Slow Cooker Sweet Duck Legs

Slow Cooker Sweet Duck Legs

This Slow Cooker Sweet Duck Legs recipe is great for a weeknight dinner.  Duck meat, cooked in a slow cooker, is so tender it falls off the bone.  The sweetness from the prunes, apricots, and pears is such a nice addition to the meat.

There is no need to marinate.  Simply combine all ingredients in a slow cooker and let it cook while you are at work.  Come home and it’s ready to serve.

Enjoy your dinner.  Savor it!

Side Dishes to Serve With Duck:

I love duck with wild rice.  But, it goes well with white rice and so many other side dishes.
Try it with mashed potatoes, roasted vegetables, or sauteed cabbage.

Try our Sauteed Cabbage with Mushrooms and Bacon recipe, which will work great with duck.

Or, try this fresh Cabbage and Ham Salad.
