Weight Watchers Duck Tzimmes


  • 2 (4-ounce) fully cooked duck legs confit
  • 5 large carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup pitted prunes, quartered
  • ½ cup dried cherries
  • ¼ cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Adjust the racks to divide the oven into thirds. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 9
  2. × 13-inch baking pan with nonstick spray.
  3. Remove any white fat and all the skin from the duck legs confit. Pull off the meat and shred with your hands or two forks. You should have about 1½ cups of meat. Place the meat in a large bowl and combine with the carrots, sweet potatoes, prunes, and cherries.
  4. Whisk the broth, honey, salt, cinnamon, and garlic powder in a small bowl until smooth. Pour over the duck and vegetables; toss to coat. Pour this mixture and any juices into the baking pan.
  5. Cover the pan with foil and bake in the lower third of the oven, tossing every 15 minutes, until the vegetables are tender, about 1 hour and 10 minutes. Let stand, uncovered, for about 5 minutes before serving.
