In a nonstick saute pan, brown the skin sides of the duck breasts in the oil over moderate heat for 3 minutes.
Add the chicken stock, corn syrup, star anise, chilies, garlic, lime juice, and fish sauce.
Cook over moderate heat for 5 to 7 minutes or until the sauce is slightly thick and the duck is still pink in the center.
Remove the duck, leaving the sauce in the pan over very low heat.
Place the duck on a cutting surface and let stand at room temperature for 5 minutes before slicing.
