Here's another James Beard classic. We used to make this for our anniversary every year. The orange sauce is awesome! The Grand Marnier and the fresh orange zest really add that special touch. We usually double the sauce because we love it over rice on the side. It can also be made with roasted chicken, but duck makes it really special.
