Easy Orange Glaze Duck

Recipe by  

"My husband told me his grandmother made something similar to this, so I made up a recipe and it turned out delicious! Now it is a favorite at holiday meals and whenever we can find ducks. Makes enough for 1 or 2 ducks. If you want, marinate the duck the night before in the mixture. It makes it a little more tender."

Directions

  1. Pour the orange soda, orange juice concentrate, barbecue sauce, brown sugar, and teriyaki sauce into a bowl, and stir to combine and dissolve the sugar.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Remove any excess pieces of fat from inside the duckling, place the duck into a roasting pan, and prick the skin all over with a fork to allow the fat to drain off while roasting.
  3. Brush the duckling with the orange mixture. Place the mushrooms into the cavity of the duck, and spoon in some of the orange sauce.
  4. Roast the duck in the preheated oven, brushing it every 20 to 30 minutes with the orange sauce, until a meat thermometer inserted into a thick part of a thigh reads 165 degrees F (75 degrees C), about 2 1/2 hours.

I loved this recipe and so did the entire family! The only ingredient I didn't use was the mushrooms. I used my NuWare Pro and the duck came out perfect! Thanks for sharing!

This Is Gourgeous. I added sliced oranges. It was a favorite to my whole family.

I loved it, but the kids not so much, but it was the first time they had duck, and the first time I ever cooked it. It was really easy, and I thought the flavor was great, I used fresh mushrooms and half an orange inside the cavity, and used some of the extra sauce in a rice and vegetable dish that accompanied it.

Made this for New Year's Eve and it was incredible! A big hit with everyone. Not too hard to make, flavor was not overpowering, and made the duck so tender and juicy! Recipe did not specify covering the roasting pan, but we did until the last 20 minutes. The golden appearance of the bird was beautiful!

Really good duck recipe! This is my favorite as well as my Mom's. Sauce has great flavor that goes really well with the duck. Will definitely make again!

I made this today and the family really enjoyed it, even my 4-yr old! To make it extra tender, I brined it for a day (water, brown sugar, salt). I also added rosemary and sage in the roasting pan for the aroma. I'll definitely be making this again! :)
