  • Air Fryer


  • 1-½ cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Season Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1-½ cups Italian Bread Crumbs
  • 4 Pork Chops
  • Olive Oil Spray


  • Preheat the Air Fryer at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 5 minutes.
  • While Air Fryer preheats, season the pork chops with a little salt, pepper, and garlic powder if desired.
  • Mix together the all purpose flour, garlic powder, onion powder, season salt, and black pepper. Mix and scramble eggs in a separate dish, and place a third dish next to the eggs with the Italian Bread Crumbs.
  • Spray Air Fryer wire racks (or basket) with olive oil.
  • Then place a pork chop in the flour mixture coating both sides. Next, place in the egg wash coating both sides and then dip and coat both sides in the bread crumb mixture.
  • Place the breaded pork chop on the wire rack (or basket) making sure to not crowd. Repeat until all the pork chops are coated. Spray the tops of the pork chops with olive oil spray.
  • Place the breaded pork chops in the Air Fryer and cook for 8 minutes. Flip and spray with olive oil spray and cook for an additional 5 minutes until golden and crispy and internal temperature reads at least 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy.


  • Air Fryer - Depending on the style Air Fryer you own will depend if you can cook all the pork chops at one time. I have a PowerXL Vortex which is more of an oven type that has multiple trays. This air fryer allows me to cook up to 6 pork chops at one time. I have also tested this recipe in the Instant™ Vortex™ 5.7-quart Air Fryer which is the basket style (and found that the pork chops turned out the best with that model, and tested in the Instant Omni™ Pro 18L Toaster Oven and Air Fryer. The results turned out the same as the PowerXL Vortext brand since they are both the oven styles.
  • Preheating - The "Instant" brand air fryer automatically preheats when you set the time and temperature. Where as the PowerXL Vortex does not automatically preheat and you will need to add on 5 additional minutes to the time to allow the oven to come to preheated temperature.
  • Spray Oil - The key to crispy air fried pork chops is using a spray oil. I like to use olive oil but you could also use avocado oil. Either one works fine!
  • Season - Always season the pork chops prior to breading. This ensures a flavorful chop!
This recipe has been tested multiple times using the PowerXL Vortex Air Fryer.
