Notes

*I let my pork chops set out for about half an hour before I cook them. I like to have the meat more at room temperature before I cook it.
*We also had a combination of bone-in and boneless chops either will work for this recipe.
*I did use a bacon splatter screen to stop some of the splashings of the butter and while the pork chops cooked*
*I did flip mine half way through the oven time for evenness, and because I wanted to see how they were cooking as well.
*I took the time to add on more Thyme just to add in more flavor you can skip this step if you want or are afraid of overseasoning.
