Homemade Orange "Duck Sauce" Recipe

Sorry for the somewhat infrequent posting this past week- we just had a wedding in the family last night, and I was very busy with wedding preparations... On top of that, today the festivities are continuing and I agreed to help cater 3 meals for 30 people, so I've been cooking and cooking and cooking and cooking...

I wanted to share a recipe with you that I am making for the party, something very delicious and easy to make. Its "duck sauce", but instead of being made with apricots, its made with orange juice. I use it for cooking chicken (in this case stuffed chicken breast), as a sauce for rice, as a dipping sauce for egg rolls, etc... Use it any way you'd use regular duck sauce. I didn't make up this recipe- I tweaked it from a recipe I got on a forum. Its really, really delicious.

Orange "Duck Sauce" Recipe

2 tablespoons oil
2 large onions
3/4 cup sugar or honey
1 tsp dried ginger
3-4 tablespoons lemon juice
My stuffed chicken breast with homemade duck
 sauce- recipe tomorrow
1-2 tablespoons potato starch, corn starch, or tapioca starch
2 cups orange juice
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Chop the onion and saute in oil. Add the sugar/honey and cook until syrupy.

2. Mix the starch with the orange juice, and add all the ingredients to the pot.

3. Heat up the sauce until it begins to thicken.


Its best to use the sauce fresh, as the texture changes once you cool it down.

Do you use duck sauce in your home? What are your favorite ways to use it? Any chance you'd try out this recipe?
