for those of you like me, here is a quick and easy one-pan dinner for those nights when planning ahead hasn't happened. The great thing is, no one would know because the taste is still fabulous!

I often like to enjoy an adult beverage while cooking, so I have included a cocktail recipe, as well!

Note: This recipe can be cooked in one pan, or two if you do not want the different flavored juices combined.

Keep calm and be your own bartender!

  1. Blend all ingredients until smooth.
  2. Serve in a coconut-rimmed martini glass.

For the pork chops:

  • 4 bone-in pork chops

  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)

  • 4 tablespoons mayo
  • 2 tablespoons siracha

Step 1: Prepare the Potatoes

  2. Line half of the sheet pan with aluminum foil or parchment paper (optional).

Step 2: Prepare the Pork Chops

  1. Place pork chops in a bowl.
  2. Toss chops with garlic, brown sugar, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.
  3. Add pork chops to pan on foil (the foil may help keep some of the juices from blending. If this does not bother you, there is no need for the foil.)
  4. Drizzle any remaining topping on chops that remains in bowl.
