Perfect for air frying, these Cornish hens are juicy and flavorful. Most hens average 16-24 ounces are great for smaller air fryers.
If air frying just one Cornish hen, Air Fry at 350°F/177°C. The timing & directions remain the same.
Air Fry at 360°F/182°C for 20 minutes then flip the hens.
If needed, crumple some foil and place under the front of the Cornish hens to level them and keep the legs from sticking upwards toward the top of the air fryer where the heating element can get too hot. This will keep the legs from burning.
Air Fry for another 12-18 or until internal temperature reaches 165°F/74°C.
Allow the hens to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
