Air Fried Pork Chops Recipe
Follow these simple steps to create the most delicious air fryer pork chops:
- In a bowl, combine panko, Parmesan cheese, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs.
- Dip the pork chops first in the beaten eggs, coating them completely. Then, dip them in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing down to ensure the crumbs stick. Coat both sides and shake off any excess.
- Preheat the air fryer to 400°F. Once preheated, spray both sides of the pork chops with cooking spray and place them in the air fryer basket.
- Cook for 5 minutes, then flip and cook for another 4-6 minutes until the pork chops are beautifully browned and crispy. Use a meat thermometer to ensure the internal temperature reaches 140°F.
- Let the pork chops rest for 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

Can You Put Frozen Pork Chops in an Air Fryer?
Yes, you can! If you’re in a hurry, you can cook thin, boneless pork chops from frozen in the air fryer. Start by cooking them for 4 minutes at 380°F to defrost them. Add an extra minute if needed or if your chops are 1-inch thick. Thicker pork chops may require more defrosting time. Once defrosted, coat them in seasoning and breadcrumbs, and follow the recipe instructions, cooking for another 5 minutes before flipping, and then 4-6 more minutes. Use a meat thermometer to ensure the internal temperature reaches 140°F.
The air fryer method guarantees the juiciest pork chops you’ll ever make. The heat in the air fryer keeps the outside crust crispy while the inside remains succulent and flavorful!
