Easy Duck Breast w/Orange Sauce

Very easy, as most good cooking should be. The sauce I made tonight is very basic
Sauce: (this can be made ahead and warmed before serving)
1/2 cup orange juice(I squeezed two oranges for this)
1/2 cup chicken stock
2 good scoops of orange marmalade
pinch of salt
another 2 tblsp stock or orange juice and some cornstarch for thickening

Let this simmer and reduce to about half, then thicken. Check occasionally and adjust it for flavor as you wish.

Duck breasts:
I scored the duck breast skin, seasoned it with salt and pepper and placed it skin down in a med/hot pan for about 5 or 6 minutes until the skin was that color you see in the photo. Then turn it over and let it sizzle for another two or three minutes then turn it off and let it sit while you get the other stuff together...

Nice sounding recipe.
What breast temperature are you shooting for?

Normally, I prefer med rare which is around 130. I would stop the cooking at 120 to 125 and remove it to another plate so it can sit for about 5 minutes while you are getting the other stuff together.

Note: This time it ended up being Medium(which you can see in the photo) which is a bit over done for me. But it was still good, none the less....

Copied and pasted. It's breast meat. Stirling might like it. I'm sure I will.

Thanks for posting it Roch.

Looks good, Roch.

I haven't had duck for quite a while. As much as I love it, SO dislikes it. As a matter of fact, no one in my family likes it. My older daughter says, "It's all dark meat and I don't like dark meat.".

I think I'll treat myself to a duck breast next week.

It tastes lovely. Rich like beef. The orange sauce is a great accompaniment. Not something I would have every month but definitely a few times a year...

It sure does. I wish I could get people to just taste it.

If I can find a decent duck breast, I'd like to give it a try. My memories of duck were the nasty tasting mallards my Dad brought home from hunting trips when I was a kid.

I'm not sure I can get just the breast around here... I might have to cook the whole thing again,
I love the way the skin crisps on duck. And with a good sauce...
