4 Ingredient Recipe

Pork – Bone-in or boneless chops work, just make sure the chops are the same size and thickness so they’ll cook evenly.

Butter – Real butter is guilt-free on the keto diet! Healthy fats and tons of flavor elevate keto pork chops! If you have leftover bacon grease, use that instead for a smoky bacon flavor.

Breadcrumbs – These pork rind breadcrumbs are versatile for everything from pork chops to meatloaf to casseroles! Or use this keto breadcrumbs recipe and freeze for future recipes!

Seasonings – Use this garlic herb seasoning on chops, chicken, meatballs, or even in a salad dressing! Go spicy with a southwestern blend or a rich and deeply flavored blackened seasoning.

Variations – Add a scoopful of parmesan cheese to the breading mixture for an even more crispy and flavorful coating!

Keto Crumbs

  • ¾ cup crushed pork rind crumbs
  • cup grated parmesan cheese
  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning


  • 4 center cut pork chops ½-inch thick
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter


  • In a shallow dish, combine pork rinds, parmesan cheese, and Italian seasoning.
  • Dab the chops dry with paper towel and season with salt and pepper.
  • In another shallow dish, beat the egg. Dip each pork chop into the egg and then into the pork rind mixture. Gently press the crumbs into the pork chop.
  • In a large skillet, heat olive oil and butter over medium-high heat.
  • Add the chops to the skillet and cook for 3 minutes or until browned and crisp. Flip the chops over and cook for an additional 3 to 5 minutes or until the pork is cooked to 145°F.
  • Remove from the skillet and rest 5 minutes before serving.


In the Air Fryer:
  • Place seasoned pork chops in a single layer in an Air Fryer and cook at 400°F for 12 minutes, flipping over halfway through (add an extra minute for bone-in chops).
  • Internal temperature should be 140°F. Remove chops from the Air Fryer and rest for 5 minutes, allowing the temperature to reach 145°F.
In the Oven:
  • Place seasoned pork chops on a baking sheet at 400°F for 16 minutes.
  • Flip them over and broil the chops 4-6 inches from the heat for another 2-4 minutes, until they reach an internal temperature of 140°F.
  • Rest chops for 5 minutes, allowing the temperature to reach 145°F.
  • Watch the chops closely to avoid overcooking. Ensure they get a nice browned crust before flipping.
  • Pork chops can and should be a little bit pink inside for delicious and juicy chops.
  • Use a meat thermometer, inserted into the thickest part of the chop. It should read 140°F, and with a 5-minute rest time, the temperature should rise to 145°F.
