Breaded pork chops are a really easy meal to make in the air fryer. They only take about 20 minutes from start to finish. This is one of the easiest dinners you can make in the air fryer, and it’s a popular dish with kids, just serve it alongside a dipping sauce.
The air fryer does a great job of keeping the outside light and crispy while keeping the juiciness of the pork chop. This is a really light breading made with panko bread crumbs and cornflakes and a few spices.
The secret to the crispiness of this dish is the egg. The egg really does a great job of coating the pork chops, before the breading.

How to Air Fry Breaded Pork Chops–
The simple truth about breading anything is that you need to set up your stations, usually a wet bowl and a dry bowl.
In today’s recipe, we set up two bowls, one with the beaten egg.
In the other bowl, we mixed a combination of panko bread crumbs, cornflake crumbs, sweet paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and chili powder.
The secret is to completely cover the pork chop with the egg mixture and then dredge it into the dry mix. I usually use my hands, and really make sure the pork chop is coated.
As you coat them, place them into the air fryer basket or tray, which needs to be sprayed with olive oil, prior to laying your pork chops in them.
The secret to crisping up any bread batter in the air fryer is to generously coat the entire bread product with olive oil. Without olive oil, your breading will never crisp up.
