Storage And Reheating
Pork chops and potatoes can be stored in the fridge for up to four days. To reheat, place them back in the air fryer for a few minutes until heated. You can also reheat in the oven or microwave, but the air fryer will give you the best results.
If cooking from frozen, cook according to the air fryer’s instructions as if they were fresh. Start by turning on the air fryer to 400°F. Season both sides of the pork chop with salt and pepper before placing it in an oiled baking dish, ideally one that has a non-stick surface (or use parchment paper).
Place potatoes around it in the same manner as you would when frying. Place about one tablespoon of olive oil in a shallow bowl and brush it over both sides of each potato slice before transferring them to an oiled baking dish.
Once everything is ready, cover the potatoes with aluminium foil and bake at 425°F for 15 minutes. Remove the foil and continue to bake uncovered for another 5-10 minutes until crispy on top. When cooking, transfer potatoes to a plate and cover them with foil while resting, so they stay warm and crisp.
Cook the pork chops according to the manufacturer’s instructions: 10 minutes at 400°F, then ten more at 350°F should do it.
In conclusion, air frying is a healthier alternative to deep-frying. It uses less oil, and the food still comes out crispy. This recipe is easy to follow and only takes a few minutes to cook. So if you’re looking for a quick and healthy meal, give air frying a try!
