Making pork chops in Ninja Foodi is super easy. First, season your pork chops on both sides and place them in the basket. Set your Ninja Foodi to the air fryer setting and preheat to 370 degrees F. 

How long to cook pork chops in Ninja Foodi will vary depending on the size of the pork chops you choose.

Boneless chops that are an inch thick take 8-10 minutes, while thicker pork chops need slightly more time.

What Temperature Should Pork Chops Be Cooked To?

The safe Ninja Foodi pork chops temperature is a minimum of 145 degrees F. This is always true, no matter what size chop you choose. 

For example, a thicker, bone-in pork chop can be used in this recipe instead. The amount of time it needs to cook will vary, but the internal temperature should still reach a minimum of 145 degrees F.

What Do I Do With Leftover Ninja Foodi Pork Chops?

Store your leftover pork chops in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 4 days.

There are plenty of ways to use your leftover pork chops too. I like to thinly slice the leftovers to toss on a salad.

You can also chop up the meat to use in a quesadilla, a sandwich wrap, or maybe even fried rice. Get creative and have fun!
