Air Fryer Boneless Pork Chops Recipe

Air Fryer Boneless Pork Chops Recipe – moist and delicious pork chops made in under 20 minutes! A great, low-carb, weeknight meal that every family needs!

If you love pork chops that have a crispy exterior and a tender, juicy interior you are going to love this recipe. When cooked in an air fryer the meat cooks evenly and quickly so that the moisture remains inside.

There is nothing worse than taking a bite into a pork chop when the meat is tough and hard to chew. Instead, when using the air fryer cooking method you will find that the meat is moist and delicious.

Not only do thin, boneless pork chops turn out delicious when cooked using the right method, they are also a budget friendly meal. Pork chops are one of the cheapest cuts of meat that you can purchase.

The actual taste of the meat is fairly bland, however, they will take on the flavor of whatever sauce or spices that they are cooked with.

Whether you are cooking Thin Pork Chops On The Stove in a simple homemade Honey Dijon mustard sauce, or adding a dry rub to Bone In Sheet Pan Pork Chops, the flavors added will transfer to the meat itself.

And when it comes to cooking thin pork chops in my Power 360 Air Fryer I always use my favorite pork dry rub to season the meat. It is a quick, homemade dry rub recipe that provides a ton of flavor.

However, you can use whatever dry rub that you prefer.

Easy Air Fryer Boneless Pork Chops Recipe

First, start with 3/4 – 1 inch size boneless pork chops. Remove them from the refrigerator and pat them dry.

Then rub both sides of the meat with olive oil. Be sure to use straight olive oil and not extra virgin olive oil. Regular olive oil has a higher smoke point. And because we will be cooking these at 400°F, you don’t want the pork chops to start smoking while cooking in the air fryer.

Start with pork chops that are between 3/4 – 1 inch thick.

However, a great alternative to olive oil is yellow mustard. It will give you a slightly tangy flavor to your air fryer pork chops that is delicious!

Now apply your favorite pork rub on both sides of each piece of meat. We use the same rub that we use for our pulled pork recipe. However, if you want to keep these boneless pork chops low-carb, skip the brown sugar.

Air Fryer Cooking Instructions For Boneless Pork Chops

Oil the air fryer basket with a high heat oil. Then preheat your Air Fryer at 400°F for 3-5 minutes.

Place the pork chops in the basket and cook at 400°F for 12 minutes. After they have been cooking for 7 minutes flip the pork chops over. You can also rotate them from front to back or from side to side as well.

dry rub
Use your favorite homemade, or store-bought pork rub.

Once the cook time is up, use a digital thermometer to make sure that the internal temperature has reached 145°F.

Remove the pork chops from the air fryer and let rest for 5 minutes. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP!! This is what allows the juices to reabsorb back into the meat fibers, giving the finished product a moist and tender interior.

There you have it, dinner on the table in less than 20 minutes! And don’t worry if you only have bone in pork chops. I have a great Bone-In Pork Chops recipe as well for the Air Fryer.

What To Serve With Boneless Pork Chops

How To Store Boneless Pork Chops

How to Reheat Boneless Pork Chops

There are a few ways you can reheat boneless pork chops, depending on your preferences and the time that you have.

Air fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 350°F (175°C). Place the pork chops in the air fryer basket and cook for 3-5 minutes, or until the pork chops are heated through.

Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Place the pork chops in a baking dish with 1 teaspoon of water or on a baking sheet, and cover them with foil. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the pork chops are heated through.
