"Pork is fairly easy to make in the oven. Meals like Pork Tenderloin with Sun-Dried Tomatoes & Capers and Pork over Warm Kale and Asparagus Salad take less than 30 minutes to make. They are great options for busy workdays. These smoky bacon baked pork chops are another quick dinner you can wrap up after work. It requires no marinating and very minimum prep work. To make it even faster, cook the bacon beforehand. :) :)"

NotesThis recipe can be easily made for 4 servings by doubling the amount of the ingredients. Instead of using a cast iron skillet, prepare a baking sheet by lining it with aluminum foil for baking the pork chops.

I served them with Thai vegetable salad:

This looks really delicious. Sometimes pork chops need a little extra flavor... what better way to get that than with some bacon?

This looks and sounds fantastic! I'm definitely going to have to give this a go...

This looks amazing! This would definitely fit a low carb or low starch diet. I don't do light anything so full fat mayonnaise will do. I buy my chipotles dried so never have sauce. Do you know of a good substitute? If I can't, I may just by a can to try this dish out.

These sound wonderful and I'm especially intrigued by the delicious-sounding bacon and cheese mixture. We're going to be grilling some burgers in the next day or so, and I think I might well make up some of the cheese mixture for use on them. I will try it on pork chops eventually, but when I read this, I thought immediately about how tasty this would be on grilled burgers.

This pork chop looks absolutely lovely! Looks yummy, quick and easy for busy weekdays. Perfect. Added to my recipe collection. Will make this pork chop this week. This will be great with potatoes and salad. Im so blessed having boys who love salad. Less effort to make them eat veggies! )

I do like pork chops. This recipe seems a convenient mid-week meal if you are pressed for time. Bacon goes will with pork. I am keen to try the spicy flavors that are in this recipe as well. I can imagine these pork chops being quite moist cooked this way. The thai vegetable salad looks good too.
