Air Fryer Cajun Lemon Garlic Cornish Hen

2nd time around on this delicious “fried” hen. First time used chopped garlic and kept getting stuck in the syringe so decided to switch to garlic powder when I had a chance to make again. Less frustration and just as tasty!


  1. 1 cornish hen
  2. Injection syringe for injection butter
  3. Injection Butter
  4. 4 Tbsp butter
  5. Half a lemon squeezed
  6. Cajun seasoning
  7. Garlic powder
  8. Dry Rub
  9. Lemon pepper
  10. Garlic powder
  11. Cajun seasoning


  1. Using syringe inject the bird with injection butter and rub any extra butter onto the outside.

  2. Season with the dry rub ingredients

  3. Cook in air fryer at 360° for 30 mins flipping half way through

  4. Let rest in the fryer for about 20 mins before serving so it’s nice and juicy ?
