These Easy Baked Pork Chops only require a few spices to really make them stand out. They are juicy, tender, and full of flavor.

People absolutely rave about my recipe for the Perfect Thick Cut Pork Chop. It’s about time I share an Easy Baked Pork Chop Recipe for those of you who prefer the boneless variety. A good pork chop doesn’t require much in the way of seasoning so I’ve kept things super simple in this recipe. It doesn’t get much easier than this!

Baked Pork Chops are incredible simple to make. You will have better results if you purchase pork chops that have been cut about 1-inch thick. This will help prevent your meat from drying out. There’s nothing worse than a dry pork chop! Any thinner than 1 inch and you will most likely end up with dry, flavorless meat.

How long to bake pork chops?

The length of time that you need to bake a pork chop depends on the thickness of your meat as well as whether or not is bone-in. Searing your meat before baking will also impact the cooking time. A good rule of thumb is 7 minutes of baking  in a 400 degree oven per half inch of meat. If you sear your meat beforehand, reduce that amount of 2 minutes. If your pork chop has a large bone, you may need to add a few minutes to the cooking time. Pork needs to be cooked to an internal temperature of 145 degrees F. Let your meat rest for at least 5 minutes before cutting into it.

This pork recipe can easily be added to in order to create a one pan dinner. Toss some green beans in some olive oil and salt and pepper and surround the pork on a baking sheet for some roasted green beans and pork. Broccoli would work well too.

These truly are juicy, flavorful & so easy to make. We have never been big fans of pork chops because they usually turn out like shoe leather, but my husband and I thought these were delicious. I will definitely be making this recipe again. I’m so happy to finally be able to cook a tasty pork chop. I love when you include a video with your recipes.

Pork chops & apple sauce! When I made the reference to my 19 year old son & his 18 year old girlfriend, they didn’t get it from the Brady Bunch! Anyway! I got a laugh out of it.

I love this recipe. I’ve made it numerous times. My sons girlfriend is VERY picky but she loves this!! Thanks so much for posting!!!

Excellent! Used thick 1″ chops & thermometer to 145. Done in approx 20 mins. Juicy. Tasty exterior. Used salt substitute for father in law’s diet. We loved this recipe and will do repeatedly!

This is so simple to make and it’s absolutely delicious!! So very juicy and full of flavor. We had this tonight for dinner. I cooked some small new potatoes with french style green beans in the crockpot (along with country ham pieces for added flavor) & made mashed potatoes and texas toast. No leftovers from this meal.

Perfect every time! The flavors are subtle and delicious (although I cut back on the smoked paprika) and the chops are so moist I can’t believe it!!

This is the simple recipe I was looking for! So easy and delicious! My cooking time varied a bit but only by a few minutes, put some asparagus on pan with the pork and all turned out great! I used Morton All Season Salt and fresh ground pepper to simplify for an after work meal. Kudos to you! Always struggle with pork chops, these were great!

Thank you for the easy recipe for boneless chops. I subbed the onion powder for garlic powder as per my diet and they taste awesome! I also used half the salt.

Made pork chops last night. I cooked chops with a bone and they were thinner. They were delicious. Will make again.

The pork chops were very juicy. The second time I made them I cut back on all of the ingredients for the rub because of too much salt and pepper. My husband thought that they were too hot. We lo ve this recipe. Very tasty and juicy.
