Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Additional Time 30 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless pork chops, about 1 inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 teaspoons lemon pepper seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Parsley, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Add the pork chops to a shallow dish in an even layer or a zip top bag.
  2. Stir together the oil, Worcestershire sauce, lemon pepper, and paprika. Pour over the pork chops and rub to coat the chops in the seasoning.
  3. Let marinate for at least 30 minutes and up to 8 hours. 
  4. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking small baking sheet with parchment paper.
  5. Arrange pork chops on the baking sheet. Top each pork chop with a piece of butter.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes or until pork chops reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees. 
  7. Let rest for 5 minutes before sprinkling with parsley and serving.

Notes

Pork chops can be safely eaten once they reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees. We recommend checking with a meat thermometer to get the perfect temp. Overbaked pork chops tend to dry out pretty quickly.

If you don't have time to marinate the pork chops, you can bake them right away. They are more flavorful after marinating, but still quite tasty either way!
