Ingredients

Pork Chops:

  • 4-6 thin cut pork chops 2 lbs
  • ½ cup Italian bread crumbs
  • ½ cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 2 eggs
  • Spray oil

Chimichurri:

  • ¾ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup white wine vinegar
  • ½ cup parsley finely chopped
  • ½ cup cilantro finely chopped
  • 3 clove garlic pressed of finely minced
  • 1 jalapeño finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp dried oregano
  • 2 Tbsp red pepper finely minced
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch pepper

Instructions

  • Pork Chops:Rinse and dry pork chops and let sit at room temp for 30 minutes.
  • Spray your air-fryer tray with spray oil and set aside.
  • In medium saute pan add your oil and bread crumbs and Panko crumbs. Sauté until they are golden brown. Move them continuously as they will begin the brown quickly once they start. Remove from heat and let cool.
  • Once the crumb mixture is cooled place in a shallow dish good for dredging, like a pie plate. Mix in your flour, pepper and garlic powder to the crumbs until completely combined.
  • Whisk eggs in a shallow dish good for dredging, again like a pie plate 
  • Salt and pepper the pork chops.
  • Set up your ingredients like an assembly line. Moving from left to right, first the pork chops, second the egg wash, third the crumbs, fourth the air-fryer tray.
  • Working with one pork chop at a time, dip the pork chop into the egg wash. Coat both sides and make sure to wipe off any excess on the side of the dish.
  • Move to the crumbs and dredge the pork chop into the crumb mixture, flip and coat the other side.
  • Transfer to the air-fryer tray and spray with spray oil.
  • Repeat the process with as many pork chops as your air-fryer tray will hold.
  • Air-fry at 400 ºF for 8-10 minutes or until pork is done and the crumbs are a nice golden brown. Pork is done at 145 ºF internal temperature, so if you are not sure use a meat thermometer.
  • Serve with chimichurri if using.
  • Chimichurri:Place all ingredients into a medium bowl and stir to mix. Let mixture sit for at least 30 minutes to marinate all the flavors together.
  • Refrigerate any leftovers.
