Breaded pork chops are so good, and frankly, they’re a staple of a lot of Southern meals. There’s a reason they’re so good though – because they’re fried.
We’re going to show you how to make a healthier version of the super tasty pork chops that feel just as indulgent, and are just as good. These garlic herb pork chops are made in the air fryer and can be on the table in about 30 minutes.
Yes, you heard that correctly. We’re making these delicious pork chops in the air fryer. It’s quick, it’s easy, and they come out crispy, just like you want. The other secret is we’re using panko breadcrumbs. They stay crispier, and help add that good crunch you’re looking for.

You’ll need a couple things for this recipe. The first, of course, is an air fryer. You’ll want one that’s big enough to cook pork chops for the whole family. If you have a large family, you’ll want a larger air fryer, like the Kalorik 26 Quart Digital Air Fryer Oven. If you’re a couple, a smaller air fryer like the PowerXL Vortex Pro 8qt Air Fryer works great.
You’ll also want some garlic herb seasoning. You can use whatever you have on hand, but ever since my first trip to the Gilroy Garlic Festival, I’ve been a a huge fan of Garli Garni and it’s sister seasoning Garli Ghetti. Garli Garni is a garlic herb blend, and Garli Ghetti is basically the same with the addition of Parmesan and Romano cheeses. Kingsford also makes decent garlic herb seasoning.

About the PowerXL Vortex Pro 8 Qt Air Fryer
Air fryers have shown that they’re not a fad, and they’re not going anywhere any time soon. In fact, they keep getting better and better. The PowerXL Vortex Pro 8 Quart Air Fryer is the perfect size for a couple or a small family.
With two cooking levels, it allows you to cook a full meal. So you could make a big batch of these tasty garlic herb pork chops, or you could make pork chops and something like twice baked potatoes (sooo good in the air fryer!) or another side dish, like air fryer brussel sprouts. As if that wasn’t enough, the fry tray lets you cook closer to the element, which lets you get that good bubbly, brulee-type topping.
The PowerXL Vortex Pro also works to broil, bake, reheat, and dehydrate. Yes, that means you could make veggie chips or dried fruit easily, at home. It also has presets for vegetables, eggs, chicken, fish, and french fries.
