  • Place sugar in a medium saucepan and set over medium-high heat. As sugar begins to melt, use a fork to gently stir sugar from edges to center of pan. Continue stirring in this manner until sugar is a deep amber color.

  • Remove caramel from heat and carefully stir in vinegar, orange zest and juice, chicken broth, and shallot. Return to medium-high heat and boil, stirring occasionally, until reduced to 2/3 cup, 20 to 25 minutes.

  • Score fat of duck breasts with the tip of a knife in a crosshatch pattern to form 1-inch diamonds. Season both sides of breasts with salt and pepper. Place breasts, fat side down, in a medium skillet and place over medium-high heat. Cook undisturbed until skin is crisp and golden brown, about 10 minutes. Flip and continue cooking to desired doneness, about 8 minutes more for medium-rare (125 degrees). Allow meat to rest 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

  • Add orange supremes to sauce and pour over sliced duck just before serving.

It would be nice if, in the video related to this recipe, Lucinda would come back and finish cooking the duck breasts. I waited through several "how to" videos for that to happen but it never did.

I made this today. I used a mix of red wine vinegar and balsamic as I did not have sherry vinegar and I used an onion instead of shallot. My wife loved it. So did I. Easy recipe and very delicious. Thank you!
