Ingredients• 1 tablespoon paprika • 2 teaspoons onion powder • 2 teaspoons garlic powder • 1 teaspoon salt • 1 teaspoon pepper • 1 teaspoon oregano • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided • 4 pork chops, boneless
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
In a small bowl, mix the paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and oregano.
Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil over both sides of the pork chops.
Sprinkle the spice mixture evenly over both sides of the pork chops.
Place the spiced chops in a 9x13-inch baking dish. Use a smaller baking dish if the pork chops are too far away from each other; they should be laid relatively close to each other.
Drizzle the remaining olive oil over the pork chops in the baking dish.
Bake until the chops reach an internal temperature of 140 degrees F, about 18-20 minutes.
Remove the chops from the oven, cover them in foil, and let them rest for 5 minutes. The chops should come up to a safe eating temperature of 145 degrees F.
