Air Fryer Pork Cutlets

crispy air fryer pork cutlets breaded in panko

These air fryer breaded pork cutlets turned out really well.  I was overall impressed with how well the Power Air Fryer cooked the cutlets.  They were golden brown and very moist on the inside.

My wife couldn’t believe they were cooked in an air fryer.  This is a very simple recipe that only calls for a few ingredients.  It’s just like making chicken fried steak, but it’s tenderized pork cutlets.
