- boneless pork chops, ½ inch in thickness- or bone-in
- Dijon mustard
- original pork packet shake and bake- or use homemade recipe
Ingredients for homemade shake and bake breading mix:
- Italian seasoned breadcrumbs- like Progresso breadcrumbs
- kosher salt
- garlic powder
- ground black pepper
To make air fryer shake and bake pork chops, begin by removing pork chops from packaging and place them on a cutting board. Pat them dry with paper towels.
Lightly coat pork chops with Dijon mustard on both sides.
Pour store bought packet mixture or homemade version of breading into a storage resealable bag. Then place them in the storage bag with breadcrumb mixture. Seal the bag and shake them in the mixture, until they are fully coated.
Lightly spray olive oil onto the air fryer basket or line with air fryer perforated parchment sheet. Then in a single layer, place coated pork chops in basket, without overlapping.
Set your air fryer to 400 degrees F and cook for 8-10 minutes, turning chops halfway through the cooking process. Depending on the thickness, cooking time will vary 1-3 minutes. Use a meat thermometer like the one in the link, to check the internal temperature of meat reaches 145 degrees F.
I make this dish in my Cosori 5.8 qt. air fryer. Depending on your air fryer size and wattage cook time may need to be adjusted 1-2 minutes.
This will be a perfect summer meal with a side of potato salad. It will be yummy with a crisp salad with a slice (or two) of garlic cheese bread or caramelized brussels sprouts and mushroom rice pilaf. Butternut squash and green beans will also be delightful.
Store these delicious pork chops in an airtight container or storage bag after they are fully cooled in your refrigerator for 3-4 days. Follow the same process for freezing them and store for 3 months. Thaw out in your refrigerator overnight before cooking.
Besides shake and bake seasonings, you can use Italian breadcrumbs, panko bread crumbs and ground pork rinds make a crispier crust. You can also use a nut mixture or plain bread crumbs.
