Equipment

  • Oven

Ingredients

  • 4 bone-in pork chops, 1-inch thick
  • 4 lemons, juiced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 pound baby potatoes, quartered
  • 2 large zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch thick slices

Instructions

  • Place pork chops in a large ziploc bag. Set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, oregano, thyme, 2 teaspoons salt, pepper, and basil; whisk until thoroughly combined.
  • Reserve 2 tablespoons of marinade and add the rest of the marinade to the ziploc bag.
  • Seal the bag and rub the marinade all around the pork chops. Set aside for 30 minutes, or in the fridge for up to 8 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 425˚F. In a large mixing bowl, combine cut potatoes and sliced zucchini.
  • Pour the reserved marinade over the vegetables and gently mix it all together.
  • Line a jelly roll pan with foil or parchment paper. Transfer veggies to the pan and arrange in a single layer.
  • Remove pork chops from the marinade and set them over the vegetables; discard remaining marinade. 
  • Bake for 23 to 25 minutes, or until internal temperature of pork chops reaches 140˚F.
  • Remove pan from oven; remove the pork chops, set aside and keep covered.
  • Set the oven to BROIL and pop the veggies back in the oven for 4 more minutes, or until just starting to char. This is optional but it adds a nice caramelization to the veggies.
  • Remove from oven and serve the pork chops with the veggies.
