I don’t know why but every day it feels like a surprise that my kids need to eat dinner! I know it’s going to happen, but on most days I can’t get my act together to actually plan for it, and of course it’s on those days that I am almost out of ingredients and regret not food shopping before I run out of options.

So I was super happy when my friend sent me this easy 2 ingredient roasted pork chops recipe (ok it’s technically 3 but salt and pepper doesn’t count, does it?). I knew I had to share it with y'all lazy moms like me.

  • 4 boneless center-cut pork chops
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons dried thyme, lightly crushed, or more to taste

Preheat Your Oven: Let's kick things off by preheating your oven to 375°F (190°C). 
Pork Chop Prep: Sprinkle pork chops on all sides with thyme, salt, and pepper. Place on a baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven about about 20 minutes. If you’re super fancy and own a meat thermometer,  insert it into the thickest part of a pork chop and it will be ready once it reads 165 degrees F (74 degrees C)
Cover the pork chops with aluminum foil (form a tent-like cover) and let rest 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
