Oven Baked Pork Chops:

You are going to be amazed at how simple this recipe is and how flavorful each bite tastes. You only need a few basic seasonings that you probably already have and you can make this for dinner. The flavor combination really jazzes up plain pork chops to make the best dinner.

We love cooking pork chops. From Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops to Air Fryer Boneless Pork Chops, they really make an easy dinner idea. They are easy to cook rather you are grilling them, baking or putting them in your crockpot. These quick and easy pork chops recipes come out so juicy and tender and everyone loves them.

Easy Dinner idea:

We have pork chops at least once a week. My family really likes that we add this recipe to our menu each week. We tend to make a lot of chicken recipes so they are always pleased with the change.

With these simple ingredients, I can make this recipe any night of the week. It turns out so flavorful and mouth watering and within 30 minutes will leave your family feeling full and happy.

Not only can you bake or grill these porks chops, but you can use your iron skillet. They turn out so good and juicy. This is the way my grandmother always made pork chops.

Juicy Pork Chop Tips:

  • Make sure to bake your pork chops at high temperature. This helps it to caramelize the texture of the pork chops and locks in the juices.
  • Try not to overcook your pork chops. Using a meat thermometer helps reach the perfect temperature of 145 degrees. Plus make sure you check them to ensure that you are not overcooking them.
  • The main key to achieve a juicy pork chop is letting it rest for around 10 minutes before slicing. I also place a piece of foil lightly on the pork chops.
  • I like to buy at least 1-inch thick pork chops to ensure that they do not dry out. We have bought thin ones and they dried out very quickly.
  • My family loves boneless pork chops but you can also use bone-in pork chops.
ingredients for recipe: seasoning, oil. pork chops


  • Pork Chops – you can also try using pork tenderloin. Either option is delicious.
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil 
  • Salt and Pepper 
  • Paprika 
  • Onion Powder 
  • Garlic Powder 

How to make oven baked pork chops

  • First, go ahead and preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  • Second, get your baking sheet ready. I used a 9×9 baking dish and sprayed it with cooking spray.
  • Next, put the pork chops in the baking dish.
  • You will need a small bowl to mix together the seasoning. Make sure everything is well combined.
  • Then pat pork chops dry with a paper towel.
  • Then drizzle the olive oil all over the pork chops. I like to use a basting brush to make sure it is spread around really good.
  • Now sprinkle the seasoning ,including the black pepper, you mixed together on top of the pork chops. Use your basting brush again to spread it all over the meat.

How long does it take for a pork chop to cook?

It does not take long at all to bake. I bake my pork chops at 400 degrees. Normally about 15 to 20 minutes is all it takes. Just make sure the internal temperature is 145 degrees in the pork.

I usually check the pork chops about the 15 minute mark. Pork chops cook quickly if not watched closely.

We like to have a meat thermometer to always check our meat for doneness. With pork chops we always make sure the internal temperature is 145 degrees in the pork.

Cooking Time Varies:

Keep in mind that cooking times may vary depending on how thick your pork is. This may require adjusting your cooking time. For reference, the pork chops I used were about 1″ thick.

Make sure to let it sit for at least 5 minutes and then serve. It is important not to skip this part and allow the pork chops time to rest. It only takes a few minutes and is worth it.

Variations Ideas:

  • I like to prepare homemade seasoning. They are easy to make and I know exactly what is in the seasoning. This would be the perfect seasoning to prepare ahead of time. This seasoning works well on chicken or steak as well.
  • You can use a pork tenderloin instead of boneless pork chops.
  • This meal can also be prepared as a sheet pan meal. We love making sheet pans to make a meal. I load the pan with vegetables and meat.
  • After I prepare my pork chops with the season, I will sprinkle the vegetables with the pork seasoning. It is so easy to make and one pan to clean up.

Should Pork Chops be baked covered or uncovered?

If you do not cover the pork chops, the meat will have a crispier outside coating. We prefer it this way!

