Crack egg into a separate bowl and beat lightly. With large fork, dip each pork chop into the egg, and then into the cornflake mixture.

More expert tips on:

  1. Convert Recipes
  2. When converting a recipe with a suggested temperature for deep-frying or cooking in a traditional oven, lower the air fryer’s temperature by 25°F to achieve similar results. So if a recipe calls for deep-frying chicken in oil heated to 350°F, air fry at 325°F.
  3. Frozen Food Exception, no oil necessary. Meats like a hamburger or chicken thighs do not require oil. Commercially breaded items like onion rings, French fries, chicken nuggets, left-over pizza and egg rolls can easily be prepared in your air FRYER WITHOUT added oil. Roasting vegetables or homemade fries will require ½ -1 teaspoons of oil.
  4. Check for doneness earlier. Check the food about two-thirds of the way through the suggested cooking time to test doneness. Those fish sticks say they’ll be done in 15 minutes, check them at 10 minutes. Adapted from Cooking Light
