We love pork chops in this house, but only if they’re tender and juicy. No tough, dry pork chops for us!

We love the versatility of boneless pork chops – toss them on the grill, bake them in the oven, throw them in a skillet, and now we’ve even perfected our pork chops in the air fryer.

They turn out so tender and juicy every time and it’s beyond simple to change them up to use whatever seasonings you prefer.

Much like our air fryer BBQ chicken and our air fryer drumsticks, we bust out the air fryer regularly to make these air fryer boneless pork chops.

Serve with some brussels sprouts (recipe coming soon!) or our air fryer tater tots!

Ingredient Notes:

Pork Chops- We are looking for boneless center-cut pork chops. For this recipe, we have half-inch thick chops. If yours are thinner, you will need to be on the lower side of the cooking time. If yours are thicker, then you will need to cook more on the longer side of the cooking recommendation.

Seasoning- The seasoning blend is pretty basic. You should have no problem finding olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper.

How To Make Pork Chops in the Air Fryer:

Seasoning – In a small bowl stir together your garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, salt and pepper. Then drizzle a bit of oil over your pork chops. Now sprinkle the mixed seasoning over the pork chops and rub the seasoning into both sides of the pork chops.

Cook – Cook the pork chops in a preheated air fryer for 10 minutes. Check the center temperature of the pork chops and ensure they are 150 degrees F. If not cook for an additional one or two minutes and check again. Time may vary based on the thickness of your pork chops and your model of air fryer.

Let the pork chops rest for five minutes before serving.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How long will the leftovers last?

The pork chops are best left in the fridge for only 3-5 days after you cook them. Make sure they are in an air tight container for storing.

How should I reheat the leftovers?

We like to use the air fryer for reheating almost everything. For these, heat the air fryer to 300 degrees and cook for 4 minutes or until warm. This will vary based on the thickness of your pork chop.

What temperature are pork chops done?

Pork can safely be cooked to 145 degrees, but we do prefer a bit more well done than that. We cook pork chops to 150 degrees and then allow them to rest for 5 minutes. This will create a tender, juicy pork chop with just a hint of pink in the center. Cooking past 150 degrees will create a drier, tougher chop.

I find it hard to believe that 33 people had no written reviews only starred the recipe?

I’m not sure why that’s hard to believe? Much easier to click a button than to leave a whole comment.

What is the best brand of air fryer. Thank you.

Karly September 19, 2021 - 11:59 am

Hi Jeanette! We’ve tested so many and our current favorites are the Cosori and the Instant Vortex (affiliate links). Neither are terribly loud, both cook really well, and the size is similar between the two.
