  Duck fat/Chicken fat / olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Dry red wine 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Honey 1 Teaspoon (Adjust Quantity As Per Taste)
  Fresh thyme sprig 1
  Bay leaf 1
  Duck breasts 2 , skinned
  Whole duck breasts 2 , skinned, boned and split
  Freshly ground pepper To Taste

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.

6 Serve the breasts on top of the onion sauce.
