Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Lay out a piece of aluminum foil large enough to hold the ingredients. Place the pork chops, on the foil, then place the sweet potato, onion and apple over the chops. Fold up and seal each package.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 45 minutes, or until the potato is soft when pricked with a fork. (Note: Do not open packages while baking as this will allow the steam to escape and will dry out the pork chops. Also, be careful when opening as the steam can burn.)

If you could have more than 5 stars-that would be my rating. This was delicious. I doubled the foil, cook a little longer than 45 minutes and spinkled light brown sugar on top of the potatoes and covered and placed tham back in the toaster oven (which had been turned off) just to let the sugar melt and seep through. For a dish with no seasonngs at all, this was quick, superb, tender and all good things you could say about food.

A pretty decent meal. The recipe didn't specify how to prepare the sweet potatos, so I peeled them and cut them in half length-wise and only used half in each packet. They still did not get done in 45 mintues so I had to microwave the potatoes afterward.

I made a couple of changes to this basic recipe. I used frozen peas and pearl onions insead of the onion slices. I peeled and then sliced the sweet potato into 1/2-inch rounds, and I added just a little butter in the packet. I seasoned with salt and pepper when served. This is a good basic recipe that can be plain or fancy.

This sounds like a "gramma" recipe, but don't you guys know about cooking your food directly on tin foil? It's really not good for you. I've been told the aluminum goes into the food.

season chops with spice blend of choice (I used adobo)and sear first in a hot skillet- i omitted the potatoes (doubled the onions) and drizzled the assembled packets with a mixture of honey mustard/soy/cayenne and a pinch of curry before sealing them up. DELISH!

This recipe was fast to prepare and it was delicious. I used thick cut pork loin, so my meat wouldn't overcook. I used a sliced bermuda onion, and sprinkled cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice on top of the apple slices. I used half of a sweet potato, dotted with butter, and baked for 45 minutes. The sweet potatoe just barely cooked right (not to self: don't use too large of a potato next time) I then took a pat of softened butter, added some brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice and mixed together. This was added to the sweet potato for those with a sweeter tooth. Delicious and I would definitely make again... don't use thin pork chops, as they will turn out dry. Easy cleanup and inexpensive to make.

delicious and super easy! I added more slices of sweet potato, onion and apple because i found two slices were not enough.

This was a bit hit with my family. I made extra and they froze really well.
