How to Make Potato Chip Crusted Air Fryer Pork Chops

 

These pork chops are really quick and easy to make! 

Getting them ready to go into the air fryer takes just 3 easy steps! 

First, dredge them in flour mixed with a little bit of salt.

Next, dip them into a whisked egg.

Lastly, coat them in a mixture of bread crumbs and crushed up potato chips. Make sure they are fully coated for best results! 

Now they are ready for the air fryer! They fry at 375°F for about 12 minutes. The time may vary slightly depending on the thickness of your pork chops. I recommend using boneless pork chops that are no more than 1/2 inch thick so they cook through on the inside without overcooking the potato chip coating on the outside! 

That’s it! These pork chops are best enjoyed straight out of the air fryer when they are hot and crispy!

All About the Air Fryer

 

WHAT IS AN AIR FRYER AND WHY USE IT OVER DEEP FRYING OR BAKING?

 

An air fryer is a countertop kitchen appliance that uses hot air as opposed to oil to “fry” foods. In some recipes a small amount oil is used, but the use of hot air eliminates the need to use a lot of unhealthy oil as you would in a deep fryer to yield a similar “fried” texture.

Baking is also often used as an alternative to deep-frying. The air fryer cooks foods faster than an oven and yields crispier results due to the small compartment (basket) for cooking and hot air convection process.

 

I don’t have an air fryer, which one should I get? 

 

You have a lot of choices when it comes to picking out an air fryer.

You could go with an affordable option like this air fryer by Dash. This was my first air fryer. I like the large basket and it’s easy to use. However, air frying is it’s only capability and it is not small, it takes up a lot of room on the counter top or in storage in your kitchen.

I was gifted the Ninja Foodi which has 9 different functions including air frying, pressure cooking, dehydrating and slow cooking. I like that it is multifunctional and the air frying function works really well. The downfall is that it is expensive, but if you are looking to consolidate a lot of your cooking appliances into one it is definitely the way to go!

I have also heard good things about the Cuisinart Air Fryer Convection Toaster Oven, it doubles as a toaster oven and is a more natural item to keep out on your countertop. 

It can be overwhelming trying to decide which air fryer is best or which one is going to work for you. I suggest you consider how often you are going to use it, where you are going to store it and if there are other kitchen appliances you need or want to consolidate when making your decision.
