Four pork chops would need 30 minutes per side, be sure to check on them as each oven is different.

    I made this for my boyfriend and I. He is a huge food critic and he LOVED it. He even picked up the bone with his fingers so he could chew all the meat off. It’s so simple but so good! This will be an easy “go-to” for me.

    I only have boneless pork chops. Can I still make this? Or is there anything I could add to still be able to use this recipe?

    Try basting with honey about 15 mins b4 they are done, flipping and repeating other side half way thru the last 15 mins. Helps with carmelizing too. Very yummy.

    Came out perfect. Highly recommended. Now a definite addition to our diet. Plus about 25% the cost of beef

    Do you bake uncovered?

    • posted by Easy Recipe Depot on March 5, 2017

      Cover it for most of the baking time and if you like it crispy just uncover it for the last 10 minutes.

    Would boneless pork chops work as fine as bone in porkchops?

    What about thick cut pork chops? I’m making this for dinner for the 1st time and we like a thicker chop…

    • posted by Easy Recipe Depot on March 13, 2017

      If you like them thicker just keep them in the oven 5 to 10 more minutes. Depends on the degree of doneness you like.

    Why do you line the pan with foil, do you cover the pork chops

  22. posted by Deb Miller on March 14, 2017

    Also why do you increase baking time with more chops if they are laid in a single layer on the pan, why would they not all cook the same. In the time given

  23. posted by A. J.Mitch on March 17, 2017

    Are the pork chops cooked with cover on baking dish?

  24. posted by Easy Recipe Depot on March 19, 2017

    Yes they are covered and if you like them crispy you should take off the cover for the last 5-10 minutes.
