Baked pork chops are one of my favorite go-to dinner options. Pork is a protein-rich food with a mild flavor, making it ideal for family-friendly dinner recipes.
Why baked? In all of my recipes, I try to limit the number of pans and dishes I dirty. Baking usually limits the mess to just one or two pans.
Also, with so many demands on my time and attention after school and work, I like meals that I don’t have to stand over. Baked dishes make it easier to multitask. I can help my daughter with her homework while dinner bakes in the oven.
