Moist Herbed Pork Chops

I found a pork recipe in a newspaper many years ago, but I lightened it up quite a bit. This version is so tasty that I use it for weekend company as well as weeknight dinners. -Linda Austin of Fayetteville, Arkansas

    To bake pork chops, Heat oven to 350 degrees. In 10 inch skillet, brown pork chops over medium heat. Arrange the pork chops in a baking dish with a little of the marinade. Cover with aluminum foil and back for 60-70 minutes or until thermometer reads 160°, basting frequently. Enjoy!KT

    Re: Moist Herbed Pork ChopsWhat other method is an option for cooking these pork chops? The recipe said "If grilling", which isn't an option in our part of the country in the winter.
