This recipe for the Braised Duck Breasts with Apples and Onions is an homage to that Russian Duck with Apples. In Russia, the most popular duck recipe is for the whole duck that is stuffed with whole or chopped apples and then roasted in the oven. In my version, I use duck breasts that I sear first, then braise in a delicious mixture of Ontario apples, onions, thyme, and cranberries. For those who think that braising duck breasts is a sacrilege, I tried this same recipe with duck legs also. It works and is totally delicious but I personally like Braised Duck Breasts with Apples and Onions more than the legs. To make this recipe even more Russian, I serve it with buckwheat, which is a traditional side in Russian cuisine.
