Ajam Panggang (Indonesian Barbecued Chicken) Recipe
3 lb broiler chicken
1 cup kecap (or ketjap) manis*
2 garlic cloves - peeled and mashed
2 tbsp fresh lime juice
1/2 cup melted, unsalted butter
1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger
1 tsp sambal oelek**
1 package kroepoek oedang***
1 cornstarch to thicken - marinade fo, r sauce
*Sweet soy sauce.
**Hot pepper sauce.
Note: Ingredients from Indonesia are available at many Dutch,
Chinese, Vietnamese and Indonesian specialty stores. This...dish is
good with Nasi Goreng (fried rice).
Cut chicken into 8 pieces. Combine remaining ingredients, except
shrimp puffs, in large bowl. Add chicken pieces; toss to coat.
Marinate 2 hours at room temperature, stirring occasionally. Remove
chicken pieces from marinade (reserving some of the marinade for
basting and the rest for sauce).
Roast, uncovered, at 400 F. for 35 to 40 minutes or until done,
basting as needed. If browning too quickly, cover with foil. (In
summer, barbecue over charcoal fire.)
Heat reserved marinade with cornstarch until thickened and serve as
sauce, if desired. Serve with shrimp puffs on the side. For these,
simply deep-fry in hot fat or oil (375 F. on fat thermometer),
draining at once on paper towels. The chips will puff up as soon as
they hit the fat.
Yield: 4 servings on its own, 6 as part of an Indonesian rice table.

Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
If you enjoy eating, but want to get in shape and improve your overall vitality, then, as most people know, you need to start a thoughtfully prepared well-balanced meal plan. In a perfect world, this needs to contain 5 standard portions of grains, fruit and vegetables daily and embrace the right proportion of food types.
Some lower carb diet tips:
* Make low carb bread crumbs for deep fried or oven baked foods.
While you may be able to buy reduced carb bread crumbs, you may make them at home by simply using reduced carbohydrate bread. Simply toast the reduced carbohydrate bread in a gas or electric oven on a baking tray. Once it is well browned, process it in your blender. Keep in a tupperware jar or container.
* Use soya flour or baking mix.
When you require flour for baked goods, substitute soy flour or a soya baking mix such as Atkins soy baking mix. In most cases, you may adapt your most popular recipes that use standard wheat flour to use these alternatives.
Brassicas, Wonder foods that aid Dieting
(includes Arugula, Broccoli, Mizuna and Daikon)
Vegetablesi in the brassica family are full of vitamins (eg.folate and vit c), minerals (including potassium and selenium), isothiocyanates, antioxidents and indole-3-carbinol.
In addition to their many other great health properties, the minerals, vitamins and nutrients in these are thought to significantly lower the risk of getting cancer.
