ROASTED DUCK L’ORANGE
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon salt
1 large apple (I used Granny Smith)
2 Cloves garlic
2 Sage leaves
1 teaspoon light olive oil
4 tablespoons spicy mango chutney
2 tablespoons peach preserves
Juice of 1 orange
3 tablespoons of duck drippings, from pan
1⁄4 cup red wine
Sprinkle chili powder, garlic powder, and salt all over duck.
Cut 1-inch slice in skin of duck on both sides of breasts.
Puree garlic, sage and olive oil and fill in slices in skin with mixture.
Chop apple into 1-inch pieces and stuff inside duck.
Bake at 175*C for 1 hour 30 minutes for a slightly rare duck, or 2 hours for a well done duck.
Put the ingredients for the L’Orange sauce in saucepan and heat until alcohol simmers off, about 6 minutes.
Serve L’Orange sauce over sliced duck breasts and other parts.
Makes about 1 cup.
