This Duck Wrap Packed Lunch is one of my girls favourite packed lunch meals. It’s really easy to prepare and the girls can do most of it by themselves now with just a little input from me or Mr Dad.
To Make The Duck Wrap You Need
- Duck Breast or legs (one makes about 3 small wraps
- Small/Mini Wraps
- Plum sauce or similar condiment
- Vegetable rice (optional – recipe here just don’t add the chicken)
- Long thin slices of fresh carrot (Julienne)
- Long thin slices of fresh cucumber (Julienne)
- Long thin slices of fresh pepper
Cut some long thin lines into the skin of the duck and fry all sides on a high heat to seal all the juices in. Do not add any oil to the pan first. Duck skin is very fatty and will quickly produce it’s own fat in the pan. If your using a duck leg spoon the hot fat that collects in the frying pan over the hard to reach areas.
Transfer to a baking tray and cook for a approx’ 30 minutes (it may be shorter depending on your oven). Duck contains a lot of fat/oil that escapes while cooking so either use a roasting tin that has a raised area or rest your duck on some vegetables so the fat can drain away.
If the girls are having duck wrap for a packed lunch I fry the duck the night before and leave it in the oven overnight all set up for my girls to turn or Mr Dad (he gets up before me) to turn on. By the time I’m up the duck id done … the girls keep a watchful eye on it for me.
Whilst the duck is cooking my girls carefully cut the carrots, cucumber and pepper. I tend to cut the carrot and cucumber into planks for them first and then cut those pieces into the fine julienne slices.
Finally shred your duck and build your wrap.
If you have some left over vegetable rice put a layer of this down first and drizzle with your plum sauce (or similar). Don’t worry if you don’t just spread a thin layer of plum sauce straight onto the wrap.
Then add your shredded duck followed by a mix of your sliced veggies.
Fold the bottom end of your wrap slightly up so it just folds over the bottom of you duck and veggies. Then fold in each side.
If your doing this for a packed lunch use a cocktail stick to secure the wrap in place whilst you get some tin foil to securely wrap it in. Remember to remove the cocktail stick just before you wrap it though!
