Units Scale

Parmesan Crumbed Fried Pork Chops

  • 2 large thick sliced pork chops
  • A pinch of coarse salt (per side)
  • A pinch of freshly ground black pepper (per side)



  • ± 2 cups finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • ± 1 cup Panko Bread Crumbs
  • 23 tsp Italian seasoning mix


  1. Wash and spice the pork chops on both sides with salt and pepper as desired.
  2. Add to Air Fryer (Besile 7.0QT Large Hot Air Fryer) and bake at 370F/187C for 20 minutes but flip the meat over after 10 minutes.
  3. Continue to bake and complete the 20 minutes.
  4. In the meantime, prepare the crust by mixing the parmesan, Panko, and seasoning mix in a deep dish.  You can use whatever quantities you like, but I used a 1:2 ratio of crumbs to cheese.  The seasoning you can also adjust to taste.
  5. Check out Baking Conversion Charts for Cooking and Baking
  6. After 20 minutes in the AF at 370F pull the tray out, use roughly ¼ of the mix per chop, and press it on the cooked meat while still in the AF.

  7. No need to take it out, just add the mixture and press it firmly down on the half-cooked meat.
  8. Return to the AF, now at 400F/200C, and continue to bake for 10 minutes (per side) until you have a nice brown color.
  9. Flip the meat over, cover the other side with the rest of the crumbs, and continue to bake for 10 more minutes.

  10. I use Silicone Air Fryer Liners (much easier to clean the AF) but feel free to do it directly on the AF rack. 
  11. Serve once ready and done to your liking.
