PORK CHOP SEASONING
This 4-ingredient pork chop seasoning not only tastes amazing, it’s incredibly easy to make and you have ALL the ingredients in your pantry already. It doesn’t get much easier than this!
- Garlic Powder: a secret ingredient that adds so much flavor to this dish.
- Paprika: it turns into a nice crust when it’s cooked. You can use smoked paprika if you like the smoky flavor.
- Black Pepper: adds an additional layer of flavor especially the coarse ground black pepper.
- Salt: Pork chops need extra salt to bring out the natural flavor. Salt also makes pork chops sweat while they bake, producing the juicy and tender meat.
The result of this basic rub is a very simple but tasty pork chop recipe that everyone loves. I use this for grilling and cook them in the skillet as well!
HOW LONG TO COOK BONELESS PORK CHOPS IN OVEN
1-inch thick boneless pork chops will take about 15 minutes to bake at 400 degrees F (205C). Cooking them fast at a high temperature is the secret to ultra tender and juicy meat inside. No dried out pork chops anymore!
- Half-inch boneless pork chops take about 8 minutes to bake.
- Add 7 more minutes for each additional thickness of your pork chops.
- Searing the pork chops beforehand will reduce the baking time to 12-13 minutes.
- You will need to add 5-7 minutes of baking time if you make bone-in pork chops.
- If you are making loin chops or rib chops, add 7-10 minutes of baking time depending on the size and thickness of your pork chops.
Pork meat needs to be cooked until an internal temperature of 145F. Insert an instant-read thermometer into the thickest part of the pork chop. It is fine for pork chops to be a little pink in the center. Let your pork chops rest for about 5 minutes before serving.
The most important tool you will need is an instant-read thermometer so that you won’t overcook or undercook your pork chops!
WHAT TO SERVE WITH OVEN BAKED PORK CHOPS
You can serve these Baked Pork Chops with potatoes, pasta, mashed potatoes and greens. I like adding potatoes and greens to the sheet pan for a complete meal. Make sure you cut your potatoes into small pieces so that they can be cooked at the same time.

1. Thick-cut pork chops are less likely to dry out than thinner chops. I recommend buying pork chops that are at least 1-inch thick so that you will get the moist and tender meat.
2. Salt brings out the natural flavor of pork chops, but if you prefer less salt, you can add 1 tsp to the seasoning, and add more to taste during serving.
3. If you bake your pork chops with potatoes, be sure to cut them into small pieces (about 1 inch), otherwise, they won’t cook in time.
4. If the center of your pork chop is pink after it’s baked, it’s ok as long as the internal temperature reaches 145°F.
