AIR FRYER BREADED PORK CHOPS
We all grew up eating breaded pork chops. My mother made these at least once a week in the oven while I was growing up. Today, I am showing you how to make Air Fryer Breaded Pork Chops.
Today, we have air fryers; they do so well with making breaded pork chops. Today I wanted to take a few minutes and give you some tips on making the perfect breaded pork chops in the air fryer.
WHAT DO YOU SERVE WITH PORK CHOPS?
I usually serve them with some applesauce. I am old, but I am sure a few of you remember the old saying, pork chops, and applesauce.
However, there are so many other things that you can make with this dish that pairs perfectly with it! Like green beans (insert link), roasted carrots (insert link), or my mashed potatoes.
TIPS FOR MAKING AIR FRYER BREADED PORK CHOPS–
- Choose a pork chop that is between 1 inch and 1.5 inches thick. If the pork chop is too thin, it will dry out in the air fryer.
- I prefer pork chops with a bone in the air fryer since the bone tends to give you more flavor as you air fry them.
- Season your pork chops with a quick salt and pepper before you season them.
- Take your pork chops out and let them get room temperature for about 30 minutes before breading them.
- After you air fry them, let them rest again for about 5-8 minutes, just to let the juices go to the middle.
Today, I am bringing you some Air Fryer Pork Chops, one of the easiest and best recipes that I ever found, and done with my air fryer. My son Jason thought they were so juicy and delicious; he decided they were actually chicken. Because “they weren’t dried out like pork.”
I started by making my own Shake and Bake, which is incredibly easy and pairs well with this meal. If you have 3 minutes and want a great and easy meal, I would recommend making that instead of buying it from the store.
What Are The Best Chops For The Air Fryer?
Thicker ones do better in the air fryer than thinner ones. So, I usually opt for a pork chop that is between 1 inch to 2 inches thick. I find out that they do not dry out as much as the thinner ones.
The actual time for your chops in the air fryer will really depend on how thick they are and what air fryer you own.
So, grab your trusty meat thermometer, and make sure the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F.
