    Duck a l'orange was the first French dish to appear in the US. This recipe is a classic.

    Ingredients -

    2 duck breast halves, seasoned with salt and pepper

    ¼ cup unsalted butter

    2 tablespoons orange zest

    2 tablespoons minced shallots

    ¼ cup white sugar

    2 tablespoons water

    2 tablespoons sherry vinegar

    1½ cups orange juice

    1½ cups chicken stock

    4 oranges, sections cut from membranes


    Boil the sugar and water for a few minutes, until the syrup caramelizes and turns a golden brown color. Add the vinegar, juice, shallots, and chicken stock and simmer until the sauce is reduced to a little less than a cup. Add butter and 1 tablespoon of orange zest. Stir in the orange segments.

    In a skillet, sear the duck breasts over a high heat. Cook the duck for about 10 minutes on each side. Pour the prepared sauce over the duck breasts and garnish with the remaining orange zest. This duck a l'orange recipe makes 2 servings.

    I am also attaching a couple of links to crockpot duck recipes.

    Put duck in roasting pan, you can stuff the cavity with pieces of orange, sprinkle with generous amount of course salt and pepper, put water up to the top of leg of duck as it lays breast up, approx. 2inches. Cook at 350 for 3hrs, covered. Drain juice off and leave off cover, oven up to 400 and cook for an additional 45 min. Let rest and enjoy!

    I personally hate duck. However you can go online and search. The way you cook it depends on what you have. Whole Duck? Breast? I mean the way you cook it varies.
