Went to dinner with a friend at a resort where the food is supposed to be very good. It was very busy, we wanted to sit outside to enjoy the fading sun in one of the only sunny days we have had this month. We found the last table with alas no chairs but some wait staff found us some ( I think he was just helping out as he mentioned to everyone who came out to the deck area, how they were short handed tonight) the table needed to be bussed, but we were grateful to sit down. We were told that because of the "shorthandedness" it could be a little while before we would be served. We did get some water and cutlery after about 10 minutes. Our dink order was finally taken after we had been there about 15 min. We put in an order for our appetizer of seafood gumbo at the same time, lest we never see our server again. our gumbo came about 15 minutes later, wine came after we were halfway thru our soup. We ordered halibut and chips. When it arrived and we began to eat, it became quite clear to us that it was not Halibut, we both felt it was much too moist and not meaty enough to be halibut we told our waitress who apologized and said the kitchen was quite crazy and she would be happy to take it back and make sure we got halibut. In the meantime we had finished our wine and were never asked if we would like another, the new meal came out and I asked the waitress to bring more wine when she had a moment. We were just finishing our meals when she brought more wine. The fish in the second meal wasn't any different than in the first meal. Perhaps it was halibut and perhaps it was not..... Waitress said she had watched it being pulled from the halibut bin......oh well she did offer us dessert "on her". But we declined as we didn't think she should have to make up for the kitchen's problem. I still don't think it was halibut it sure looked and tasted like Cod! ( cod was significantly less expensive than halibut) on a brighter note, the seafood gumbo was excellent and the 14 Hands
Chardonnay was good. I really should post this in venting!

Try it with boneless, skinless chicken thighs--moist and a smaller portion.

Thank you Steve

I will put the recipe on later so you can give it a go!

The chicken thigh is coated in egg, flour and pano breadcrumbs and then deep fried, very nice texture and taste and the orange sauce is so sweet and has so many flavours coming through..it really does taste like a meal from a chinese restaurant

That sounds, and looks, so good....!! I've been craving orange chicken and almost ordered recently from the local Chinese restaurant that I love. I'll watch for your recipe, Kylie.
