Place orange juice and honey into a small saucepan and simmer on medium heat, stirring to dissolve and combine. Simmer for 5-6 mins until the volume has reduced by half and thickened to a dark toffee colour.
Add ¾ cup of stock, one tablespoon butter, salt, vinegar and orange zest. Stir to combine and reduce heat to low.

Mix remaining ¼ cup stock with cornflour in a cup to create a slurry. Pour into saucepan and stir slowly while cooking to thicken. This will take a couple of minutes. Once thickened to your desired consistency, taste for seasoning and add additional salt if needed. Remove from heat and set aside.

Pre-heat oven to 180°C. Heat a frypan on medium-high heat. Add 1 Tbsp butter to melt. Place duck breasts skin down into pan. Cook for 4 mins then turn for a further minute. Then place duck into the oven for 8-10 mins on a lined baking tray or in the frypan if oven-safe.
Rest duck for at least 5 mins then slice and serve with potatoes and beans. Dress with orange sauce.

Absolutely delicious recipe. Easy to follow instructions. The orange sauce complemented the duck. I baked it at 65c cooked temperature. The duck fat roast potatos were crunchy and marriage made in heaven with the duck. Thankyou Luvaduck:)
