  • Extra large air fryer or oil less propane fryer
  • Meat thermometer


  • 1 organic whole white turkey
  • 1 jar Tony Chachere's Injectable Butter Marinade
  • 1 jar Tony Chachere's creole seasoning
  • 5 tbsp olive oil


  • Make sure that your turkey is completely thawed in advance if frozen.
  • Place the whole turkey (or boneless turkey breast) on a clean kitchen surface and use the Tony Chachere's Injectable Butter Marinade and utensil to inject seasoning into both lobes of the turkey breasts. You can inject the marinade into any portion of the meat for added flavor. You can either inject it several hours in advance to let the turkey abosrb the flavor, or even right before cooking.
  • Using a spray oil, lightly spray the air fryer basket so that the turkey doesn't stick when trying to remove it. You'll also want to give the outside of the turley a light spray so that the powder seasoning will stick easier as well.
  • Rub the powder creole seasoning along the outside of the turkey for added flavor on the skin.
  • Place in the fryer on medium heat for approximately 3 hours, or about 10 minutes per pound of your total turkey weight.
  • Check the internal temperature of the turkey in several places. Once the temperature has reached 165 degrees F, the turkey is ready!
  • Remove from the fryer and let it rest for 30 minutes before carving and serving.
