How To Cook Pork Chops in the Air Fryer
Because this recipe has no breading, it's super simple to make. To start, you will mix all the seasonings in a small bowl and then pat your pork chops dry. Using your hands, get the seasoning mixture fully coated around all sides of the pork chops.
From there, spray the bottom of the air fryer with a little avocado oil spray and add in your pork chops. Spritz the pork chops one more time with oil spray and that’s it! Air fry at 370 degrees for 9-11 minutes depending on the thickness of your pork chops. Ten minutes was the sweet spot for me for perfectly juicy pork chops.
I recommend taking a look at 9 minutes in and you can always add time from there if you need to depending on the thickness of your pork chops. I have also tried this recipe with breaded porkchops using the same method as my buffalo chicken strips and it works out great!