However, covering with foil will result in the moisture being trapped and the meat being more juicy and tender. Just do what your family prefers the most.

Why I love Pork Chops:

  • Within about 20 minutes, I can sit down with my family and have a healthy delicious meal that everyone will love.
  • Easy spices that I always have in my pantry and they turn out so good on these boneless pork chops.
  • Pork Chops are budget friendly. Pork Chops are really easy to make and turn out so juicy and flavorful if you cook them just right.
  • The sauce that the pork chops make is so good. I love to serve this as a side so we can either dip or pour over our veggies. This is a must that my family always look forward to.
  • Pork Chops are perfect for any diet that you are on. Porks Chops are a lean meat that is low in calorie but high in protein.
  • Pork Chops are perfect on the grill. Instead of making steak or chicken, I love to mix things up and grill some pork chops.

I use a 9×9 baking dish to make this casserole in. You can see the one I used and then tons more here to choose from. It’s the perfect size to bake about 4 to 6 pork chops. Plus, I just love pretty casserole dishes.

    Made this recipe tonight. It was so moist my husband moaned while eating it. He said no more grilling porkchops. I recommend trying this if you have had trouble keeping your porkchops moist. I used boneless 1 inch thick. Follow the rub recipe and added 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder. Thank you for this recipe!

    I tried this seasoning for the first time today on pork chops. My husband said they remind him of our favorite chops we eat every year at a county fair. He gives this recipe 5 stars and told me to remember this recipe because he wants all the chops I make to have this seasoning on it. I agree.

  14. Janna says:

    I like to serve asparagus with pork chops. Apple sauce is good too!

  20. Carrie Barnard says:

    Thank you for commenting and rating the recipe! I love the idea of carrots as a side.

  21. Margaret Fiske says:

    My favorite pork chop side is fresh mushrooms & jalapenos sauteed in salted butter. It’s simple, quick, and tames the flame in the peppers. If I have some fresh squash or green beans handy, I’ll toss them in the pan too.

  22. Lynne K says:

    Carrie – When I grow up, I want to be you. As always – you include all the amazing flavor needed. I wouldn’t add a thing. To keep the sides just as easy, I’d do a salad and rice, as you suggested. I like your recipes for slow cooker chops, also.

  23. Karen Wyche says:

    We buy pork tenderloins and cut them ourselves. We like our chops thicker. It’s cheaper, and better! I’ll try this recipe! We like the sides to be mashed potatoes and yellow squash with onions, or broccoli with cheese sauce.

  24. Bette says:

    I basicaslly do same way. I serve with mashed potatoes and sauerkraut.

  25. Rachael says:

    My favorite way to have pork chops is breaded and oven “fried.” Serve with garlic smashed red potatoes, steamed broccoli & a salad.
    This recipe looks good! Put it on the list to try

  26. Pam says:

    My favorite pork chops recipe is Spicy Pork Chops it is baked in a sauce similar to barbecue sauce, and like to serve them with homemade Mac n cheese!!

  27. Melissa says:

    Half of our family loves apples and stuffing with pork chops. The other half are not fans. So I will definitely have to try this out! Thanks!

  28. Cynthia says:

    5 stars
    This recipe is very easy and good. Love green beans and apple sauce with pork chops.

  29. Linda says:

    My favorite go to’ with pork chops are baked or escalloped potatoes for a starch and a bright colored, steamed vegetable. Color makes a meal much nicer!

  30. Heidi Rushing says:

    5 stars
    The most delicious pork chops ever! They cook up so juicy and tender. I also use this recipe on pork loin, whole or cut into 1″ chops. I think this would probably be great seasoning on a pork butt or shoulder, cooked in a smoker. Yum! Now my mouth is watering! Try this recipe just once and you’ll be hooked.
    We love having some kind of potato with our chops. It’s usually mashed, but also baked goes perfectly as well. Maybe a side salad and add some dinner rolls, perfect weeknight dinner

  31. Kim says:

    5 stars
    This recipe looks delicious. My picky husband might like it, anything I can do to get him out of his steak and potato mindset is a win for me. Can’t wait to try it

  32. Jennifer Simeone says:

    I think baking the pork chops are the best way to make them and I usually make it with mashed potatoes and a salad.

