Baked Pork Chops with Lime and Chive ~ Easy Pork Chop Recipe

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 1 lb pork chops medium to thick cut
  • 1/3 cup chives or green onions chopped
  • lemon pepper I like McCormick brand
  • zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced


  1. Place pork chops in a dish to marinate them, sprinkle the lemon pepper on each side of the pork chops. In a small bowl add green onions, lime zest, lime juice, oil and garlic then mix together. TIP... I like to use a garlic press to mince my garlic.
  2. Spoon the oil mixture on top of the pork chops, cover with plastic wrap put in the refrigerator and marinate for 1- 3 hours.
  3. Heat a large skillet to medium high heat, brown the pork chops on each side for about 1 minute. TIP ~ I normally scrap off the onions while I brown the pork chops.. them add them back on top before I bake them in the oven.
  4. Take off the stove top and finish cooking on the skillet in a 375 degree oven for 20-25 minutes. Till pork is at least 145 degrees in the middle. I love my meat thermometer for cooking pork, helps me know I cooked it enough before it get to over cooked and though.
