Why Cook Pork Chops In the Air Fryer?

The air fryer's rapid air circulation yields pork chops that are crispy on the outside, yet flavorful and juicy on the inside. What more could you want in an easy pork chop recipe?

How to Make Air Fryer Pork Chops

Mix Parmesan, paprika, garlic powder, salt, parsley, and pepper in a shallow dish. Coat each pork chop in olive oil, then dredge in seasoned cheese mixture. Cook the pork chops, two at a time, in the preheated air fryer. Flip the pork chops halfway through cooking. Let the chops rest for a few minutes before serving.

How Long to Cook Pork Chops In the Air Fryer

This recipe should completely cook medium-sized pork chops in about 10 minutes in an air fryer set to 380 degrees F. Of course, since pork chops vary in thickness, it's best to test the temperature before you dig in. An instant read food thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the chop should read at least 145 degrees F.

Cook's Note:

For easy cleanup and less mess, mix the Parmesan mixture in a long flat-lidded plastic to-go container. Place one chop in at a time, snap the lid, and shake. Transfer to the plate and repeat with remaining chops. Perfectly coated chops every single time!
