    These were a big hit! Delicious chops! I seasoned with salt, pepper and lightly sprinkled Famous Dave’s Rib Rub. Yum!

    I’m going to try this. However, that length of cooking time would lead me to believe it will be way overcooked, in my opinion.
    I would highly recommend using an instant read thermo, and checking every 6 minutes.
    With bone in, the pork at bone will be less cooked. So, have to decide what your level of doneness is yours.

      Hi, Darren – Yes, we definitely recommend a thermometer when cooking meat in an air fryer where size/capacity impacts appropriate time and temp.

    Trust your gut! My air fryer only fit two at a time. The first two, I followed the timing. Super dry, but I love pork chops no matter how over cooked (thanks Mom) so I ate them. The second batch of two…half the time and they were perfect. Don’t just look for the ‘golden’ chop, trust your gut and take them off to rest when you think they are ready. OK, this won’t work for my daughters who live and die by a recipe, but if you’ve been cooking chops for a while, you have the instinct to KNOW when they are done. PS I used Penzeys Ruth Anne Fish & Chicken seasoning. it was perfect (with no add’l salt or pepper)

      Hi, Joanne – If your air fryer only fits two chops at a time, you’d definitely need to adjust the timing, as you learned. I’ve not heard of that seasoning – I will check it out!

    I cut a slit on each side of the bone, basted it with an olive oil spray, put chops into a mixture of roasted garlic & herb, beer can chicken, a pinch of garlic salt, salt/pepper. Cooked on 325 since chops wasn’t very thick for 25 mins. Golden brown and juicy!!
