READY IN: 2hrs 45mins
Recipe by litldarlin

This is the same recipe that they served at one of my favorite restaurants. One of the waitresses is a friend from way back and gave me the recipe. I have made this for my boyfriend several times. He loves the sauce. I was surprised that my son and his girlfriend also liked this dish. They are both very picky eaters.

This is my favorite duck recipe. I like to make extra sauce for dipping. If you want to be cheap, you can substitute chicken and it is almost as tasty.
