Herb Marinated Pork Chops

Awhile back I was searching for a good marinade for pork chops and tenderloins.  Sifting through tons of recipes I concocted this very easy and simple marinade thats my go to recipe for pork.  Not only does my family throughly enjoy this recipe but I had given it to my mother who also makes this fairly often.  She said it works well with boneless skinless chicken breasts as well.

4-5 Pork Chops or Pork Tenderloin (Bone in or Boneless, whatever tickles your fancy)
4 Tbsp Olive Oil, divided
1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
1/2 tsp Dried Basil
1/2 tsp Dried Parsley
1/2 tsp Dried Oregano
1/2 tsp Dried Thyme
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Onion Powder

Place your pork chops in a ziploc bag.  Mix together 3 Tbsp olive oil and the rest of the ingredients.  Pour over the pork chops and close.  Shake the bag up to make sure the pork is throughly covered.  Refrigerate for 3-4 hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place the remaining Tbsp of olive oil in the pan and heat over medium heat.  Sear both sides of the pork chops and place in a baking dish.  Pour about 1/2-1 cup water in with the pork chops so the water reaches half way up the meat.  Place in the oven and bake for 45-50 minutes, until a thermometer reaches 170 degrees.
