Broiled Parmesan Pork Chops & Broccoli

30 minutes, gluten free, keto friendly, super easy, and full of flavor — yup, this Broiled Parmesan Pork Chops & Broccoli sheet pan dinner recipe has it all!

For our very last recipe of 2019 (how’d that happen, already?!), how about a super simple, keto friendly, gluten free, 30 minute sheet pan dinner? Sounds good to me… OK, it was good, you got me. But alas, this Broiled Parmesan Pork Chops & Broccoli is already but a distant memory. Nothing good lasts long around here, not with two teenage boys in the house.

I love easy one pan meals about as much as the kids loved these pork chops, so a definite win-win situation over here. It’s so quick & easy to broil up thin cut pork chops, that I thought I’d see how the broccoli turned out that way as well — figuring that if it’s good roasted, it would probably be tasty broiled, as well! Yup. 😉

Patting dry before broiling also helps keep the broccoli from getting mushy, which is especially important with the relatively short cooking time here. If you like your broccoli a little more well done, you can just pop it back in the oven for a couple of minutes after removing the finished pork chops from the pan.

Drizzle half of the olive oil mixture over the broccoli, and toss to coat. Arrange broccoli in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet, leaving room for the chops.

Broil on high for another 5-6 minutes, or until chops are cooked through to 145 degrees.

Let sit for a few minutes, then serve.

Note: I used 1 tsp of seasoned salt and thought this recipe was very good yet slightly salty; however, the boys loved it as is and told me not to reduce the salt the next time. Adjust to your own tastes!

Im not that comfortable cooking the meal with a broiler what if you just wanted to bake in oven any ideas on temp and time?

I have a baked pork chop recipe that my family loves. I would think you can use the same instructions for this recipe.

Preheat to 400 degrees. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until pork chops reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees F (which will depend on how thick the pork chops are).

I used a bag of frozen broccoli and 1/8 tsp of seasoning salt. It was yummy. I will make it again!
