Ingredients and Variations

Pork Chops – The best choice for these pork chops is a boneless cut of meat. If there is a bone, then cut it out. If using frozen chops, increase the cooking time accordingly. Choose thin cuts of meat, or if the cuts are thick, pound them with a meat mallet to the desired thinness.

Coating – Any breadcrumb coating will work, however Panko becomes deliciously crispy in the Air Fryer. For a keto (and gluten-free) version use almond flour, instead of flour, and substitute with a gluten-free bread crumb coating. Add extra seasonings like Italian, or southwest seasoning for extra flavor.
