Are you tired of overcooked pork chops? Then you need to try air fryer pork chops. These air fryer pork chops are excellent for a wonderful dinner any day of the week, thanks to a few basic ingredients and only 12 minutes of cooking time. I will show you how to prepare this amazing and delicious delicacy.
Air Fryer Pork Chops
I’ve discovered that thick, center-cut, bone-in pork chops work best in the air fryer. I aim to make them as thick as possible, between 12 and 2 inches thick.
The reason I choose thick chops is because the cooking time required results in a gorgeous sear on all sides of the pork chops.
Thin pork chops will cook too rapidly and never develop a good char. Cooking time for thick pork chops is roughly 12 minutes.
1. Pork Chops: I recommend using center-cut boneless pork chops. They should be about 3/4-inch thick
2. Breading: Panko breadcrumbs,1 large egg, grated Parmesan cheese, and crushed cornflakes crumbs.
Seasoning: kosher salt, sweet paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, chili powder.
How to Make Pork Chops in an Air Fryer
This simple air fryer boneless pork chop recipe cooks significantly faster than it would in the oven.
1. You begin by seasoning the pork chops with salt and pepper.
2. Dip them in egg wash, allowing the excess to fall off.
3. Then dip the pork chops into the breadcrumbs, coating the top, bottom, and sides.
4. Spritz oil on both sides
5. Air fry at 400F in a single layer, in batches as needed, for 12 minutes, flipping halfway, or until an instant-read meat thermometer reads 145F degrees.
How to Make Breading to Stick to Pork Chops?
To make the breading to attach to the pork chops, I use egg, but if you’re allergic to eggs or prefer something else, olive oil, mayo, or Dijon mustard might work.
After dipping the pork chops in the egg, you will need to place them on the breadcrumbs and press them in well. This will shake off any excess. Place aside and repeat
Tips for Air Fryer Pork Chop
Take note of these tips whenever you are making air fryer pork chops:
1. Always flip the chops halfway through cooking while air frying.
2. Don’t overcrowd the basket; you need airflow to crisp them up. If necessary, cook in batches.
3. If you’re allergic to eggs or prefer something different, olive oil or Dijon mustard would work.
4. Cornflake Crumbs are offered in the same aisle as breadcrumbs. You can buy cornflakes and crush them yourself if you don’t have any.
5. If the pork chops are frozen, defrost them overnight in the refrigerator before putting them in the air fryer.
6. You can keep leftovers refrigerated for up to four days.
1. Bone-in Pork Chops: If you’d like, you can use thinner boneless chops or bone-in chops. You need to check them every few minutes. You do this to make sure you don’t overcook them because the cooking time varies.
2. Gluten-free: To prepare these gluten-free breaded pork chops, use gluten-free corn flakes like Nature’s Path.
3. Without Cornflake Crumbs: If you don’t have or don’t want to buy cornflakes, omit them and increase the panko by half. As an alternative, you could pick up one of those tiny cornflakes single-serve boxes.
