  3. Coat each cutlet (or pork chop) with flour and shake to remove any excess. Dip in egg, then in breadcrumbs, pressing down. Dip in egg and breadcrumbs again.
  4. Preheat the air fryer. Place 2 cutlets (or pork chops) at a time, depending on size of fryer. Spray with oil and cook at 200 °C (400 °F) for about 4 minutes. Turn over and spray again. Continue cooking for 4–5 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes and slice.
