Tips for Perfectly Baked Pork Chops

  • To achieve a crispier exterior, use either a baking sheet fitted with an oven-safe rack or a broiler pan. This allows air to circulate around the pork chops.
  • This recipe is designed for boneless pork chops that are about 1/2 inch thick. Adjust the baking time if your pork chops are thicker or thinner.
  • For bone-in pork chops, they will require a longer baking time. Use a meat thermometer to ensure they reach an internal temperature of 145°F.
  • Serve these delicious pork chops with mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, green beans, or a side salad for a complete meal.
