It doesn’t matter what type of pot or brand you have, they all work basically the same. As opposed to making our baked pork chops you can make these year round since it won’t heat up your entire kitchen. Add as many seasonings you want or leave it plain like you see here.

Keep in mind that the timing is for medium to thick bone in pork chops. If you have boneless or they are rather thin you’ll want to decrease the timing a few minutes and check. You don’t want to overcook this protein but of course the internal meat temperature does need to be safe to consume.

Air Fryer Bone In Pork Chops

I typically buy with the bone just because they are a lot cheaper and not that hard to cut around when they are done. If I do find them on sale without, I of course will grab those instead. Thin isn’t the best if you ask me. I would rather have a medium/thick cut any day of the week.

Before you begin you should pat the meat with paper towels so the egg and breading will stick nicely. If not it will want to slide right off.

What temperature do you put the air fryer on for pork chops?

400 degrees F will do the trick to get it tender yet crispy on the outside. You could set it for a bit lower but that will make it take more time obviously to cook properly.

How long do I cook frozen pork chops in the Ninja Foodi?

We have directions on how to cook frozen pork chops in air fryer here you can read and follow. It doesn’t take too much longer than if they were defrosted. Of course size does matter and will vary the cook time slightly.

How do you get breading to stick to pork chops?

That is where the paper towels come in. Take them out of the package, rinse with cold water quickly. Then lay on a few, fold over the top and gently press so the moisture on the outside is absorbed. Then dip into whisked egg and finally into a breading. Lightly tap on so it sticks nicely, then cook.

This is what you’re going to need to make this quick and easy recipe tonight.

  1. Bone in chops – boneless pork chops will take a minute or two less
  2. 2 shallow bowls
  3. Breadcrumbs
  4. Salt and pepper with onion powder works great for seasonings but really you could add Old Bay or others that you love too
    1. shredded parmesan is a great add in too
  5. Eggs to make the egg wash or dip before breading so it sticks nicely
  6. Non stick cooking spray

I recommend that you always preheat the air fryer so the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees after 14 minutes. To add more golden brown lightly spray the tops 2 minutes before it is done.

Air Fried Pork

Here are quick instructions to read but there is a printable card at the bottom of this post as well.

Time needed: 14 minutes.

Breaded Pork Chops Air Fryer

  1. Prepare

    Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees F for 5 minutes. Whisk eggs in a shallow bowl. In another bowl add breadcrumbs with your salt, garlic powder, chili powder and parmesan cheese. Mix together.

    Pat pork chops dry with paper towels to remove moisture on the outsides. You can season pork chops with salt and pepper now too if you want added flavors. Dip into egg and then bread crumbs mixture. Coat both sides well.

    Spray basket with non stick spray. Lay inside air fryer basket or on metal rack inside Ninja foodi.

  2. Cook

    Spray tops with olive oil and then air fry for 7 minutes of cooking. Flip over and spray with olive oil on other side. Cook for an additional 7-10 minutes or until internal temp of thickest area of cooked pork chops reaches 145 degrees F.
    Remove and allow to rest, covered, for 10 minutes before slicing

You can tell that they’re done when there is no pink on the inside when you slice it open. It is important to allow proteins to rest when they are done. This will maintain a moist piece of meat so it doesn’t release as soon as you cut it open.

How do you reheat leftover pork chops?

Remove from the fridge and allow to sit for about 15 minutes so they’re not so cold first. It is great to use your Cosori to heat it the next day really. Then you can get that crunch back on the edges and warm the insides enough to enjoy. 380 F for about 2-3 minutes on each side will do the trick.

You could dice it up and add it into another dish too, like a casserole. Sometimes I will make my own version of fried rice on the stovetop with scrambled egg, heated frozen veggies, and chopped leftovers like this. I hate throwing away good food so this is one of my go to’s that everyone seems to love.
