Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the air fryer to 390 degrees F (200 degrees C), about 5 minutes, if directed by the manufacturer.

  • Combine cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Add egg and whisk until all ingredients are well combined. Place pecans on a plate.

  • Dip each pork chop into the egg mixture, then set on the plate with the pecans, pressing pecans firmly onto both sides until coated. Spray the chops on both sides with cooking spray and place in the air fryer basket.

  • Cook in the air fryer for 6 minutes. Turn chops carefully with tongs, and air fry until pork is no longer pink in the center, about 6 minutes longer. Serve warm, garnished with fresh parsley.

Cook's Notes:

This recipe yielded chops that were tender and done to medium. Four chops fit well in my 5.8 quart air fryer basket. If you have a smaller machine, you may need to cook in batches, keeping the batches warm in the oven, until all are finished.

Air fryers perform differently, according to brand design. Your air fryer may provide different results.
