You haven't done dinner in Portland until you've done dinner at Le Pigeon, James Beard Rising Star Chef Gabriel Rucker's outrageously popular outpost. Combining the usual suspects with something totally unexpected is Rucker's game, so where you'd expect chicken in these nuggets…is of course, duck.

This recipe is a great way to introduce your kids to duck. After they try these nuggets, they’ll be on a one-way street to post-chickendom and will request this dish forevermore.
