A comforting and unique recipe that combines the richness of pork chops with the sweetness of chocolate chips, all while incorporating the crunch of air-fried corn. This dish is sure to surprise and delight your taste buds!

Ingredients

  • 4 pork chops (1-1.5 inches thick)
  • 1 cup of corn kernels
  • 1/2 cup of chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: your favorite seasonings (e.g. paprika, garlic powder, thyme)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
  2. In a bowl, toss the corn kernels with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, salt, and pepper until they're evenly coated.
  3. Load the corn into the air fryer basket and cook for 10-12 minutes, shaking halfway through. This will give you a nice crispy corn.
  4. While the corn is cooking, prepare the pork chops. Season both sides with salt, pepper, and your favorite seasonings (if using).
  5. In a large skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat. Sear the pork chops for 2-3 minutes per side, or until they're browned and cooked to your desired level of doneness. Transfer the pork chops to a plate and set aside.
  6. In the same skillet, add the chocolate chips. Yes, you read that right! Let them melt and stir occasionally until they're smooth and creamy. This will create a sweet and savory sauce.
  7. To serve, place a pork chop on each plate, top with a spoonful of the chocolate sauce, and surround with the crispy air-fried corn.
