Simple Oven Baked Pork Chops

Welcome Pinners! Make sure to check out all our healthy farm recipes here.

You really can have a great tasting simple oven baked pork chop, using bone-in chops (or now called ribeye chop), meal in less than 30 minutes. Sometimes I am all about the simple. Remember my simple juicy pork roast recipe? When you start with great tasting pork, like ours, just a few spices and you are set.

Simple Oven Baked Pork Chops

Cajun Seasoning

  • 2.5 tablespoons Kosher Salt
  • 1 tablespoon dried Oregano
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion power
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet basil
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cracked black pepper.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Sprinkle a little bit of  spices on both sides of your chops. (note: there will be extra Cajun seasoning. Please don’t use it all on a few chops. It will be too salty).  Arrange them on a baking sheet.

Bake for 20-30 minutes flipping them half way. When nearing the end of the baking time use a meat thermometer to check for doneness. A done chop is at 145 degrees.

While these simple oven baked pork chops were baking, I heated up some sweetcorn we froze last summer. I also cooked some whole wheat pasta and served it with butter and dried parsley.

      So sorry it didn’t work out Jack. Tim loves his things salty, he thinks they are great. Maybe you are more like me. I go easier on the salt. Everyone is different ~Emily

        I combined 2 recipes, yours and another that calls for an Italian season bread crumb crust fried till crispy then baked. My fiancé loved them!!!!

      You can always make recipes to your taste, in the case of salt, you can actually omit it if you cannot have salt. And some may not like certain spices and can add, limit, or omit them. Play with recipes, you may find one that comes out amazing your way

      The bone in pork chops are far more tender than boneless. I preheat oven to 375%, place chops in Pam sprayed pan, rub chops w/ tsp olive oil or melted butter. In small bowl, mix all seasons, salt, pepper, garlic, onion powder, tiny bit of oregano & Basil, Mix well, rub on both sides of chops. Bake 25-30 minutes, remove from oven, allow to sit for 10 minutes, serve w/ veg, of choice, potatoes & never forget the apple sauce. Delicious!

    This is a perfectly simple and tasty recipe that allows you to enjoy the true taste of the quality meat. I served mine with fresh steamed green beans and yellow squash over a garlic quinoa & brown rice

    I’m a single guy and made these tonight along with mac n cheese and a salad. I really liked the rub, it had a very unique and great flavor that I haven’t experienced before. Thanks!

    Your recipe came to the rescue tonight. I worked late and had plan on doing the chops on the grill, however, when I got home it began to rain. I “googled” oven baked pork chops and your recipe appeared. THANK YOU the meal was a big hit. Have a fantastic week.

    I found this recipe tonight on a Google search. It was DELICIOUS! My husband must have commented four times during the meal how much he liked it and that we should make it again. I did cut back the cayenne to just a teaspoon because I thought it might be too much hear for our three year old but it was still great. Thanks!

        I love kangaroo, it’s very lean and tasty – but very difficult to find stateside. The texture is similar, but it tastes like kangaroo… And I love this recipe for pork chops – thank you!

    This recipe is fantastic! It’s simple enough to pull off within an hour, yet as tasty as my dad’s chops that can take all day it seems to marinate! Thank you!

    Making these right now! Was excited to find this easy pork chop recipe and it is a bonus that you are Organic Valley farmers! My sister and brother-in-law are also!

    I used this recipe as a guide (like I do with most), and it turned out the Pork Rub I used had very similar ingredients as this recipe uses. I used thick boneless chops and they turned out great. I marinated them for a 4 hours with a little Maggi and the Pork Rub.
    They turned out great.

    Great Recipe! I’m a chop fan and this method was simple and delicious. took out some barbecue sauce, and didn’t even use it once : )

  9. Lee

    Tried this recipe last night pork chops very tender and just enough seasoning! Will use this again glad I found it!

    I used this recipe along with my own way by frying my pork chops a little then placing them in with oven. For my side dishes I made fettuccine noodles with alfredo sauce and corn topped with butter and a little sugar……

    Thank you Emily for this simple and quick recipe. My 3 very picky boys absolutely loved it. The only changes I made, after reading some reviews, was to add garlic powder and lower the amount of salt. Looking forward to trying more of your recipes ☺

    I tried it but I made a horseradish caper sauce with a side potato salad with bleu cheese and crumpled bacon .if you like the heat this should do it wow I will go to sleep now.

    I prepared this recipe tonight with a couple of changes, not on purpose. I substituted chili powder (ran out of cayenne) and I didn’t have any black pepper ground, so I ground it directly on the chops. I bake chops often and we love them! This Cajun seasoning made the best chops ever! Thank you!
