Directions

MAKING
1 Peel the onions and slice them as thinly as possible (a food processor fitted with a 2mm slicing blade does this well).
2 In a heavy saucepan,heat fat or oil over medium heat.Add onions and cook stirring frequently, until they begin to wilt. Adjust the heat so that the onions do not brown.
3 Add wine, honey, thyme, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil and simmer until the onions are quite soft, about 20 minutes.
4 Taste the sauce; it should be slightly sweet, but balanced by the acidity of the wine. Adjust with honey or vinegar as needed. Cook the sauce for another 5 minutes. Keep the sauce warm.
5 Season the duck breasts and grill or broil them to the medium-rare stage,about 3 to 4 minutes per side.

SERVING
6 Serve the breasts on top of the onion sauce.
