Our Air Fryer is our go to when we are craving fried foods. Traditional frying has become a thing of the past (except when making things with loose batter). The internet has let me know that you all love your Air Fryers too which is awesome. I’ll keep the Air Fryer recipes coming 🙂
I find that the Air Fryer is perfect for cooking all kinds of meat, especially pork. If you haven’t tried my Air Fried Jamaican Jerk Pork Recipe, you should, it’s amazing! These air fried pork chops are just as amazing and about as easy to make in your air fryer.
I made this recipe with a traditional Japanese pork tonkatsu recipe in mind. Japanese Tonkatsu is thinly sliced pork (cutlet or chops) that is breaded in flour, egg, and panko and fried to perfection.
You can adapt this recipe and use any flavor breadcrumbs you like but I highly suggest using panko. I use seasoned Japanese panko breadcrumbs.
HOW TO MAKE AIR FRYER BONELESS PORK CHOPS?
You’ll want to get a working station set up with flour, beaten eggs, and flavored panko breadcrumbs. Make sure your pork chops are dry and coat both sides in the flour, then the egg, and the panko breadcrumbs. Place in your Air Fryer to cook.
WHAT IS THE BEST TEMPERATURE TO COOK MY AIR FRYER BONELESS PORK CHOPS?
For the best results, I recommend air frying the pork chops at 360 degrees Fahrenheit, rather than a higher heat. Cooking the pork chops at 360 allows the pork chops to get nice and crisp on the outside without drying out the meat.
OIL OR NO OIL, THAT IS THE QUESTION?
For this recipe, when using thinly sliced pork chops, I don’t spray the chops. I do spray the basket to avoid sticking as I don’t want to lose any breading when I flip.
You may wonder what determines if meat needs to be sprayed or not. For the most part, it will depend on the type of breading, how long you cook, your Air fryer brand, and the amount of natural oils the food releases. I mention this briefly in my 10 Tips Every Air Fryer Owner Should Know post.
And that’s it. These pork chops are so easy and so flavorful and healthy since they are made in the air fryer. As always, enjoy 🙂
