Here's how you do it

  1. Preheat the oven to 160℃.
  2. Score the fat of the duck breasts with a sharp knife, in a criss cross pattern.
  3. Put a frying pan on to a medium heat, season the duck breasts with salt and place them skin side down. Leave for about 10 minutes, to allow the fat to gently melt and for the skin to crisp up.
  4. Place the duck breasts in the oven for 6-8 minutes, for medium-rare, then leave to rest, covered.
  5. To make the beans, fry the pancetta in a pan until crisp, then remove with a slotted spoon.
  6. Sweat the shallot in the bacon fat until soft, then add the garlic.
  7. Turn up the heat, add the sherry vinegar and allow to bubble for a few seconds.
  8. Return the bacon to the pan and add the beans and chicken stock, leave to boil for 5 minutes.
  9. Stir in the mustard, thyme and little gem lettuce. Cook for a few more minutes, then season with salt and pepper.
  10. Slice the duck breast and serve alongside the beans.
