  • Air Fryer
  • Kitchen tongs


  • 4 bone-in pork chops about 1 inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Cooking spray for greasing the air fryer basket


  • Preheat the Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C) for about 5 minutes.
  • Season the Pork Chops: In a small bowl, mix together garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, dried thyme, salt, and black pepper. Rub the pork chops with olive oil, then coat them evenly with the spice mixture.
  • Grease the Air Fryer Basket: Lightly coat the air fryer basket with cooking spray to prevent sticking.
  • Air Fry the Pork Chops: Place the seasoned pork chops in the air fryer basket, ensuring they are not crowded. Cook at 400°F (200°C) for 6 minutes, then flip the chops and cook for an additional 6 minutes.
  • Check for Doneness: Use a meat thermometer to ensure the internal temperature of the pork chops reaches 145°F (63°C). If needed, cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.
  • Resting Time: Allow the pork chops to rest for 5 minutes before serving. This helps the juices redistribute, keeping the chops moist and flavorful.
  • Serve: Plate the air-fried pork chops and pair them with your choice of sides, such as buttery mashed potatoes or a vibrant side salad.


  1. Experiment with different spice blends for a personalized touch.
  2. Ensure the pork chops are well-seasoned for optimal flavor.
  3. Adjust cooking time based on the thickness of your pork chops and the specific model of your air fryer.
