Next, preheat your air fryer for 5 minutes on 400 degrees. Place your pork chops into the air fryer, in one even layer and cook them for about 16-20 minutes - flipping halfway. I like my fried food a little more on the well done side than some folks so I cook mine about 20 minutes total. If you like yours more a golden brown, I’d aim for closer to 16. Just make sure you flip it halfway through!
