Breaded Pork Cutlets with Zucchini Noodles

If you love fried food and are looking for a healthier way to enjoy that classic crispy, rich flavor, then look no further than the air fryer. The air fryer allows you to achieve that crispy fried texture quickly and without the use of oil – it’s actually amazing!

My friend Gina from Skinnytaste recently launched her own air fryer with Vremi! You can check it out here and it’s what I used with this recipe and let me tell you – I was amazed! She also recently released a 75-recipe cookbook, titled The Skinnytaste Air Fryer Cookbook, full of air fryer recipes! Of course, I had to test one out, so I chose the Breaded Pork Cutlets and served them with zucchini noodles, tossed with some lime juice and olive oil. I love simple zoodle salads like this, they add a refreshing crunch to any meal.

The pork cutlets were easy and quick to make and the cleanup was easy. I will definitely be doing this again, maybe try some chicken cutlets melted with some mozzarella cheese and marinara sauce, served with some heated zucchini noodles.

There’s so much inspiration in Gina’s new book and recipes range from breakfast to dessert!

Breaded Pork Cutlets with Zucchini Noodles


  • 2 limes juiced
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 medium zucchinis Blade D, noodles trimmed
  • 8 thin boneless pork loin cutlets about 3 ounces each, trimmed of excess fat
  • 3 ?4 teaspoon adobo seasoning salt
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1 teaspoon sazón seasoning I like Badia
  • 1 ?2 cup plus 2 tablespoons seasoned bread crumbs regular or gluten-free
  • Olive oil spray
  • 5 ounces avocado from 1 medium Hass sliced
  • 1 large tomato sliced
  • 2 limes cut into wedges, for serving


  • Whisk together the lime juice, olive oil, salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Add the zucchini noodles, toss together, and set aside.
  • Working one at a time, place a pork cutlet between two sheets of plastic wrap. Use a heavy skillet or meat mallet to pound the pork to a 1/4-inch thickness, being careful not to tear the meat. Season the cutlets on both sides with the adobo seasoning.
  • In a shallow bowl, beat the egg with 1 teaspoon water and the sazón. Place the bread crumbs in a second shallow bowl. Dip the cutlets into the egg mixture, letting the excess drip off, then dip them in the bread crumbs. Place the cutlets on a work surface and press lightly with the flat side of a heavy knife to help the bread crumbs adhere. Generously spray both sides with oil.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 400°F.
  • Working in batches, place the cutlets in the air fryer basket. Cook for 6 to 7 minutes, flipping halfway, until golden brown and the center is no longer pink. (For a toaster oven–style air fryer, the temperature remains the same; cook for 6 minutes.)
  • Divide the cutlets among 4 plates and serve with the avocado, tomato, and lime wedges. Serve immediately

  • So just to clarify,the zuchinni noodles are raw and marinated, but not cooked at all?
    • Correct! This is a cold zucchini noodle salad side!
  • We did the pork cutlets with a salad (my husband won't eat zucchini). They were super delicious, literally took about 10 minutes total, were crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. The air fryer gets to stay - I suppose that means bye bye Instant pot....LOL
    • Hi Susan! Can never have too many kitchen appliances!
