What is Shake and Bake?

Shake ‘N Bake refers to a brand of seasoned coating mix that is composed of breadcrumbs, sugar, spices, and herbs. This product is manufactured by Kraft, a well-known company. It was initially introduced in 1965 and quickly gained popularity with its iconic commercial slogan, “It’s Shake ‘N Bake, and I helped!” Shake ‘N Bake offers a variety of seasoned breadcrumbs, ranging from original chicken to extra crispy chicken, original pork, and more. Each pack contains two seasoning packs and two shaker bags, which are sufficient for 2-4 servings depending on your family size.

How to Make Air Fryer Shake and Bake Pork Chops

  1. Lightly spray the air fryer basket with oil spray.
  2. Arrange the seasoned pork chops in a single layer in the air fryer basket.
  3. Lightly spray the top of the meat with oil.

How to Serve

Pork chops are incredibly versatile and pair well with various side dishes such as roasted potatoes, mashed potatoes, seasoned rice, cornbread, or your personal favorites. They also taste great with an array of sauces, including creamy garlic sauce, parsley sauce, barbecue sauce, or honey mustard.

How to Store

For optimal taste and texture, it is best to enjoy these shake and bake pork chops on the day they are made, as the breadcrumb coating tends to lose its crunchiness the next day. However, if you happen to have leftovers, simply store them in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 3 days.

To reheat: Place the chops back in the air fryer and cook for 5-6 minutes at 260F / 180C, flipping halfway through, until they are warmed to your liking.

Can I Make This Recipe with Chicken?

Absolutely! While the Kraft seasoning mix used in this recipe is specifically designed for pork, there is no reason why you can’t use it with chicken as well. If you try this recipe with a different protein, I would love to hear your feedback. Thank you!

Cooking Time for Pork Chops in the Air Fryer

The cooking time for pork chops in an air fryer depends on the thickness of the meat and the temperature setting of your air fryer. Typically, 1-inch thick pork chops will require about 12-15 minutes of cooking, whereas thinner cuts will cook in less time.

If you are cooking meat or using an air fryer frequently, investing in a meat thermometer is advisable. This will enable you to cook your pork chops to the desired level of doneness and ensure that you meet food safety standards. Generally, pork should be cooked to an internal temperature of 145F / 62C to be considered safe.
