Duck Legs in Green Olive Sauce with Cracklings and Pappardelle
This French country recipe also works well with chicken and will cook in about half the time. Prep and Cook Time: about 3 hours. Notes: Order duck legs from your butcher. We used cracked green olives for the best flavor, but you can substitute pitted ones. Save the extra duck fat; combined with olive oil or butter, it's a delicious medium for frying potatoes. To make the recipe with chicken thighs, in step 1, increase sugar and salt to 6 tbsp. each. Baking time will be about 45 minutes. Cook pasta after chicken is tender. Reduce the sauce in step 8: Pour it into a saucepan and boil until reduced to 3 cups, about 5 minutes.
