Why You Have To Try These Air Fryer Pork Chops

These Air Fryer Pork Chops are such a great keto air fryer recipe, especially when paired with your favorite sides.

The air fryer adds the perfect light crisp to the outer layer of the meat which gives it a delightful texture.

I just love my air fryer because of how much easier it makes so many recipes! Not to mention they are far less greasy in the air fryer!

How to Make Perfect Air Fryer Pork Chops

  1. Combine all of the herbs and seasonings along with 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a bowl. Stir until well incorporated, crushing the herbs with the back of the spoon while doing so.
  2. Spread the seasoning mix evenly over both sides of the pork chops.
  3. Place the pork chops in the air fryer basket and set the air fryer at 380F for 15 minutes.
  4. The best way to be sure your pork chops are cooked, use a meat thermometer.

How Long Do You Cook A Pork Chop In An Air Fryer?

The time required for cooking a pork chop in an air fryer varies on the thickness of the pork chop.

Thicker pork chops will take longer to reach a safe internal temperature. For this recipe, I used pork chops that were about one inch thick. They took 15 minutes to cook completely.

What is a Safe Internal Temperatureure For Pork Chops?

Pork chops need to reach an internal temperature of 145 F. The best way to know when they’re done is to use a meat thermometer. You won’t be able to tell visually. As long as you don’t overcook them, you will get juicy pork chops in an air fryer.

What Is The Best Way To Season Pork Chops?

I call this Porchetta style (pronounced pork-ketta) after the classic Italian pork roast. That pork roast also contains fennel, rosemary, sage, etc. But it takes hours since it’s a whole pork roast. This is our shortcut version of classic porchetta.

The spice mix is made up of:

You can use any type of seasoning mix for this. Try the Dukkah recipe for this. If you’d like a different way of making pork chops, try these Honey Mustard Pork Chops in the air fryer too. My other favorite way to cook pork chops is this Instant Pot Pork chops and rice recipe.

Tips for Making Air Fryer Pork Chops

  • Try to use pork chops with a little fat around the edges. Air frying does an amazing job of crisping fat.
  • If you want perfect presentation, use the tip of a sharp knife to slash the fat in two or three places. This will prevent the pork chop from curling into itself.
  • Use thinner pork chops in this recipe so that you don’t have the outside too done while the insides stay hot. The hot air in an air fryer crisps outsides of the food really fast.
  • As long as you don’t overcook the chops, they will be quite juicy in an air fryer. The best way to know when they’re done is to use a meat thermometer. You won’t be able to tell visually.

Flavorful Air Fryer Pork Chops

These Air Fryer Pork Chops won’t leave you with a bland main dish and the best part, they’re super easy and your family is sure to love them. I also like making this Chicken Fried Steak recipe in my air fryer. It’s so good, I don’t think I’m ever pan-frying it again!

What To Serve with Air Fryer Pork Chops?

Serve these pork chops with all of your favorite side dishes. Rice, salad, potato and veggie sides all make great accompaniments.

  • If you’re looking for some great side dish options to go along with these Air Fryer Pork Chops, check out my Rosemary Roasted Potatoes. These are quick and easy to make in your air fryer and they’re absolutely delicious.
  • This Air Fryer Creamed spinach recipe is another of my favorite things to make.

Pork Chops With No Breading?

I wanted to keep these pork chops low carb and keto-friendly. You will see a lot of recipes that do require breading but these come out so perfectly without it. Skip the extra prep time and still create a delicious meal.
