JUICY BAKED PORK CHOPS RECIPE

These baked pork chops are the best oven baked pork chops ever! They are so easy to make, super juicy, and flavorful. Rub them with a few pantry staple spices and pop them into the oven for about 18 minutes and dinner will be ready!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoons EACH: onion powder and garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon EACH: salt, pepper, and oregano
  • 2 tablespoons olive oildivided
  • 4 boneless pork chops

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Turn your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Measure the thickness of your pork chops so you know how long to bake them.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and oregano.
    1 tablespoon paprika,2 teaspoons EACH: onion powder and garlic powder,1 teaspoon EACH: salt, pepper, and oregano
  • Drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil over both sides of the pork chops. Sprinkle the spice mix evenly over both sides of the pork chops and place them in a baking dish. (see notes) Drizzle them with the remaining tablespoon of olive oil.
    2 tablespoons olive oil,4 boneless pork chops
  • Bake the pork chops uncovered for 7 minutes per ½ inch of thickness (18 minutes for pork chops that are 1 ½ inches thick) or until they reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit. Once you remove them from the oven, let them rest in the pan for 5 minutes before serving.

NOTES

Try to choose a baking dish that is just the right size for the pork chops. You don’t want there to be too much room between the chops or the juices will evaporate in the oven.

Bake your pork chops for 7 minutes per ½ inch of thickness. Add an extra minute for each ½ inch if you’re using bone-in pork chops.

NOTE: this recipe has been tested at sea level. As elevation affects cooking time, you may need to cook your pork chops a little longer if you live at a higher elevation.
