Delicious Air Fryer Pork Chops

Pork chops can get overlooked. We get it—we’ve had our fair share of overdone, dry pork chops. But, when cooked right, they can be juicy and ultra-flavorful, while still getting a slight crisp on the outside. That’s where the magic of the air fryer comes in. With our mix of seasonings and this handy kitchen gadget, you can have a practically hands-off dinner in less than 30 minutes. If you usually steer clear of pork chops, this recipe is here to change your mind—it’s a weeknight dinner winner.


Delicious Air Fryer Pork Chops


  • 4 boneless pork chops, about 1″-thick
  • 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 c. finely grated Parmesan
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper


Pat pork chops dry with paper towels, then coat both sides with oil.

In a medium bowl, combine Parmesan, garlic powder, salt, onion powder, paprika, and black pepper. Coat both sides of pork chops with Parmesan mixture, pressing to adhere.

In an air-fryer basket, arrange pork chops in a single layer. Cook at 375°, flipping halfway through, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of pork chop registers 145°, about 9 minutes.

Let pork chops rest about 10 minutes before serving.
