Whole30 | Paleo Air Fried Pork Chops

Servings: 4 Servings


  • 4 Pork chops (I used boneless but you can also use bone-in)
  • 1 Egg
  • splash Water
  • 2 Cups Pork rind panko/bread crumbs


  • Mix the egg with a splash of water and a sprinkle of salt and pepper until combined. Then moisten the pork chops with the egg wash mixture on all sides, and then dredge the coated pork chops in the pork rind panko/bread crumbs making sure to thoroughly coat them. Set the dredged pork chops aside to rest for 15-20 minutes. This will keep the breading from falling off while it’s cooking. 
  • Next, preheat your air fryer for 5 minutes on 400 degrees. Place your pork chops into the air fryer, in one even layer and cook them for about 16-20 minutes - flipping halfway. I like my fried food a little more on the well done side than some folks so I cook mine about 20 minutes total. If you like yours more a golden brown, I’d aim for closer to 16. Just make sure you flip it halfway through! 
  • Once the pork chops are fried to your liking, season them to taste with salt (or chicharron salt) & pepper, if desired.
