"This recipe..appeared in the Toronto Star many years ago as a result
of a contest to create a sauce similar to Swiss Chalet's barbecue
sauce. Home economist Kay Spicer created the winning recipe."
Anne's note: Swiss Chalet is a chain of Canadian chicken restaurants.
This sauce is brushed on the chicken before cooking and served at the
table in small containers to dip the chicken pieces in.
Pour cups of water and tomato juice into 1 1/2 qt saucepan. Add
bouillon cube, paprika, sugar, salt, basil, parsley, poultry
seasoning, thyme, ginger, mustard, onion powder, bay leaf,
Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco. Stir well or whisk to mix. Bring to
a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Remove bay leaf. Stir
in lemon juice.
Mix cornstarch and 1 Tbsp water to smooth paste. Add to mixture and
cook, stirring constantly, about 2 minutes until sauce thickens.
Whisk in oil.

Food Tips of the Week
Recognise the difference between hunger and thirst. At times when going through a hectic day, you imagine you feel hunger but if truth be told you just need a restorative tumbler of water or cranberry juice. The feelings of hunger and thirst are quite alike, but one can result in weight gain and the alternative is fine.
Some low carb diet pointers:
* Know what is in your food
Be sceptical of the food label that claims 'low carb' - check the nutritional information figures on the rear of the can or package. Many are only slightly reduced and in some cases still greater than a competitors normal brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - often the carbs are identical.
* Dietary fiber is important
Cutting the carbs in your meals usually leads to reduction in fiber also. Look at low carbohydrate recipes that are high in fiber to redress this.

Foods containing allyl sulfides are also good for weight loss, so should be included in your weight loss program.
