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
Dieting made easy
When deciding on a weight loss program, it is essential to try to restrict your intake of salt, fat and refined carbohydrate.
The case against low carb diets
Its popular as hell, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Remember, one point that is usually overlooked, it is very hard (although certainly not impossible) for vegetarians to follow a reduced carbohydrate diet.
Eliminating carbs might mean missing out on vital nutrients from healthy foods which must be part of any well adjusted diet, specifically those obtained from grains, vegetables and fruits.
Foods containing carotenes
(includes parsley, rose hip puree and tomato ketchup)
These colorful healthy superfoods contain alpha-carotene and beta-carotene believed by doctors play a key role in cancer prevention, specifically those cancers involving the stomach and lesophagus. Many are low in calories, so are ideal for including in your diet.
