Simple, savory, and super quick to make! Besides being incredibly tasty, these 3 Ingredient Baked Pork Chops take less than 5 minutes to prepare! All you need is pork chops, caesar dressing and a little parmesan… voila – your main course is ready to go!
Do you cover pork chops while baking?
Aluminum foil is sometimes used to cover dishes in the oven to prevent the food from burning or drying out. With this particular dish, foil isn’t necessary. You absolutely can cover, but cooking uncovered yields a juicy, moist chop with no complaints!
What temp should Pork Chops be cooked to?
Whether you’re grilling bone-in loin chops or oven-roasting pork tenderloin, 145°F is the sweet spot of tender, juicy pork perfection. This temperature holds true for all cuts of pork (with the lone exception of ground pork, which should be cooked to 160°F).
How long do you cook pork chops with bone in the oven?
The easiest method is to bake your pork chops at 350 F in a shallow, uncovered roasting pan. Using this method, expect bone-in pork chops to require about 20 minutes cooking time per pound, and boneless pork chops to need about 23 minutes per pound. We use fairly thin cuts for this dish so cooking time for us is about 25 minutes.

Want to make this dairy-free? We recommend this caesar dressing! This is one of Ashley’s favorites. She typically reserves it for herself because it is a little pricier, and uses the Kraft for the rest of the family 🙂 Just leave off the parmesan cheese or use of of the many delicious dairy free cheese options!
