perfect air fryer pork chops

Preparation Time: 1 hour
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Intensity: Easy


  • 4 boneless pork chops (about 1 inch thick)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C) for about 5 minutes.
  2. Prepare Pork Chops: Pat the pork chops dry with paper towels. Brush both sides of the pork chops with olive oil.
  3. Season: In a small bowl, combine the garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, dried thyme, dried rosemary, salt, and pepper. Rub this seasoning mixture evenly over both sides of the pork chops.
  4. Air Fry: Place the seasoned pork chops in the air fryer basket in a single layer, making sure they are not overcrowded. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may need to cook in batches.
  5. Cook: Air fry the pork chops at 400°F (200°C) for 7-8 minutes. Flip the pork chops over and continue cooking for an additional 7-8 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 145°F (63°C) for medium doneness.
  6. Rest: Once cooked, remove the pork chops from the air fryer and let them rest for a few minutes before serving. This allows the juices to redistribute and ensures a juicy pork chop.
  7. Serve: Serve the air fryer pork chops with your favorite sides, such as roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, or a fresh salad.
