  • Air fryer


  • 2 thick cut pork chops
  • ¼ cup Wondra flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce or more, to taste
  • ½ cup Panko bread crumbs
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper


  • Lay out 3 shallow dishes. In the first dish add the flour, salt and pepper. In the second dish, whisk together the egg and hot sauce. In the third dish, combine the Panko, Parmesan and Italian seasoning.
  • Pat the pork chops dry with a paper towel. Dip the pork chop into the flour and shake off the excess. Then dip into the egg wash mixture and shake off excess. Finally, dip into the Panko mixture and press on the pork chop to get the bread crumbs to adhere. Place the pork chops on a plate.
  • Set your air fryer to 385 degrees and allow it to pre-heat if instructed per manual. Once heated, place the pork chops into the air fryer and cook for 10-15 minutes, flipping over halfway through.
  • Pork should reach at least 145 degrees to be fully cooked. Optionally: before cooking, spritz pork chops with cooking spray to get a darker crisp on them.


Cooking times may vary depending on brand of air fryer and thickness of pork chop. The pork chops I used were about 1 inch thick. Make sure pork reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees.
