How to Cook Pork Chops in Air Fryer
It’s incredibly easy!
Begin by placing panko crumbs in a shallow dish with the olive oil. Microwave for 1-2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds until it reaches a golden brown.
Allow it to cool and then add the grated Parmesan cheese. Stir to mix.
In another shallow dish, scramble 1-2 eggs. Begin dipping pork chops in the egg and shake off any excess.
Then coat each pork chop with panko-Parmesan mixture. Press panko into the pork chop to ensure it sticks.
Lightly spray the air fryer basket with oil using a non-aerosol oil spray bottle. Place the breaded pork chops inside the basket.
Set the air fryer timer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and the timer to 6 minutes.
Flip the pork chops and if you notice they are looking dry, lightly spray with additional oil, then set the timer for another 6 minutes.
How do you know when a pork chop is done?
