    For the Cinnamon Scented Duck Breast

    For the Sauce


    1. 1
      For the duck, mix the cinnamon and the sugar.
    2. 2
      Score the fat of the duck breast and season with salt and pepper.
    3. 3
      Spread the cinnamon sugar over the top and press into the fat.
    4. 4
      Set aside in the fridge to marinate for 4 to 12 hours.
    5. 5
      For the sauce, combine all the ingredients in a saucepan and heat until the sauce has reduced by at least half, to a syrupy consistency.
    6. 6
      Sear the duck breast in a non-stick pan over a medium heat until the fat has rendered and the skin is crispy, about 4 minutes.
    7. 7
      Transfer the duck breasts to a 375°F oven to finish cooking for about 7 minutes.
    8. 8
      Remove the breasts from the oven and set aside in a warm place to rest for a couple of minutes before slicing very thinly.
    9. 9
      Serve the sauce with the duck.

      Oh my goodness!! This duck is absolutely fantastic! I marinated a whole duck for about 24 hours and then threw it in the rotisserie so I can't comment on the cooking time but the flavor in the duck as well as the sauce is amazing. I will most definitely be making this again. Thanks for posting this keeper!
