Be careful when cooking the pork chops. Pork chops can easily be overcooked as they are a lean form of meat. If they are over cooked they will dry out and become chewy and much less tasty. Due to the heat the pork chops retain , they will continue to cook after being removed from the oven. If your chops are on the thinner side it is advisable to cook them no more than 4-5 minutes. Thicker pork chops will cook slightly longer. A good way to make sure that you do not overcook them, is to use a meat thermometer. The pork will we done when the thickest part reads 63ยฐ Celsius, when the thermometer is stuck in from the side edge.
