What seasoning to use for bone-in 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’cock already, so I have to quickly make dinner, I just use olive (or vegetable) oil and dry spices.
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.

How to cook bone-in 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.
Why do I prefer to cook these pork 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 oven baked bone-in pork chops 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.
