“Air-fried chicken katsu that is crispy on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside. The sauce is a little bit sweet, a little bit tangy, and complements the chicken perfectly. Serve over rice if desired.”
These Air Fryer Boneless Pork Chops are nice and crispy with tons of Asian flavor. Have fun with the seasonings to create your own flavor combo or just follow the recipe as stated below.
Our Air Fryer is our go to when we are craving fried foods. Traditional frying has become a thing of the past (except when making things with loose batter). The internet has let me know that you all love your Air Fryers too which is awesome. I’ll keep the Air Fryer recipes coming ??
I find that the Air Fryer is perfect for cooking all kinds of meat, especially pork. If you haven’t tried my Air Fried Jamaican Jerk Pork Recipe, you should, it’s amazing! These air fried pork chops are just as amazing and about as easy to make in your air fryer.
I made this recipe with a traditional Japanese pork tonkatsu recipe in mind. Japanese Tonkatsu is thinly sliced pork (cutlet or chops) that is breaded in flour, egg, and panko and fried to perfection.
It’s generally served with a side of finely shredded cabbage and tonkatsu sauce. I usually skip the tonkatsu sauce and serve it with sweet chilli sauce.
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon sherry
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast, sliced in half horizontally
salt and ground black pepper to taste
2 large eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs
Whisk ketchup, soy sauce, brown sugar, sherry, Worcestershire sauce, and garlic together in a bowl until sugar has dissolved. Set katsu sauce aside.
Preheat an air fryer to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Meanwhile, lay chicken pieces on a clean work surface. Season with salt and pepper.
Place beaten eggs in a flat dish. Pour bread crumbs into a second flat dish. Dredge chicken pieces in egg and then in bread crumbs. Repeat by dredging chicken in egg and then bread crumbs again, pressing down so that the bread crumbs stick to the chicken.
Place chicken pieces in the basket of the pre-heated air fryer. Spray the tops with nonstick cooking spray.
Air fry for 10 minutes. Flip chicken pieces over using a spatula and spray the tops with nonstick cooking spray. Cook for 8 minutes more. Transfer chicken to a cutting board and slice. Serve with katsu sauce.
