Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a large, 13x9-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
In a small bowl combine the salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder and brown sugar.
Lay pork chops in the prepared baking dish, side by side but not touching. Coat both sides of each chop with the olive oil.
Sprinkle half of the seasoning blend over the tops of the pork chops and rub into the meat with your hands. Repeat on the flip side of the meat.
Slide the dish into the preheated oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until pork registers 145 degrees F on a meat thermometer.
Tent with foil and let stand for 5-10 minutes before serving.
If you're not getting that golden color you're looking for, broil the chops during the last several minutes.Or, you could opt to sear the chops in a cast iron or stainless steel skillet with a little melted butter or olive oil. This will seal in the flavor and give you a nice golden crust. You will probably want to take several minutes off of the cooking time to account for the pre-cook.
