  • 4 Australian lamb chops
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp fresh basil
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • ½ tsp ground pepper
  • ½ tsp salt
  • fresh thyme, for garnish


  • First, add all ingredients except fresh thyme to large Ziplock bag. Shake bag until lamb chops are completely coated in olive oil and seasonings.
  • At this point, either preheat air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit to immediately air fry OR place Ziplock bag in fridge for up to 24 hours to marinate.
  • Once air fryer has preheated, arrange lamb chops in air fryer basket or on air fryer pan.
  • Air fry for 7 to 10 minutes. After 7 minutes, use meat thermometer to check internal temperature of meat and add more air frying time if needed.
  • Finally, once meat has reached desired temperature, remove from air fryer.
  • Allow meat to rest for 5 minutes before serving and slicing into.
  • Garnish with fresh thyme if desired.


  • I used Australian lamb loin chops with bone in.  They were about 1 inch thick.
  • Either air fry immediately after coating lamb chops in oil and herbs or marinate for up to 24 hours.
  • Depending on thickness of lamb chops and air fryer brand, cooking time may need to be added.
  • Use a meat thermometer to determine how cooked the lamb is.
  • Lamb chops are rare at 120°F, they are medium rare at 125°F, medium at 130°F, and well done at 145°F or higher. 
  • Allow lamb to rest after air frying to lock in the flavors and juices.
  • As pictured, they are served over Whole30 Mashed Potatoes and garnished with fresh thyme.
  • Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 4 days.
