How do you cook pork chops in the air fryer?

Many people prefer preheating the air fryer, but it’s not necessary for this recipe.  The 12 minute cook time includes the time to heat up.  This makes it easier to plan your meal from start to finish.

This recipe uses minimal ingredients

You only need a light spritz of oil and a tablespoon of seasoning to cook up 2 large pork chops.  This is enough to feed 2 adults and 2 kids. 

I’m a huge fan of seasoning blends to save time when making dinner.  This herb and garlic seasoning is my most used and you’ll find it in many of my recipes.  If you don’t have it, you can simply use an equal blend of onion powder, garlic powder and Italian seasoning along with a pinch of salt.

You can also switch up the flavor of the meat by using your favorite seasoning blend for pork in place of the herb and garlic seasoning.

What is the best pork chop for the air fryer?

You can use bone-in or bone-less pork loin chops.

I used pork loin chops with the bone because have enough fat to keep the pork chops juicy and give them flavor.  Because you are using the air fryer they don’t cook in the fat, which drains into the bottom of the air fryer basket.

You could use boneless pork loin chops, but they may dry out a bit more and you would need to keep an eye on cooking time.  Since they are often a little thinner and cook faster.

What is a good side dish for Air Fryer Herb Crusted Pork Chops?

To create a well rounded meal, I suggest serving these pork chops with a grain and at least one veggie.  

Here are a few of my suggestions:

I used 2 large pork chops that were around 3/4 inch thick.  For smaller chops you would want to reduce cooking time.

  1. We have 1″ thick bone-in chops we can’t wait to try. I don’t see a cooking temperature. Our air fryer goes up to 400° Wassup?
