Duck breast à l’orange
- Preparation : 15 minutes
- Cooking : 15 minutes
- Portions : 4
- 2 boneless duck breasts with skin on, about 200 g (½ lb) each
- 60 ml (¼ cup) marmalade
- 30 ml (2 tbsp) flour
- 30 ml (2 tbsp) Grand Marnier-style citrus liqueur
- 250 ml (1 cup) chicken broth
- 30 ml (2 tbsp) butter
Preheat the oven to 190°C (375°F).
Using a knife, score the skin of the duck breasts in a crisscross pattern, taking care not to cut into the meat. Salt and pepper the duck breasts.
In a large ovenproof skillet, sear the breasts, skin side down, for 2 to 3 minutes over medium-high heat. Turn the breasts over and continue cooking for another 2 minutes.
Turn the breasts over again and brush with 30 ml (2 tbsp) of marmalade.
Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake for 7 to 8 minutes.
Remove from the oven and transfer the breasts to a cutting board. Cover with foil and let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.
Meanwhile, melt the butter over medium heat in a small saucepan. Sprinkle with flour and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the rest of the marmalade, the citrus liqueur and the chicken broth while whisking. Bring to a boil. Add salt and pepper. Simmer 2 to 3 minutes, until thickened.
Slice the breasts and serve with the sauce.
