Here’s a basic recipe for air fryer pork chops:


  • Pork chops

  • Salt and pepper (or your preferred seasonings)

  • Olive oil (optional)


  • Set your air fryer to the desired temperature. Typically, a temperature between 350°F to 400°F (175°C to 200°C) works well for pork chops.
  • Season the pork chops with salt, pepper, and any other desired seasonings. You can use a variety of herbs and spices to add flavor.
  • If you want a crispier exterior, you can lightly brush the pork chops with olive oil. This is optional, but it can enhance the browning and add flavor.
  • Place the seasoned pork chops in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Make sure not to overcrowd them to ensure even cooking.
  • Cook the pork chops in the air fryer for about 12-20 minutes, depending on the thickness of the chops and the specific model of your air fryer. Flip the chops halfway through the cooking time to ensure even browning.
  • Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature. Pork chops are safe to eat when they reach an internal temperature of 145°F (63°C).
  • Allow the pork chops to rest for a few minutes before serving. This helps the juices redistribute throughout the meat, ensuring a juicier result.
