  1. Plan on trying this, however, from what I’ve been reading, pork chops should be cooked to 145 degrees. If cooked to 165 degrees won’t they be dried and tough? I am using 1 1/2″ thick boneless pork chops. Thanks for your response.

    1. Hi Sandi,
      You can cook pork from 145-160, you’re welcome to enjoy them any way you’d like. Thanks for checking out the recipe.

  2. I add the seasonings & spray the pork chops & air fry in my Ninja xl Air Fryer Oven but I can’t get them to brown in the middle. I never had this problem with 2 other brand air fryers. Any ideas?

    1. Maybe you could use the top rack so they get more air, or broil them for a minute or two at the end if they aren’t brown enough. I haven’t experienced that problem with mine but that’s what I would try. Thanks for the question!
