Ingredient notes

Pork chops – Thicker cuts are best for juicy chops, so I suggest using bone in pork chops that are at least 1 inch thick for this recipe.

Add a quick side – You can easily add in another sheet pan with the pork chops to roast some veggies for a side dish. Just pick veggies like broccoli, cauliflower or brussels sprouts that will cook in about 30 minutes.

The seasoning – You might want to make more of the seasoning after trying it, so go ahead and use it on chicken or steak too :).

Tips from an expert home chef

  • Don’t skip the resting step. Allow the chops to rest for a full 5 minutes to retain the juices in every bite!
  • If you want a little brown crust on the outside of the pork chops here are two options:
    • Sear them in a hot pan for 1-2 minutes on both sides before putting them in the oven.
    • Turn the oven to broil at the end of cooking to brown the chops at the end.

If you do either of these, reduce the baking cook time by 4-5 minutes so the chops don’t try out.

Notes

  • The cooking time of 25 minutes in this recipe is for bone in pork chops that are approximately 1.5 inches thick. The cooking time will vary based on the size of your pork chops and your oven. Use this time recommendation as a starting point and adjust as needed. Watch your pork chops carefully during cooking to avoid over or under cooking them. I highly recommend using an instant read thermometer.
  • As a general rule of thumb, bone-in pork chops need to cook for about 15-16 minutes per ½ inch of thickness in a 400° Fahrenheit preheated oven.
