On a large sheet pan sprayed with non stick cooking spray, arrange the pork chops on one side and the potatoes on the other- in a single layer. Drizzle everything with the olive oil, tossing lightly to coat. Salt everything lightly, but liberally season with freshly cracked black pepper.
In a separate bowl, use a fork to stir together the ranch, paprika, and chili powder until evenly combined. Sprinkle the seasoning mixture evenly out over both the meat and potatoes. Press into the pork chops to make sure it sticks.
Bake at 400 degrees for 35-40 minutes, or until the pork chops are cooked through, but still tender & moist.
Let the pork chops rest for 2-3 minutes before serving. Top with the parsley, if desired, and serve with a fresh side salad & veggie of choice for a complete family meal.