  33. Almira Malley says:

    5 stars
    This recipe is amazing – Eating on a Dime never disappoints! I love serving these with roasted Brussel sprouts!

  34. TamGlo says:

    These chops scream for scalloped potatoes and broccoli slaw.

  35. Antonia says:

    Will definitely try. It looks simple, fast and tasty!

  36. Irene says:

    Have been avoiding the oven for the summer, but will try when the cool weather returns.

    I love to have celery/apple/mayo/lemonjuice salad as one of my sides.

  37. Debbie says:

    I love to grill pork chops during the summer, but this recipe is one to can be made year round. I like the fact that the ingredients are common items I have in my cupboard and that it comes together quickly. I would serve mashed potatoes and fresh vegetables from the garden during the summer, canned or frozen vegetable in the winter that was grown in our garden.

  38. Terry says:

    Looks like a great easy recipe! Our favorite side for pork chops is roasted cauliflower – just toss florets with a little olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic until edges are turning brown.

    Put the cauliflower in the oven at the same time as the pork chops – by the time your chops are done resting, the cauliflower should be about perfect!

  39. Ashley Landers says:

    Wish I saw this sooner, I just cooked some pork chops with collard greens, black-eyed peas, white rice, Mac and cheese, and cornbread. I will definitely try this recipe next, thank you!!! I love trying your recipes!

  40. Amber Powers says:

    Fried pork chops are my favorite!

  41. Barbara says:

    5 stars
    I absolutely love how the pork chops came out because I followed your recipe to the letter. I didn’t use asparagus as a side. Instead I steamed baby carrots. Thank you for the wonderful recipe

  42. Margaret Inmon says:

    Can’t wait to try this recipe. Like pork chops fixed any way I can get them. My favorite sides are creamed potatoes, broccoli or roasted green beans. Asparagus roasted with sesame seeds and parmesan or mozzeralla.

  43. Queenie says:

    Surprisingly, this is basically the way I prepare pork chops anymore. I came up with it as an alternative to the way
    my mother cooked the chops. In her day, everyone was very cautious about cooking pork thoroughly. She would place
    the chops in a frying pan, add about an inch of water and boiled it down , browning in at the end. She said that way, she was
    assured the pork was well done and safe to eat. That doesn’t appear to be the case nowadays, so I developed my recipe
    that is much better tasting and more tender than her version. Good example of the necessity of change as times change.

    I add a few more seasonings along with what you do, but it’s just about the same. Also, throw in a bunch of sliced onions
    for flavor , cover and bake approx. 15-20 min. uncovering to brown and finish off.

    With pork, I ALWAYS have to have applesauce. It’s a must in my house. It goes well with pork. I learned that from my mom
    as well. She would coat the top of a pork roast with applesauce before roasting….yum, yum….applesauce & pork. Can’t get
    better than that!!

  44. Sandy says:

    Our favorite sides to have with pork chops is either deep fried pierogi and steamed fresh broccoli or Mac n cheese and a can of peas

  45. Marilyn Watson says:

    I like to coat the porkchops using flour egg and bread clubs. I season the meat with pretty much the same seasons. I like them fried in oil or sometimes the air fryer. My sides vary depending on my mood. Sometimes I have gravy and mashed potatoes and a veggie other times I make stuffing and gravy and cranberry sauce and a veggie.

