2 boneless pork chops
1 medium sweet potato, peel and cut into 1/4 slices
1 tsp vegetable oil
2/3 C orange juice

Preheat oven to 350. Sprinkle pork chops with salt, pepper and garlic powder. In a small skillet, brown pork chops on both sides (in oil if you choose). While pork chops brown, microwave sliced sweet potatoes for 2 minutes. Remove pork chops from skillet and place in a sprayed 8 inch baking dish. Combine orange juice, brown sugar, ginger, pepper in skillet. Bring to a boil stirring constantly. Layer sliced sweet potatoes on top of the pork chops. Pour orange sauce over sweet potatoes. Cover and bake for 45 minutes. Pour pan juices into the skillet and bring to a boil. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth and slowly stir into juices. Continue to boil for about a minute. Drizzle over plated pork chops and sweet potatoes.
