Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 lbs. of Organic lamb chops (12 small lamb chops)
  • 4 tablespoons of Homemade cilantro lime marinade (see my recipe – it’s quick and easy!) or any marinade of choice 
  • ½ teaspoon of Onion powder 
  • ½ teaspoon of garlic powder 
  • ½ teaspoon of Knorr bouillon 
  • ½ of salt (always add salt to your preference) 
  • ¼ teaspoon of black pepper 

Instructions

  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. Cook. Place cilantro lime marinated lamb chops in the preheated air fryer; air fry for 6 minutes and flip. Then air fry for 4 minutes. If not done, continue to cook to the set time.

  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.

Notes

  • I bought my organic lamb chops frozen from our local farmer. They’re a little smaller than regular lamb chops, so do keep in mind the size of yours as you cook them. Bigger lamb chops will affect the cooking time slightly. 
  • These easy marinated lamb chops are amazing for weeknights because they are so quick and simple to make.
  • But they’re also fantastic for the main dish of a holiday dinner. Think Thanksgiving, Christmas, or even Easter.
  • I like serving these on the weekends to make things extra special, even though they’re easy enough to do any day of the week.
  • This is my air fryer; I love it. Been using it for two years!
