No fancy seasoning. And no searing.

A guide on how to prep, season and bake pork chops.

These baked pork chops are served with a side of baked green beans, but any vegetable of your choice can be added instead of green beans.

It is not a secret that I use pork in my recipes quite often, I cook with it at least once a week.

Most cuts of pork, like these bone-in pork chops cook fast, combine well with various seasonings and sides and also taste delicious.

What ingredients do I need to make baked bone-in pork chops?

  • bone-in pork chops (about 1 inch or less thickness)
  • salt for seasoning, may need more than the recommended amount in the recipe
  • pepper
  • onion powder
  • paprika
  • oil

How long does it take to bake pork chops?

This Oven Baked Bone-In Pork Chops Recipe is ready in 30 minutes total, including preparation, baking and resting time.

So easy to make, with minimal prep work and minimal ingredients.

Serve these chops with a side salad, mashed potatoes or roasted vegetables.

I personally love the combination of green beans and pork, so I baked some green beans in the oven together with the pork chops.

This created the perfect sheet pan dinner for any day of the week.

Can you grill pork steaks with bones?

I chose to bake these pork chops, but you can also grill them.

It is still quite cold around here, this is why I have not started grilling yet.

Grill pork chops on medium-high for 4-5 minutes per side, until the internal temperature is 145 F.

What seasoning to use for pork chops?

You can marinade or dry rub the chops.

Since I’m usually busy, have limited time and often times I don’t even realize that it is 5 o’clock already, so I have to quickly make dinner, I just use olive (or vegetable) oil and dry spices.

I used:

  • salt
  • pepper
  • onion powder
  • and paprika (a mix of smoked and regular paprika tastes delicious!)

You can also add cumin, oregano, dried parsley, some garlic, cayenne pepper or any other seasoning of your choice.

I brush the pork chops with oil, then add the seasoning on both sides and bake.

How to cook these?

How do you make tender pork chops?

I personally prefer the oven baked method, but you can also grill or pan fry them.

Time for cooking depends on the thickness and method of cooking you choose.

Pork chops are considered safe for consumption if the internal temperature of the meat has reached 145 F.

Marinating Pork 

These baked bone in pork chops are quickly seasoned and baked, but if you’d like to take the extra step, you can marinate them.

For thinner cuts of pork that also contain the bone, I rarely marinate.

I like this technique for thicker cut, boneless pork chops, because they generally lack the flavor bone-in pork chops do.

For the marinade, you can use:

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika (or smoked paprika)
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley (optional)

Why do I prefer to cook these chops in the oven?

Because they cook quickly and stay juicy.

With grilling and pan frying you have the risk of the meat drying and turning into something very hard to chew.

How long do you bake pork chops in the oven for?

It depends on the kind of oven and pan used, but also the thickness of the meat, but I usually bake pork chops at 400 F for 15-20 minutes.

You can turn them once half way through, but you can also let them roast without turning.

What temperature should I cook pork chops to?

The internal temperature of the meat should be 145F and you need to let the chops rest for 3 minutes, before serving.

What to serve these with?

For the baked green beans – I used frozen (defrosted ) green beans, that I seasoned with salt and pepper and baked in the oven at the same time with the meat.

The only thing is that you do need to keep an eye on the green beans and remove them from the oven if they are done before the chops.

I usually remove them at the same time, but in some cases the beans may cook faster than the meat.

  1. I would NEVER shop at Walmart!
    The recipe is very good. I used pot chops from Staters. They are s local chain that pays well and gives health insurance to their employees. 

  2. I never made baked pork chops in the oven before. These were fantastic and so easy! I didn’t use the paprika, but I will next time. pork chops were 1/2 inch thick. Seasoned with pepper, salt and onion powder after putting olive oil on the chops. placed on cookie sheet for 10 minutes a side @ 400 degrees. Perfect!

  3. Hi hun, you may consider revising this portion “I don’t even realize that it is 5 o’cock already” perhaps change it to o’clock! Great recipe though!

  4. Absolutely DELICIOUS!!!!!! I used to avoid pork chops because of how dry they can be but, after deciding to buy some bone-in, pork loin chops, I turned to Pinterest for a recipe. I came upon your recipe, so quick and easy and made it for dinner two weeks ago. I didn’t change a thing! Perfect just as it is. Flavourful, tender and juicy. We liked them so much that I am making them again tonight for dinner. Thank you for sharing your wonderful recipe on Pinterest. 

  5. This was so good! I had about an inch thick boneless pork chops so I marinated them in the mixture for about 30-45 min before baking. I baked at 400 for 25 min paired with asparagus and garlic mashed potatoes. Awesome flavor and quick meal! 

  6. After 20 minutes I found the pan swimming in fat so I poured that off so they could brown. Wish I had checked after 10 minutes had it been mentioned as something to keep an eye on!

  7. I found this recipe on line and gave it a try. I am so glad I did. I cut my chops from a Pork Loin I bought at Costco (therefore, they were boneless).. They were frozen for over a month after I cut them into chops.  They were about 3/4” thick. I made the recipe using the smoked and regular paprika along with the other items shown. I also added a little Lemon Pepper to the mix. I cooked them at 400 degrees, exactly 20 minutes. I let them sit a couple minutes and ran a steak knife through one of the chops to insure it was cooked long enough. The knife literally cut through the chop like it was warm butter. They were cooked perfectly!
    This was one of the easiest recipes I have ever used and the results were far beyond my expectations! 

  8. Just made these and they came out moist and delicious…I always tend to overcook my pork chops so was please to come across this simple recipe that even I could follow. Kudos to you!
