Cooking breaded pork chops in the Air Fryer is a much healthier alternative to frying pork chops in a skillet.
The Air Fryer has a powerful fan that circulates the hot air around your food to fry it without a lot of extra oil.
In this recipe, we’re adding some ranch flavoring to really take our breaded pork chops to the next level.
I’m sharing all the keys to success to make these pork chops the best ever.

🔑 Key to Success #1 – Choose Thin-cut Chops
For this Air Fryer recipe, you’ll want to choose thin-cut pork chops.
You can certainly cook thicker pork chops in the Air Fryer!
But this recipe’s cooking time and temperature are for thin-cut pork chops.
If you are using larger or thicker pork chops, you’ll need to increase the cooking time by maybe as much as 10 additional minutes.
The National Pork Board recommends that you cook pork until it reaches an internal temperature between 145 degrees F (medium rare) and 160 degrees F (medium) for best results.
🔑 Key to Success #2 – Add Some Flavor
Pork is a great meat to use when you want to add a lot of flavor to your meal. It can be adapted to just about any flavor combination.
I used a packet of dry Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix to add flavor.
You could also do herb seasoning or any of the Mrs Dash Seasoning Blends would be delicious.
Just add your favorite seasoning to the breadcrumbs and you’re ready to get dipping.
🔑 Key to Success #3 – Dip Chops in Bread Crumb Coating
After you season the pork chops, dip them in a mixture of egg and milk then into the bread crumb and seasoning mixture.
The egg will help the crumb coating stick to the pork chops.
Be sure to really press the chops into the bread crumbs to make sure they stick well.
You don’t want to end up with some spots that are not coated well.
It made a great quick weeknight meal.
