Pork Schnitzel (Air Fryer)

Contributed By: Parker


1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 large egg
2 tablespoons 2% milk
3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
1 teaspoon paprika
4 pork sirloin cutlets (4 ounces each)
Cooking spray
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
3/4 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 teaspoon dill weed


1. Preheat air fryer to 375°. In a shallow bowl, mix flour, seasoned salt and pepper. In a second shallow bowl, whisk egg and milk until blended. In a third bowl, mix bread crumbs and paprika.
2. Pound pork cutlets with a meat mallet to 1/4-in. thickness. Dip cutlets in flour mixture to coat both sides; shake off excess. Dip in egg mixture, then in crumb mixture, patting to help coating adhere.
3. Place pork in a single layer on greased tray in air-fryer basket; spritz with cooking spray. Cook until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Turn; spritz with cooking spray. Cook until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes longer. Remove to a serving plate; keep warm.
4. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, whisk flour and broth until smooth. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir 2 minutes or until thickened. Reduce heat to low. Stir in sour cream and dill; heat through (do not boil). Serve with pork.
