Cooking Light's Seared Orange Duck Breast

This is from Cooking Light, 2006. I've used duck legs and it works just fine. I also add Chinese five spice to the duck with the orange zest and garlic. And sometimes, I turn it into a drunken duck by adding a tablespoon or so of Grand Marnier to the sauce while I'm reducing it. I serve this beautiful dish with whipped sweet potatoes (with orange zest, cream cheese and Chinese five spice powder) and roasted green beans with shallots. This pairs nicely with a sweet to semi-sweet white wine. Enjoy!
