Duck à l'Orange

While this Duck à l’Orange Thermomix recipe not a strictly traditional recipe or method of cooking, it captures the essence and flavour of the delicious sweet and sour orange dish. 

Think fancy apricot chicken! The vibrant colour is also a great way to sell it to young eaters. I always thought Duck à l’Orange was both something that people ate in the 70s, and very, very fancy.

Exclusive to the A Little Taste of France cookbook, this Duck à l’Orange Thermomix recipe is much healthier than the original but still capturing the classic French flavours.

If you aren’t a lover of duck, we also have a budget variation for chicken in the cookbook. Along with an All-in-One dinner variation, how-to cook crispy skin duck in a frypan and also Super Skinny / Paleo dietary variations.
