Breaded Air Fryer Pork Chops are moist and cook up crisp in the Air Fryer without the added fat of traditional Southern Fried Pork Chops.
Cooking the pork chops in the Air Fryer is quick and easy that a whole meal can be on the table in under 30-minutes. For a low carb option, we served these chops with cauliflower “rice”, steamed green beans, and a side salad of cucumbers and tomatoes dressed in a lite vinaigrette.
