Instructions Checklist
  • Place panko, paprika, garlic powder and onion powder in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add pork; seal the bag and shake to coat. Remove the pork from the bag; shake off excess breading. Place the pork in air-fryer basket; coat with cooking spray. Cook at 360°F until the pork is browned and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 145°F, 15 to 17 minutes. Transfer the pork to a plate; let rest for 5 minutes. Sprinkle evenly with salt.
