Easy Oven Baked Pork Chops
These thick, juicy, tender Pork Chops are seasoned to perfection then baked in the oven together with potatoes to create a simple but delicious dinner!
- 2 lbs potatoes such as Yukon gold, peeled and cut into cubes
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 4 pork chops bone-in, about 1 inch in thickness
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
Preheat oven and prepare baking sheet: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet or line it with parchment paper.
Prepare potatoes: In a large bowl, coat the potatoes in the oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper and spread onto half the sheet pan.
Prepare pork chops: Season the pork chops with the garlic powder, Italian seasoning and some salt and pepper. Transfer the chops to the other half of the sheet pan.
Bake: Place the sheet pan in the oven and bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 145 F degrees and the potatoes are fork tender.
Let the chops rest for at least 5 minutes before cutting into them.
Pork: This recipe can be made using any pork chops, whether they're bone-in or boneless. I prefer bone-in chops because they're juicier.
Keep in mind that cooking time will vary depending on thickness of pork chops. Best way to tell when they're done is to use an meat thermometer and when the internal temperature of the chops reaches 145 F degrees, they are done.
Potatoes: Make sure you cut the potatoes all equal sizes, about 1 1/2 inches cubes, so this way they all cook at the same time.
