To a bowl, add extra virgin olive oil, fennel seeds, oregano, parsley, onion powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, brown sugar and mix together to combine to form a marinade.
Rub the marinade on the sides of the pork. Drizzle with about a tablespoon of olive oil and bake in the oven uncovered for 10 minutes. Bring the pork chops out of the oven, flip sides and baste with the pan juice. Return the pan into the oven and continue to bake for another 7 minutes or until the internal temperature reads 165F.
Transfer the pork chops to a plate, cover with an aluminium tin foil and rest for 5 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
Let the thickness of the pork guide you on how long you bake them for. If the pork thickness is not up to an inch, then cook the pork lesser than specified in this recipe.
For more caramelised finish, place the pork under the grill/broil for a few minutes before serving.
For optimum flavour, marinade this pork chop for about 30 minutes or overnight preferably. You can double this recipe if using more than 4 pork chops.
