    Can't believe I missed this one, maybe I just didn't have the breasts for it! This is truly amazing, as you say a twist on the normal oeange duck & how. I added everything O.T.T. cos that's the way we like it. Served it with cajun wedge potatoes & broccoli with a little hollandaise sauce, yum a regular now. Many thanke.

    Excellent!! The sauce was fruity with a nice hot kick. I made the sauce in advance, it took a bit longer to thicken, but after cooling and reheating it it was a very good concistency. I used 2 teaspoons Sambal Oelek instead of the fresh chilies, just did not have the fresh ones at the time. The only little change I made was thet I added a fat clove of crushed garlic to the sauce ingredients. Served it with noodles and a vegetable stir fry. Thanks Vanessa for a great recipe!
