Whether you're a seasoned air-fryer user or a beginner, this recipe is sure to impress your family and friends. So, let's get started!


To make this delectable air-fryer turkey crown, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 1.7kg turkey crown
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 1 clementine, halved
  • 1 shallot, halved
  • 2 garlic cloves, bashed
  • A few fresh herb sprigs, such as sage, thyme, or oregano

Preparing the Turkey Crown

  1. Start by preheating your air fryer. If your air fryer has a preheat function, use it. Otherwise, set the temperature to 180C and let it heat up for approximately 2 minutes.

  2. While the air fryer is heating, take the turkey crown and pat it dry using kitchen paper. This will help the skin crisp up nicely.

  3. Once the turkey crown is dry, rub it all over with vegetable oil. This will add flavor and help the skin become golden and crispy.

  4. Season the turkey crown well with salt and pepper, ensuring that every inch of the skin is seasoned.

  5. Sprinkle the dried mixed herbs over the skin of the turkey crown. This will infuse it with a delightful herby aroma.

  6. If the turkey crown allows, you can stuff the cavity with the halved clementine, shallot, garlic cloves, and fresh herb sprigs. These aromatic additions will enhance the flavor of the meat as it cooks. If you're unable to stuff the cavity, you can place these ingredients around the crown in the air-fryer basket instead.

  7. Carefully place the turkey crown in the air-fryer basket, making sure that the skin is facing down.

Cooking the Turkey Crown

  1. Set the air fryer to cook at 180C and let the turkey crown cook for 30 minutes.

  2. After the initial 30 minutes, carefully turn the turkey crown over using tongs or a spatula. This will ensure even cooking and browning on both sides.

  3. Continue cooking the turkey crown for another 20-30 minutes, or until the juices run clear when pierced with a knife in the thickest part. If you have a meat thermometer, it should read 65C when inserted into the meat.

  4. Once the turkey crown is cooked to perfection, remove it from the air fryer and let it rest for a few minutes. This will allow the juices to redistribute, resulting in a tender and juicy turkey crown.

  5. Carve the turkey crown into slices and serve it with your favorite sides. Enjoy the deliciousness!

Additional Tips

  • If you want a crispier skin, you can brush the turkey crown with melted butter before cooking.
  • Experiment with different herb combinations to suit your taste preferences.
  • To ensure food safety, make sure the internal temperature of the turkey crown reaches 75C.

Now that you have the perfect recipe for an air-fryer turkey crown, it's time to put your culinary skills to the test. Enjoy the ease and convenience of cooking in an air fryer while savoring the delicious flavors of a perfectly cooked turkey crown. Happy cooking!
