I thought this was delish! The flavor was excellent, and the "melted" onions were great!!! I also only used 2 cups of water. At the end, I put the duck under the broiler to crisp up the skin a bit and it did the trick. (We made this with cauliflower & cheese which seemed to go well with it.)

We loved this recipe. I used boned duck breasts and followed the recipe except did not use the full amount of water. It was easy to follow and did not take a long time. I used three boned breasts and a few small pieces for three of us. Thanks for the recipe.
