Confit (meaning meat, such as duck, that has been salted and then cooked and preserved in its own fat) is similar to braising. We watched Emeril make this on Emeril Live and so we made it using half goose fat/half olive oil. It came out wonderfully moist! We made a Southern Pulled chicken sandwich by putting the chicken on some buns with BBQ sauce and cole slaw. It was sooooo good! This recipe works with duck or even turkey leg quarters. Although it's a extremely simple recipe, you will need to begin this recipe 24 hours in advance.
