Why I love these boneless pork chops in air fryer
If you have never used an air fryer before, you are in for a surprise. Air fryers are a great way to cook things quicker and in a healthier manner. They make cooking fried or crispy food healthier since they use a lot less oil than traditional frying methods. The heat of the air fryer helps the food to crisp up and taste delicious. Plus, you get a lot less oil splatter and clean up which is always good!
These air fryer chops are crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside, and seasoned perfectly. This one of my favorite air fryer recipes and one of tricks to making amazing pork chops.. They're a breeze to make in the air fryer with a fraction of the cleanup.
- Boneless Pork Chops - thick cut

How to make air fryer pork chops
Combine breadcrumbs and garlic herb seasoning on a large plate.
Break one egg and beat it. Dip the pork chop into the beaten egg, turning to coat both sides of the pork chop.
Dip the pork chop in bread crumbs, completely covering the pork chop.
Repeat by dipping the pork chop in the egg and bread crumbs again.
Place the pork chops on the air fryer rack or air fryer basket and spray the pork chops with cooking spray.
Air fry at 375 degrees f for 25 minutes.
Then flip the pork chops and air fry for an additional 5 minutes. Check with a meat thermometer to make sure the internal temperature is 145 degrees.

While you can cook frozen pork chops in the air fryer. Here is a great frozen pork chop recipe from The Typical Mom. The recipe I am sharing today however should only be made with defrosted pork chops because of the breading.
No. If you do so, they will not cook evenly. The air circulating around the food is what helps it cook when air frying. So be sure to place them in a single layer. If you have more than will fit in your air fryer, you can cook them in batches.
