One dish meal ---Pork Chops with Squash and Potatoes

Total time   1 hour   50 minutes
Serves 4 (serving size: 1 pork chop and about 1 cup vegetables)
One sheet and dinner is done, thanks to  Pork Chops, squash and potatoes.

4    (1-inch-thick) frenched pork loin chops
1/2    cup fresh lemon juice
4    tablespoons olive oil
3    garlic cloves, minced
3    tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
1    teaspoon black pepper
3    teaspoons kosher salt, divided
2    medium yellow squash, sliced 1/2 inch thick
1    large zucchini, sliced 1/2 inch thick
1/2    pound small red potatoes, quartered

1 .  Place pork chops in a 13- x 9-inch baking dish. Whisk lemon juice, oil, garlic, oregano, pepper, and 2 1/2 teaspoons salt; reserve 2 tablespoons marinade. Pour remaining marinade over pork, turning to coat. Chill 1 to 8 hours.
2 .  Preheat oven to 425°F. Combine squash, zucchini, potatoes, and reserved marinade. Spread squash mixture in an even layer on a heavy-duty aluminum foil-lined rimmed sheet pan.
3 .  Remove pork from marinade, discarding marinade. Pat dry with paper towels, and place on top of squash mixture.

4 .   Bake 25 minutes. Increase temperature to broil, and broil until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 140°F, about 5 minutes. Transfer pork to a serving platter, and cover with foil. Return pan to oven, and broil squash mixture until slightly charred, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer squash mixture to a serving bowl; toss with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, and serve with pork.
