Crispy Keto Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops in the Air Fryer by Jennifer



  • 4 to 6 thick center cut boneless pork chops (these are my favorite but you can use the bone-in pork chops also)
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper
  • 1 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup pork rind crumbs
  • 3 tbs grated parmesan cheese



  1. Preheat the air fryer to 400F for about 10 minutes.
  2. Season both sides of each pork chop with salt and pepper.
  3. Use a food processor to blend the pork rinds into crumbs.
  4. Combine the pork rind crumbs, parmesan cheese, and seasonings in a large bowl.
  5. Place the beaten egg in a separate bowl.
  6. Dip each pork chop into the egg mixture first, then the crumb mixture immediately after.
  7. Place each pork chop in the basket.
  8. Cook them at 400 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes.  15 minutes for the really thick pork chops.  I am usually able to fit about 4 or 5 pork chops in the basket of the air fryer at a time.

Serve with a side salad and enjoy!


I’ve made this recipe a few different times and the next time I made it I used the bone in pork chops.  I was only able to fit about 3 in the air fryer because they are wider and not as thick.  I definitely prefer the center cut thick pork chops.  Both of pork chops can out crispy in the air fryer and tasty too!

Here are a few photos we took of both the thick cut center cut pork chops and the bone in pork chops.


Here’s the same recipe made with bone in pork chops:
