Air Fryer Pork Chops

Let’s be honest. Pork Chops have never been that exciting… I remember as I was growing up when mom said it was pork chop night I would try to hide the fact that I hated them. They were so dry and had zero flavor. I vowed to never make them for my kids. But let’s be honest, everything is better in the Air Fryer so that is why I had to try and create an Air Fryer Pork Chop recipe that the kids and I would love. I have to say this recipe is so good, the whole family gives it two things up!

These pork chops are juicy and full of flavor from the mix of seasonings that are rubbed onto the pork chop. This will soon become your go-to recipe on those busy weeknights when you are short on time!

Tips Tricks and FAQs

Storage

If you have leftover pork chops you will want to store them in the fridge in an airtight container. These will last for up to 3 days. 

Can I stack pork chops on top of each other in the Air Fryer?

You do not want to stack your pork chops on top of each other when cooking them. When you do this it does not allow the hot air to circulate to the parts that are touching causing them to not cook correctly/ be undercooked.
