We cooked the pork chops in a 3.7 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.
Season the pork chops with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and smoked paprika. Place the breadcrumbs in a medium bowl. In another bowl, beat the egg.
Dip each pork chop in egg and then dredge it in the breadcrumbs, coating completely. Lightly spray both sides of coated pork chops with cooking spray right before cooking. Make sure to spray pork chops with oil well. Don't leave any un-oiled areas becuse those bread crumbs will cook white and dry and not crispy.
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. Serve warm.
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.
Preheating the Air Fryer is preferable. If you don’t preheat, add more time to the cooking.
Remember to set a timer to shake/flip/toss the food as directed in recipe.
