just cook as you normally would, a chicken, i think

can squeeze orange over, they are quite fatty so if you have a rack to put on would help, but they are delicious, I found they didnt take as long to cook as they suggested.

Just do it the same as you would a chicken. They take about 10% longer cooking in general.

I regularly roast a whole one though these days whole roasted ones from our local TaiPing market are pretty good. You can also get half roasted ones there too. Our family fav is a noodly soup with sliced roast duck and for me some fresh chopped chilli. Or wrapped with a little sourkraut or Kim Chee is rice paper then steamed a little.
