Mediterranean AirFryer Lamb Chops Recipe

This air fryer lamb chops recipe is not only easy to prep, but flavorful and nutritious too! It’s Mediterranean-styled and packed with flavor and healthy ingredients. Combined with the natural savory taste and juiciness of the meat, this recipe is sure to impress any dinner guest!

Is Lamb Healthy?

While it might seem daunting to cook with, it really isn’t any harder to prepare than any other meat. It comes with some real health benefits too! It is high in protein and has several vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B12 and iron. When compared with other common sources of protein, it’s an obvious winner. It has more omega-3 fatty acids than beef, which are vital nutrients and a great energy source. It’s also richer in some vitamins, such as vitamin B, than chicken. The key is in moderation, but lamb is a great and nutritious meat to add to your diet. And with air fryer lamb chops, you can reduce the amount of oil needed to prepare them!

Tips for a successful dish

Don’t skip the rest time. Cutting into the chops right away will let all of that flavorful juice leak out. If you want your meat to remain juicy and tender, be sure to wait the full 5 minutes before slicing.

Try forking before marinating. Forking small holes into each chop before marinating helps it to absorb the sauce. This is particularly useful for recipes with a shorter marinade time.

Don’t reuse the marinade. You just had raw meat in it! Rather than saving your leftover marinade for a sauce, just make a whole new batch so you don’t risk contamination

So what is an air fryer? It doesn’t actually fry your food. Really, it’s a countertop convection oven. Air fryers are great for cooking food quickly and getting that fried texture by using only a small amount of oil. These appliances come in different styles and sizes. What you see here in the picture is a 5.8-quart fryer that can easily fit 1.5 lbs of meat.

How long does it take to cook lamb chops in the air fryer?

This dish is ready in under 15 minutes, much faster than it would take in a conventional oven. Remember to flip each chop halfway through.

Can I marinate for longer than the recipe calls for?

Despite what you may think, marinating too long reverses those tender, juicy results and actually makes meat tougher! For this recipe, I wouldn’t recommend marinating longer than 24 hours.
