Yield
4 servings (serving size: 1 duck breast half and 2 tablespoons sauce)

We used pinot noir for the red wine in the sauce. Substitute beef broth for an alcohol-free version. Use sweetened dried cranberries instead of cherries, if desired. Total time: 25 minutes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 6 ingredients, and set aside.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle both sides of duck with salt and pepper. Add duck to pan, and cook 3 minutes on each side or until a thermometer inserted into thickest portion registers 170°. Place duck on a cutting board; cover with foil.

Step 3

Add cherry mixture to pan; cook over medium-low heat 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Cut duck into thin slices; spoon cherry mixture over duck. Garnish with rosemary sprigs, if desired.
