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.)(3(170g))pork chops, rinsed & patted dry
salt, to taste
black pepper, to taste
garlic powder, to taste
smoked paprika, to taste
1/2cup(50g)grated parmesan cheese
2Tablespoons(29.57ml)chopped Italian parsley, plus more for optional garnish
Season the pork chops with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and smoked paprika.
In medium bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, and chopped parsley. In another bowl, beat the egg.
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.
Preheat the Air Fryer at 380°F for 4 minutes.
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.
Top with cheese and air fry for 2 more minutes to melt the cheese. Serve warm with marinara sauce.
Recipes were cooked in 3-4 qt air fryers. If using a larger air fryer, the recipe might cook quicker so adjust cooking time.
If cooking in multiple batches & not pre-heating before first batch , the first batch will take longer to cook.
Remember to set a timer to shake/flip/toss the food as directed in recipe.
Preheating the Air Fryer is preferable. If you don’t preheat, add more time to the cooking.
