  • 1/2 cup low fat buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Tabasco sauce
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 (1/2-inch) bone-in pork chops
  • seasoned salt


  1. Place buttermilk and hot sauce in a large zip top bag. Add pork chops and refrigerate for 1 hour.

  2. Combine flour, paprika, and black pepper in a shallow dish.

  3. Remove pork chops from bag, sprinkle seasoned salt on both sides and coat in flour mixture.

  4. Preheat Air Fryer to 400 degrees.

  5. Lightly spray pork chops and air fryer basket with oil. Fry 2 pork chops at a time for about 12 minutes, turning halfway through. It's a good idea to spray them with a little more oil when you flip them over.
