How to Air Fry Lamb Chops (Step-by-Step):

Now let me walk you through how to make these succulent air fryer lamb chops!

  1. Wash

    The first step is washing your lamb chops. You’ll want to completely pat them dry with paper towels. I used frozen lamb chops, which will work just as well. However, you need to give them time to thaw out and come to room temperature first, so plan ahead!Raw lamb chops

  2. Marinate

    Next, put your lamb chops in a big bowl. Pour the seasoning and marinade on and mix with your hands to cover the lamb chops well. I like using cooking gloves for this step to keep from getting messy. Once the lamb chops are completely well-coated, cover the bowl and let them marinate. I recommend at least 30 minutes though I always go for about an hour. You can also let them marinate overnight. Marinated raw lamb chops

  3. Preheat

    When you’re ready to get cooking, set your air fryer timer to 12 minutes and the temperature to 400F, then preheat. 

  4. Air Fry Marinated Lamb Chops

    Place cilantro lime marinated lamb chops in the preheated air fryer; air fry for 6 minutes and flip. Then air fry for 4 minutes.

  5. Check for Doneness

    Lamb chops can be cooked to a variety of levels of doneness. For me personally, I like them well done. A meat thermometer is essential here to help you ensure you’ve cooked them properly. If you like them rare, it should read 120°F; medium rare at 125°F; medium at 130°F; and well done at 145°F and higher. Allow them to cool for at least 5 minutes before serving.These easy and tasty lamb chops in the air fryer are tender and juicy with slightly crispy edges.

  • But they’re also fantastic for the main dish of a holiday dinner. Think Thanksgiving, Christmas, or even Easter.

Air Fryer Lamb Chops FAQs

If you have any questions about air frying lamb chops, these answers should steer you in the right direction!

Can You Cook a Lamb Chop In An Air Fryer?

Oh yes, you can! And I recommend this method wholeheartedly. You get an excellent exterior that’s a little crispy while the interior lends juicy, flavorful meat. And it cooks so quickly too. 

How Long Can You Marinate The Lamb? 

I typically like to marinate for an hour. If you’re pressed for time, you can marinate for at least 30 minutes. And if you like planning, you can even marinate these overnight, but I wouldn’t go longer than 24 hours.

What Temperature Should You Cook Lamb Chops At?

For perfectly cooked air fryer lamb chops, you should set the temperature to 400F. If you choose to do it in your oven, this would also be the temperature I’d recommend. 

How Do You Know When Your Lamb Chops Are Cooked Enough?

You need a meat thermometer to know for sure. At a minimum, it should read 120F if you like them rare. Well done, would read at 145F, though you don’t want to go much over that, or you’ll wind up with dry lamb chops.
