Fast & Easy Dinner: 20-Minute Peking Duck

Normally Peking duck takes over 24 hours to make, however this dish — which is inspired by the ingredients used in the traditional Chinese recipe — comes together in twenty short minutes. Duck breasts are used instead of a whole duck, making for a quick cook time. The fragrant, syrup-like sauce is a blend of fresh orange juice, sesame oil, and Sriracha.
