  1. 4 cups chicken stock, plus more if needed
  2. 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  3. 4 duck legs
  4. ½ teaspoon salt
  5. ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  6. 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  7. 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
  8. 1 celery stalk, roughly chopped
  9. 8 cups Dirty Rice (recipe follows)
  10. Garnish: pickled okra
  1. Preheat oven to 250°.
  2. In a medium saucepan, add chicken stock and soy sauce, and heat over medium heat until warm.
  3. Season duck legs with salt, black pepper, and 1/8 teaspoon cayenne. In a shallow roasting pan, add onion and celery. Place duck legs skin-side up on onion mixture, and add chicken stock mixture. Liquid should come halfway up duck legs. Bake 11/2 to 2 hours, basting every 20 minutes, until legs are browned on top and meat is tender.
  4. Set aside duck, and strain braising liquid. Skim off fat, and cook liquid over medium-high heat until thickened.
  5. Divide Dirty Rice among serving bowls. Add duck, and top with braising liquid and pickled okra, if desired.
