Ingredients: A Flavorful Combination

The onion, celery, and cranberries are optional, but they add a lovely textural element to the stuffing that I highly recommend. If desired, you can serve the gravy on the side for everyone to add to their own plate.

How To Make Air Fryer Stuffed Pork Chops: Simple Steps

Making these delicious stuffed pork chops is a breeze with the help of your air fryer. All you need is a sharp knife, a large bowl, a silicone spatula, and, of course, your air fryer.

  1. Prep. Preheat your air fryer to 380°F (193°C). Meanwhile, microwave 1 ½ cups of chicken broth for 2+ minutes until boiling.
  2. Make Stuffing. In a large mixing bowl, combine 6 ounces of Stove Top stuffing mix with 2 cups of hot chicken broth, 2 tablespoons of butter, and ½ cup of milk. Mix well, and add optional ingredients if desired.
  3. Butterfly pork chops. Trim any excess fat from the pork chops and cut them ¾ of the way through the thickest part, creating a pocket for the stuffing.
  4. Season. Sprinkle salt, pepper, and onion powder on both sides of each pork chop.
  5. Stuff. Fill each pork chop with approximately ½ a cup of stuffing and transfer them to the air fryer basket.
  6. Air Fry. Cook the stuffed pork chops at 380°F (193°C) for 12-15 minutes or until they reach an internal temperature of 145°F (63°C). Let them rest for 5 minutes before serving. Top with gravy if desired.

I recommend serving these delectable air fryer stuffed pork chops with some quick microwaved cauliflower and broccoli. For more ideas on what to serve with pork chops, check out our website.

To reheat, you can either bake the stuffed pork chops in a dish or pan with a splash of broth at 350°F (180°C) for 10-15 minutes or until they reach an internal temperature of 145°F (63°C). Alternatively, you can return them to your preheated air fryer and heat at 350°F (175°C) for 6-8 minutes or until heated through.
