OVEN BAKED PORK CHOP FAQs
How long do you cook pork chops in the oven?
Bake oven baked pork chops at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until they reach an internal temperature of 145-150 degrees. You can turn off the oven and leave the oven door open about 30% to let them rest for 3-5 minutes before serving.

MORE PORK LOIN RECIPES
How do you cook pork loin chops in the oven?
Pork Loin chops (like in this recipe) are primarily “white meat” of the pig. Meaning less fat than the darker meat you’d find in shoulder chops or country style ribs. This means you need to keep a close eye to make sure it doesn’t dry out.
The “dark meat” chops you can normally find less expensively at the store can handle a longer cooking time or braising. Start with an extra five minutes in the oven then check for doneness.
