Pork Chops Air Fryer Recipe

It is not always easy to cook pork chops because most of the time they come out dry and tough if you make them the traditional way. However, air fryers change all that and make tender, juicy pork chops with crispy outside just in at most 20 minutes. Pork chops can be rubbed with different seasonings for perfect flavor. So, feel free to change the seasoning in the recipe below to your taste, which originally uses garlic, parsley, and butter.

Pork chops should be cooked in the air fryer for 10 to 20 minutes depending on the thickness of the meat. To be precise, they should be cooked to an internal temperature 145 degrees Fahrenheit to eat them safely.

Let’s move on to the recipe and have the best pork chops for dinner!
