Pan fried duck breast
One of my Dad’s favourite meals is duck breast. This duck breast with orange sauce is very easy to make and is really delicious.
The orange sauce recipe for this meal is really tasty and you can also make it to accompany chicken if you wish.
Orange is a great accompaniment to duck and you will find them used together a lot.
Duck a l’orange or canard a l’orange (in French) is a well-known combination of duck and orange.
Although the dish is now thought to be French, the Italians, of course, claim it originated in Italy.
I will not go further into that, except to say that whoever came up with this combination was brilliant!
The nice thing about this duck gravy is that it requires very little preparation and is quickly on the table.
The duck breast also does not take long to cook so you can produce this meal in less than 15 minutes.

Your accompanying vegetables may take longer to cook depending on what you choose to serve with it.
We are lucky that we can pick up a few breasts of fresh duck here in our local Aldi for only about 3,50 Euros so we can produce this meal very cheaply.
This is really a mix between pan-fried duck breast and roast duck breast as the same pan goes into the oven to finish off the meat.
