Sometimes simple really is the best option, especially with a delicious center cut pork chop. All it needs is a simple spice rub and in about 15 minutes you have a delicious dinner. In terms of the pork chops, I opt for the boneless chops since they are lower in calories and fat, but bone-in would work as well. Bone-on chops tend to stay moister and have a bit more flavor.

Quick and tasty! I prepared these in the oven under the broiler, and I have decided that I have been overcooking my pork chops for years. The time that the recipe calls for is perfect and leaves them moist and delicious. The spices are a fun change, but be ready for a kick. My teenage girls didn't care for the "heat," while my husband and I loved it. This is going to be one of my new "go to's" when I need something fast.
