      This was OK. Some of the coating fell off of mine, but it could just be because of the scratched up frying pan. No one really liked the lemon flavor. I didn't think it was too bad, but I don't think I'll make it again.

        Has anyone tried this in the air fryer?

          I used pie loin…All the coating got stuck to the pan 🙃

            This was great. I didn’t have any lemon zest so I used a little lemon pepper in place of the salt and pepper. Other than that I followed it exact. It was so juicy and flavorful. Whipped it up quick.

              Made this on a wimp, I didn’t have any lemon so I didn’t use it but I did follow the rest of the recipe/ingredients and it was very good! Will be making it again.

                            I used pork rinds instead of almond flour. Did them in the air fryer and they were great. Great lemon taste

                              I don’t see Almond Flour being used. Am I missing something? I read Ground Almonds. Is that the same as Almond Flour?

                              My family absolutely loves this but I use ground up pork rinds instead of almond flour and it helps lower the carbs.

                              Cook as directed but when chops start to brown throw in oven to finish. Came out great. We made these with asparagus coated in Parmesan cheese and bacon bits.

                                The pork is 241 calories for 5 oz. Almond flour is 162 cals for 1 oz. 1 / 2 egg is 60 cal. 14 grams of parmesean is 28 cals . Recipe says 2 servings so halved all ingredients. Air fried so no olive oil . Total calls were 481.

                                    I always change my breading, I’ve used these in the past 1) Whey protein isolate OR 2) a mixture of ground pork rinds and coconut flour

                                  My husband and I love these! I’ve baked them & also fried them. We both prefer them baked.

                                  These pork chops were fantastic!! My husband loved them. They were so tender. I cooked them on the stovetop to brown then put them in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes to make sure they were done. Will definitely fix again.
