This recipe is one of those where you literally just sprinkled a bit of this and a bit of that but somehow turned out to be amazing.  I remember the day I first made these Baked Pork Chops – it was one of those days where you just needed to get a meal on the table with minimal effort.   I literally headed into my pantry and grabbed whatever was on hand and tossed it all together.   The ingredients were simple but the flavor of the baked pork chops were anything but, we cleaned our plates.   To complete the meal, pigeon peas and rice (which I will be sharing soon), was served alongside the pork chops.    My 5 ingredient yellow rice will also pair nicely with this dish.

I rarely cook pork chops but when I do, I like to make sure that it’s tender and easy for young children to eat.   Baking the pork chops covered creates a pocket of steam and causes it be become tender in the process.  I then remove the foil and let it bake at a higher heat which then browns the outside.   This is one of my favorite ways to cook pork!   The pork chops were juicy, tender and packed full of flavor.  Enjoy!
