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.

For more great tips and ideas, watch the video below where I walk you through every step of this recipe in The Stay At Home Chef Cooking Show. Sometimes it helps to have a visual and we’ve always got you covered.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
  • Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  • Rub each pork chop with olive oil.
  • In a small bowl mix together salt, pepper, paprika, and onion powder. Season all sides of the pork chop with this mix. Place seasoned pork chops onto the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until pork chops reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees F (which will depend on how thick the pork chops are).Serve hot.
*Some people are concerned about the amount of salt. If you are sensitive to salt, or on a low sodium diet, reduce the amount of salt and add more to taste when serving.

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.


I am making these right now. Hope mine come out good to satisfy 3 grandchildren under 6 years old. Serving them with homemade apple sauce.

How did it come out? I would like to try for my grandkids also.


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!!!

My wife usually grilled them, but we try nextime your oven recipe. Thanks


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.

Hubby said the best meal he’s ever had.

I used your advice on both the bone-in and boneless pork chops and they really turned out great. I bought the whole loin and had the chops caught to 2 in. thickness and WOW. Couple of minutes on each side on the cast iron skillet and then to the oven. Thanks.
