Air frying pork chops

Title: Air-Fried Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops


  • 4 boneless pork chops
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • Cooking spray


  1. Preheat Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C) for about 5 minutes.
  2. Prepare Coating Mixture:
    • In a shallow dish, combine breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, paprika, salt, and black pepper. Mix well.
  3. Coat Pork Chops:
    • Dip each pork chop into the beaten eggs, ensuring it’s well-coated. Then, dredge the pork chop in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing the coating onto the pork to adhere.
  4. Spray with Cooking Spray:
    • Lightly spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray to prevent sticking.
  5. Air Fry Pork Chops:
    • Place the coated pork chops in the preheated air fryer basket in a single layer. Spray the tops of the pork chops with cooking spray.
  6. Air Fry First Side:
    • Air fry the pork chops at 400°F (200°C) for 10 minutes. Check after 5 minutes to ensure they are browning evenly.
  7. Flip and Air Fry Second Side:
    • Flip the pork chops and air fry for an additional 5-8 minutes or until they reach an internal temperature of 145°F (63°C) and have a golden-brown crust.
  8. Rest and Serve:
    • Allow the pork chops to rest for a couple of minutes before serving. This helps the juices redistribute.
  9. Optional: Garnish and Serve:
    • Garnish with additional Parmesan cheese and fresh herbs if desired. Serve the air-fried Parmesan crusted pork chops with your favorite sides.

  • Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Note: Air frying pork chops creates a crispy and flavorful crust while keeping the inside tender. Adjust the cooking time based on the thickness of your pork chops and the specific model of your air fryer. Enjoy this quick and delicious air-fried meal!
