Baked BBQ Pork Chops

Juicy tender oven baked chops slathered in spicy BBQ sauce and topped with quick spicy pecans for a bonus crunch.

This recipe pays homage to my childhood memories of sheet pan pork chops with modern updates!


For the Quick Spicy Pecans: - Brown sugar - Salt - Cayenne - Jalapeno infused olive oil - Water For the Pork Chops : - Bone-in pork chops - Brown sugar - Salt - Paprika - Cumin


Prep the chops: Preheat the oven to 425F. Pat the chops dry and line a baking sheet with foil. Place the chops on the baking sheet.

Whisk the brown sugar, salt, paprika, cumin, and pepper together in a small bowl. Pat the brown sugar-spice mixture all over the chops on both sides.

Bake the Pork Chops: Bake for 15 minutes until the pork reaches 135 degrees F. Remove from oven, and set the oven to broil. Move the rack to the second highest slot.

Broil the Pork Chops: Baste the chops in Head Country hot and spicy sauce, coating both sides. Add the pecans around the pork, and place under the broiler.

Cook for 2 minutes. Remove from the oven, flip the pork chops. Return to the oven and broil another 2 to 4 minutes, until sauce is tacky and pork chops temp at 140F.
