These Air Fryer Lamb chops are the easiest and fastest way to juicy, tender and the best tasting lamb chop!  Brushed with a mustard lemon and herb sauce that makes this one of the best air fryer recipes yet (skillet option too!)

Prep Time 5 minutes

Cook Time 15 minutes

Total Time 20 minutes

Yield: 4 (2 loin chops each)


  • 8 loin lamb chops 1 1/4″ wide
  • 2 Tablespoons mustard, dijon or whole grain
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon tarragon, (any dried herb of your choice)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • salt and pepper


  1. Turn on air fryer to 390° to preheat.
  2. Into a small bowl place mustard, olive oil, tarragon and lemon juice and mix well.  
  3. Rinse and pat dry lamb chops with a paper towel.
  4. Brush mustard herb mixture over all sides of the lamb chops. 
  5. Place lamb chops into basket with some room in between.  You can do them in batches and keep on a plate covered with plastic wrap until all are finished.  Alternatively, you can place in a 225° oven to keep warm.
  6. Cook for 15 minutes for medium rare (turning at 8 minutes.)  You do not have to turn them, but I like the even color it gets by moving them around.  
  7. You can use a thermometer to test for doneness.  The width of the chop used can alter the cooking times.  If you do not have a thermometer, I use a knife to cut into one to test.
  8.  Lamb Doneness temperatures:
  9. 125 Rare
  10. 145 Medium Rare
  11. 155 Medium
