Cooks tips

Extra time for breast to be in the marinade makes for a tastier dish but don’t leave overnight as the spice will take over!

Serve with

This is a complete dish but to make it go further you could fry in the excess duck fat some traditional stir fry vegetables eg: mange tout, baby sweet corn etc. As you are using the fat it should taste of 5 spice.
