Serves: 4
Preparation time: 5 minutes plus 20 minutes marinating time
Cooking time: 20 minutes


Preheat the oven to 220°C.

Slice 4 thin rings from one of the oranges and set aside. Squeeze the juice from the remaining oranges and mix with the SPLENDA® Granulated, the garlic, the balsamic vinegar and the orange liqueur.

Make 3-4 slashes in the skin of each breast, place in a non-metallic bowl and pour over the marinade. Cover and leave to marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes.

Heat a frying pan until hot. Remove the duck from the marinade, add to the pan and sear for 2-3 minutes until golden on both sides. Place in a small roasting tin and cook for 10 minutes until the skin is crisp. Remove from the oven and set aside in a warm place to rest.

Add any meat juices to a small frying pan with the reserved marinade and orange slices and simmer gently for 5 minutes. Add the duck breast and cook for a further 2 minutes. Remove the meat, slice and serve with the jus.

Tip: Serve with mashed potato and steamed vegetables.
