I cooked duck fat potatoes first, then layered duck breast over them. If you want to skip the potatoes, then make sure you do a 5 minute 160c/320f preheat.
If cooking duck legs in the air fryer instead change the cook time. Start with 15 minutes at 180c/360f. Then cook for a final 6 minutes at 160c/320f. This ensures that the duck legs are well cooked in the middle.
