INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
  • 2 ½ teaspoons paprika (sweet or smoked*)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 boneless pork chops (1-inch thick, or bone-in pork chops)
  • 1 ½ tablespoons olive oil

INSTRUCTIONS :

  • In a small bowl, stir together the brown sugar, paprika, garlic powder, thyme, salt, onion powder and black pepper.
  • Preheat air fryer at 400° F for 5 minutes.
  • Pat the pork chops dry. Rub both sides with the olive oil. Rub the seasoning mix over all sides of the pork chops.
  • Place pork chops in a single layer in the air fryer (cook in two batches if needed).
  • To cook boneless pork chops: Air fry at 400° F for 5 minutes. Then flip the pork chops over and continue to cook for 3-7 more minutes, until the internal temperature of the center of the pork chops is 145° F.
  • To cook bone-in pork chops: Air fry at 400° F for 5 minutes. Then flip the pork chops over and continue to cook for 6-10 more minutes, until the internal temperature of the center of the pork chops is 145° F.
  • Let pork chops rest for 5 minutes and then serve.

NOTES

  • Recipe can be halved to cook 2 pork chops.
  • I used sweet paprika. Smoked paprika will lend a smoky, slightly spicy flavor.
  • Thick cut (at least 1-inch thick) pork chops are best, since thin pork chops tend to dry out more easily.
  • The cook time will depend on the thickness of the pork chops and whether they are boneless or bone-in. To tell if they are done, use an instant read thermometer to check if the center has reached at least 145 degrees F.
