AIR FRYER BONELESS PORK CHOPS

I don’t know about you but I love my air fryer. 

I use it for so many recipes from Air Fryer Cod, Air Fryer Pork Tenderloin, Air Fryer Coconut Chicken Tenders, Air Fryer Salmon to Air Fryer Pork Taquitos

I love how easy air frying is, how crispy the food gets without using a lot of oil and how easy clean-up is. 

Today’s Air Fryer Boneless Pork Chops is the perfect meal for those busy weeknights. They really are the best pork chops. 

The boneless pork chops are rubbed with a spice mixture and then a layer of bbq sauce is added.

Once the pork chops are cooked in the air fryer I like to add another layer of bbq sauce before serving. 

The nice thing about making pork chops for a family of kids that play sports is that they are protein packed.  

Every 3 ounces of pork is packed full of 22 – 24 grams of protein depending on the cut which is great.

WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE IN THESE AIR FRY PORK CHOPS

PORK CHOPS: When I make this I like to use boneless pork chops but you can use bone-in if you want. Just remember the cook time may vary because sometimes bone-in pork chops take a bit longer to cook. 

This recipe uses 4 pork chops that are 7-8 ounces and are pretty thick pork chops.

SPICES: These pork chops are rubbed with a spice mixture of paprika and garlic powder before adding the BBQ sauce on them. I like starting with the seasoned pork chops because it adds that extra layer of flavor. 

If you have a BBQ rub on hand you can use that instead to rub on both sides of the pork chops. 

BBQ SAUCE: I like to make a homemade BBQ sauce when I make these pork chops.

If you have a favorite store-bought BBQ sauce you can use that to make this recipe even easier.

WHAT TEMPERATURE SHOULD A PORK CHOPS BE COOKED TO?

When cooking pork you want to see that blush of pink inside the pork or reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees F.

I know a lot of people still think that pork should be cooked until all of the pink is gone, but the FDA recommends a blush of pink as safe. If you overcook your pork it will be dried out and not as flavorful.

HOW DO I STORE LEFTOVER PORK CHOPS?

You can store cooked pork chops in a shallow airtight container in the fridge.

Pork chops will last for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator.
