Ingredients

Pork Chops

  • 4 pork chops 1-inch thick*, boneless (2 ½ pounds)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

Pork Chop Seasoning

  • 1 teaspoon paprika or smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt**
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  • Set oven rack to the middle position. Preheat oven to 400°F (204°C).
  • Lightly grease a rimmed baking sheet with vegetable oil or cooking spray.
  • In a small bowl combine paprika, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. Set aside.
  • Pat dry the pork chops with paper towels. Place on a sheet pan in a single layer.
  • Rub the chops with oil over all sides.
  • Rub the seasoning mixture over all sides of each chop.
  • Cover the pork chops loosely with aluminum foil.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes depending on thickness***. (No need to flip them while baking.)
  • Check the doneness by inserting the thermometer into the thickest part of the pork chop.
    Remove from the oven at an internal temperature of 140°F / 60°C (the temperature will rise to about 145°F / 63°C during resting).
  • Using kitchen tongs, transfer the pork chops to a cutting board or a plate.
  • Rest for 5-10 minutes covered with foil or a plate before slicing.

Notes

  • *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 moist and tender meat.
  • **Salt brings out the natural flavor of pork chops, but if you prefer less salt, you can add 1 teaspoon to the seasoning, and add more to taste during serving.
  • ***Baking time will vary depending on the thickness of the pork chops. For boneless pork chops, it takes about 7-8 minutes for every half-inch of thickness.
  • If the center of your pork chop is a little pink after it’s baked, it’s ok as long as the internal temperature reaches 145°F / 63°C.
  • You can add vegetables such as broccoli, green beans, and potatoes to the baking sheet along with the chops. Cut potatoes into smaller pieces (about 1 inch) to ensure they cook in time.