  46. Jennifer Orozco says:

    5 stars
    I made this I love it I did fried potatoes with the pork chops and they were just gone in a couple minutes thank you

  47. Lori George says:

    This look totally yummy! I usually serve broccoli (or sometimes brussels sprouts) and sweet potatoes with my pork chops. I prefer bone in pork chops but they have to be thick cut use boneless chops if I’m in a hurry since they cook a lot quicker.

  48. Lisa says:

    I prefer stuffed chops. Made with cornbread dressing. But, this recipe for baked is healthier by far.

  49. Rebecca L Chrzanowski says:

    We love mashed potatoes with pork chops and my husband loves pasta salad. This recipe sounds really good. Will definitely have to try it.

  50. Deborah Franklin says:

    We love pork chops. My husband wants his meat breaded and fried. But I prefer mine this way. Fir dudes I will fix steam broccoli and either roasted potatoes or baked potatoe

  51. Carrie Barnard says:

    I love asparagus too

  52. Lori Crouch says:

    Thank you for this easy and sure to be delicious recipe! I would pair the Chops with a side of broccoli and another side of baked potato. Plain rice would be good, too.

  53. Michelle Gunderman says:

    I love pork chops on the grill!

  54. Sheila says:

    As a child, my mom served all kinds of different side dishes with the pork chops but was always constant to serve applesauce. It wasn’t until I got older that I realize it wasn’t a mandatory side dish. Lol.

  55. Carmen Harris says:

    5 stars
    My favorite way to cook pork chops is to marinate in Italian salad dressing and bake in oven.

  56. Victoria Poston says:

    These pork chops sound delicious; love recipes that dont include frying. I like to marinade my pork chops and cook on the grill. I had a great marinade recipe years ago but have lost it. So I am always trying new recipes for pork marinades. I love a baked potato and roasted veggies with my pork chops.

  57. Carole says:

    5 stars

    Love the simplicity of this recipe! I added a extra garlic powder, just a family request, after mixing spices, (the guys in our house have to taste almost every new thing I try.) We had ours on the grill, so we removed them at 140°s then left them rest.. Used sirloin chops about 1 inch thick, with bone . For sides
    we had the traditional BBQ sides; corn on the cob, baked beans, potato and macaroni salads.summer veggie tray.

    When I make pork chops our favorite sides are mashed potatoes and corn. I like to make mine with a bread dipping seasoning that has garlic, onion and Parmesan seasoning or fried pork chop is always a crowd pleaser to!

    I like to cook pork chops in the slow cooker with carrots. I have a couple different recipes that make a gravy from the cooking sauce to serve over potatoes. I usually also serve canned peaches on the side.

  68. JINA J SHAWBACK says:

    we love to mix half apple butter, half bbq sauce, plus a dash of liquid smoke and pour it on chops and bake them. Moist and delicious!

  69. Mary Jo Fortes says:

    I am excited to make this recipe–seems easy and sounds delicious! Luckily I have some boneless pork chops in the fridge! Now I plan to make them for tonight’s dinner. I prefer them on the grill or in a cast iron skillet–so nice that I can use this recipe for both, but tonight I may bake them as I want to follow the recipe to a T the first time to try them as is. Plus, this made me miss good ole’ baked pork chops. Thank you for sharing!

  70. Rebecca Castronova says:

    Served with fried apples.

  71. S says:

    400 is too high heat to cook in olive oil. I would use Avocado oil or cook them in lard or tallow. Never use canola, corn, soy, safflower, sunflower, cottonseed.

  72. Rene says:

    I love simple recipes like this. We enjoy asparagus with our pork chops.

  73. Amy Reyes says:

    Oh, this looks amazing and super simple. I would add a hot loaded baked potatoe salad or a hash brown casserole and veggie with this for the perfect comforting, quick and satisfying meal. Thanks so much for all that you do, keep brining these realistic meals our way.

  74. Belinda Probert says:

    I love bbq pork chops on a grill with honey and wochestor sauce …and sometimes dip in egg and then seasoned flour and fry them up …I like Brussels sprouts with my pork chops!!!
