We cooked the pork chops in a 3.4 qt. Air Fryer. For that size of air fryer, 3 pork chops is about the max without overcrowding the air fryer. If you have a larger size, you can probably cook 2-3 more so long as they are still in a single layer. Adjust cooking time for thicker or thinner pork chops. Some brands of Air Fryers will cook slower or faster than others, adjust accordingly.


  • 3 (6 oz.) pork chops , rinsed & patted dry
  • salt , to taste
  • black pepper , to taste
  • garlic powder , to taste
  • smoked paprika , to taste
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs , approximately
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped Italian parsley , plus more for optional garnish
  • 1 large egg
  • Cooking spray , for coating the pork chops
  • 1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup marinara sauce , heated


  1. Season the pork chops with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and smoked paprika.

  2. In medium bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, and chopped parsley. In another bowl, beat the egg.
  3. Dip each pork chop in egg and then dredge it in the breadcrumb mixture, coating completely. Lightly spray both sides of coated pork chops with cooking spray right before cooking.
  4. Preheat the Air Fryer at 380°F for 4 minutes.
  5. Place in the Air Fryer and cook at 380°F (194°C) for 8-12 minutes. After 6 minutes of cooking, flip the pork chops and then continue cooking for the remainder of time or until golden and internal temperature reaches 145-160°F.

  6. Top with cheese and air fry for 2 more minutes to melt the cheese. Serve warm with marinara sauce.
