  • Start off by grating 2/3 cup of parmesan cheese into a large bowl. Then add 2/3 cup panko style bread crumbs, 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika, 1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper.
  • Give it a thorough mix and set it aside.
  • Now in a separate bowl. Add 2 large eggs along with 1 grated garlic clove. Grab a whisk and whisk the eggs for about 1 minute.
  • Pat the pork dry and dip it into the egg coating. Make sure the entire chop is covered.
  • Then let the extra egg drip off and quickly place it into the panko-Parmesan mixture. Coat the top, bottom, and sides of each pork chop in the breading.
  • Now, preheat your basket air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Once it’s preheated, spread the bottom of the air fryer basket with nonstick spray and place 2 pork chops in at a time. Spray the top of the pork chops and cook for about 10 minutes.
  • Flip the pork chops over and cook for another 8-10 minutes.  cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of your pork chops. Always check the internal temperature of the meat with a meat thermometer to ensure that it’s properly cooked. Fully cooked pork chops should read at least 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Now serve it over your favorite gravy and enjoy!



  • Preheat the air fryer- Always preheat your air fryer so it is at the optimum temperature for cooking and air flow, ensuring that your food is perfectly crispy and cooks evenly.
  • Don't overfill the air fryer basket- If there isn't adequate air flow, then the pork won't cook evenly or fully. Only place 2 chops in at a time and keep them from touching.
  • Use a meat thermometer- Pork chops are done when their internal temperature reaches 145 degrees Fahrenheit. Use a meat thermometer to check.
  • Use a good quality air fryer- We've tested multiple air fryers and found that the Gormia air fryer is one of the best. It's affordable and strong enough to cook meat for optimal crispness.
