Here are some tips to make your Air Fryer Garlic Herb Pork Chops even more delicious:

  1. Choose the Right Pork Chops: Opt for boneless pork chops that are about 1 inch thick. This ensures they cook evenly and remain juicy inside.
  2. Pat Dry: Before seasoning, make sure to pat the pork chops dry with paper towels. Removing excess moisture helps the herb mixture adhere better to the surface, resulting in a more flavorful crust.
  3. Season Generously: Don’t be shy with the salt and pepper. Season both sides of the pork chops generously to enhance their flavor.
  4. Use Fresh Herbs: While dried herbs work well in this recipe, using fresh herbs can elevate the flavor even more. If you have fresh parsley, thyme, or rosemary on hand, chop them finely and add them to the herb mixture.
  5. Let Them Marinate: For even more flavor, marinate the pork chops in the herb mixture for 30 minutes to an hour before cooking. This allows the flavors to penetrate the meat.
  6. Preheat the Air Fryer: Just like with an oven, preheating the air fryer ensures that the pork chops start cooking immediately, resulting in a crispier exterior.
  7. Don’t Overcrowd the Basket: Make sure the pork chops are arranged in a single layer in the air fryer basket, with some space between them. Overcrowding can prevent proper air circulation, resulting in uneven cooking.
  8. Flip Carefully: When flipping the pork chops halfway through cooking, use tongs to handle them gently. This helps prevent any coating from sticking to the basket and ensures both sides cook evenly.
  9. Check the Temperature: Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the pork chops. They should reach 145ยฐF (63ยฐC) for safe consumption. Avoid overcooking to prevent them from drying out.
  10. Let Them Rest: Allow the cooked pork chops to rest for a few minutes before serving. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, ensuring a juicy and tender bite.
