How to Make Air Fryer Pork Chops

Follow these steps for foolproof pork chops.

First, preheat your air fryer or Duo Crisp Air Fryer Lid to 360 degrees. 

Next, you want to prepare the coating dip for the pork chops. You want to combine the ground almonds and parmesan cheese on a plate. 

In a separate shallow dish or bowl, break the egg and whip it with a fork. 

Then take your pork chops. It might be helpful to pat them with a paper towel so they pick up the egg. Then dip them in the egg mixture one at a time. You want to move them around to be sure you cover all the surfaces with the egg. 

Then take the chop and put it directly in the almond parmesan mixture. Repeat until all four chops are prepped. 

Place the chops in the air fryer where they should cook to an internal temperature of 145 degrees. This should take about 14 minutes. Flip the chops halfway through their cooking. 

Once you remove the chops, be sure to let them rest for about 10 minutes, so you don’t lose all the juices. 


Take your whole almonds and drop them in your food processor to get the finely ground almonds that will adhere to the pork chop.
