Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Wash hands with soap and water.
In a medium skillet, brown both sides of pork chop in vegetable oil.
Peel sweet potato. Cut into 1/2-inch slices.
Place browned pork chops in a baking dish and top with sweet potato slices and orange slices; sprinkle with seasonings. If using canned sweet potatoes, add them half-way through baking pork chops.
Cover and bake for 1 hour or until meat is tender and thoroughly cooked. Internal temperature of pork chops should reach 145 degrees F.
