    This recipe was so quick and easy. I did add a drop of Cointreau and my daughter loved it. I made it for one so divided quantities.  -  28 Jan 2016


    The duck breasts I used were a bit on the small side, but sauce was lovely. Definitely worth making again, but with more meat next time as it was so yummy..  -  10 Jul 2016
