Air Fryer Cornish Hen
How to Make Air Fryer Cornish Hen
- I’ve found it’s best to start with meat that is as close to room temperature as possible.
- Preheat your Air fryer for 5 minutes @ 325f. While that’s preheating you can mix the oil and seasonings together in a bowl.
- Fowl doesn’t need to marinate for Air frying. Brush the oil/seasoning mix on the entire Game Hen, inside & out. Place the onion wedge inside the bird. Some people tie the legs together, I personally didn’t find it necessary.
- Place the hen in the fryer. Set your timer for 10 minutes at 325f. After the 10 minutes, flip the hen over and repeat @ 325f for ten minutes. Reapeat this cycle 1 more time. I raised the temperature to 390f for the 4th rotation to get an extra crispy skin on top. It’s important to let the finished meat sit for a few minutes after it’s cooked.
