Spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray. Wash the Cornish hen and pat dry it with paper towels. Rub both sides of the Cornish hen with olive oil. Sprinkle the seasonings and spices on both sides of the hen. Place the Cornish hen breast side down in the air fryer basket. Air fry for 25 minutes on 390°F. Open the basket and flip the Cornish hen halfway through. Cook for an additional 5-10 minutes if you want the skin to be a little crispier.
