Add a cinnamon stick to the broth while simmering for a more aromatic taste.
Thinly slice the duck and set aside. Heat the oil in a pan and fry the chilli, spring onion and pak choi for 3 mins until wilted.

Meanwhile pour the stock into a large pan with the soy and sugar and bring to the boil. Simmer for 5 minutes then add the duck slices and cook for a further 2 minutes until cooked through. Stir though the coriander and the pak choi mixture.
