Can I swap boneless pork chops for bone-in pork chops?

You sure can! To swap out the kind of chops you’re using you can generally swap them straight across with a few considerations.

Boneless chops are leaner and need to be quickly cooked. So always cook them just until they’re done. Done for pork chops or loins is now 145° for rare and 155° for medium. Use a digital thermometer and remove it when it hits 5 degrees below the temperature listed. It will rise 5-10 degrees after it comes out of the air fryer. If you overcook your chops they will be tough so resist the urge!

Bone-in chops are a lot easier to cook because they don’t typically get tough because there’s more fat on the chop. BUT they are also bigger and juicer and they can make things weird in a recipe.

They can need more seasonings if you’re swapping them straight across in recipes. And because they’re bigger they may need more breading if you’re using that kind of recipe. Generally, just use your best judgment in those cases, perhaps using half again as many spices or breading ingredients.

Bone-in chops also take longer to cook because of the bone. You need to check for doneness next to the bone because that’s where you’re going to have underdone pork.
