One Pan Duck Breast With Shredded Cabbage and Potatoes

I love cooking, and I love cooking that doesn’t create a lot of washing up at the same time. A meal in one pan that takes approx 30 minutes from preparation to plate is perfect for busy evenings when time is precious.

The beauty of this dish is that it can be made for one without a lot of hassle. I enjoyed this meal whilst the rest of the family were eating elsewhere, but it would be just as easy to cook for a family by increasing the quantities.

    I do love duck. How do you like it? Pink, or well cooked?

    Looks like a great meal for one that’s easy to cook. I hate using lots of pans when it’s just me.

    That looks really tasty. I’ve never really had duck properly and would love to try it.
