Chana Savory Duck


Chana savory duck got its inspiration from a small town in the Northern part of Ghana called Chana. Chana is where my dad was born and raised. This is a recipe I created for our Christmas party my family and I enjoyed with some friends over. My Chana Savory Duck was the highlight of our Christmas lunch because everybody kept going for more; which left ┬áme thinking maybe I should’ve roasted two ducks instead of just one. At this moment, the Duck is gone.

    I haven’t had duck in years. My first time was at a restaurant in London! I actually liked it but now I wonder why I never made it. I bypass it all the time at the international market. I have to try this out. It sounds yummy!

      Yeah, I got mine from an international market. Thanks for stopping by!

    For a long time I didn’t eat any meat–except for duck when my family went out for dinner. It’s such a delicious poultry that seems to be overlooked a lot of the time. I think that this spicy, sweet and gingery treatment sounds like a perfect match for duck and your family and friends were so lucky.

    What would you recommend serving with it?

    1. Fred Nonterah

      You can serve it with rice, potatoes or yams. Thanks a lot for stopping by and let me know how it goes when you try it?

    We’ve never made duck for Christmas, but I know it’s common in a lot of households. The spices you used sound really good. May be something to consider if we decide to cook duck this year.

      If you like heat on your meat then this will be great for you! Thanks for stopping by!

    I feel like people don’t cook duck enough. It’s one of my favorite proteins. This looks like heaven! I may make this for our next special occasion!

    1. Fred Nonterah

      I agree with that Nicole, duck isn’t well utilized.

  5. Jackie Garvin

    I’ve never cooked duck and I need to do something about that. I’m going to look for one at my grocery store. This would make s nice special occasion dish.

    1. Fred Nonterah

      Please try it, you’ll be sold.

  6. Marie-Pierre

    Strange how I never eat duck, but this could break the ice. Love habanero also so it should be a success!

    1. Fred Nonterah

      You should totally try it Marie-Pierre you would love it!

    If I made this recipe my son would think he died and went to heaven. Definitely pinning it to make it next time he’s home.

    1. Fred Nonterah

      Hahahaha, your son must be very interesting. Please share some pictures when you make it.

    Looks like a really great roast for Christmas. I must confess that I find duck or goose so much more appealing to chicken or turkey. So lovely that you named it after your dad’s hometown.

    1. Fred Nonterah

      Duck is definitely a good Azlin, very rich.
