This serves four, but is easily expandable. Very simple and makes the most tender pork chops you will ever eat.

I put olive oil in the bottom of a glass casserole dish just to coat then arranged the chops in the dish. I dotted the chops with a little butter added the seasonings (including a little garlic salt) and sealed the dish with foil before baking. Tender easy and good! Read More

BEWARE: put the tinfoil wrapped pork in a baking dish! The recipe didn't say to do so. I put them on my oven rack the oil leaked out and started a fire in my oven that smoked up the entire house. Read More

This recipe was great!!! I did all the steps but added a few extra things: 2 tsp of Worcestershire sauce instead of 1, salt/pepper & seasoning salt, and I added freshly minced garlic to the top of all the chops. That with everything else...Mmmm delicious! Read More

I liked this recipe! I was concerned about the amount of olive oil and butter for each chop since I was using boneless chops so I halved the amount of olive oil and butter for each foil wrapped chop. They still turned out tender and delicious. Thanks! Read More

This was very good. I made it using the exact ingredients and cooking instructions except I browned the chops first. I cook on 350 for 30 minutes then lowered to 200 for 15 minutes because I was afraid of overcooking them. They came out very moist almost too moist and the bottoms had a nice thin brown crust from the butter and oil. Yum! My kids ate it up quickly my husband and I thought it was good as well but were a little thrown off with how tender they were. They almost had a tender fish consistency which is why I am rating it 4 stars. I will definitely cook these again experiment with seasonings and cook them in the oven for less time. Read More

This recipe was simple & tasty. For 8 thin cut chops after seasoning them I put 4 T of olive oil in a glass pan & rubbed the pc's in it. Then in the same pan put 2T of melted butter mixed w/worcestershire sauce & a bit of garlic again rubbed the pc in this mixture. Then baked covered in the same pan. Made lots of juice didn't dry out at all perhaps even less oil could be used. The pork chops cooked in less time maybe 20 min and were very flavorful. Read More

Easy and simple recipe! Make sure to put the wrapped chops in a baking dish to catch the leaking oil. I halved the oil and butter--next time I will 1/4 the amount. You just don't need nearly as much as the recipe calls for. Flavor was good...I used soy instead of worchestershire like some of the other reviews suggested. I also baked at 350 but I found they needed 45 min at this temp not 35 min. I think the lower temp helps keep the chops tender. I will use this recipe again next time I'm in a rush and need something simple. Read More

I let the pork chops marinate in some lemon pepper and worchester sauce for a few hours before baking. I added some more lemon pepper and w. sauce before baking and they turned out GREAT! Read More

Not at all awesome other than for its simplicity. Despite the generous amount of lemon-pepper I used the taste was rather bland. My husband had to add a dash of barbecue sauce to give the stuff some taste. Read More
