* Available at Asian markets and in the Asian section of some
supermarkets. If you can't find them don't worry, the recipe will
still work OK.
The Javanese seem to like their chicken pretty well done and chewy. I
prefer mine a little more tender and fry it for a bit less than ten
minutes. It has been a while since I made this, but I believe about
seven minutes is enough for me. This chicken is delicious and also
good cold. Make lots of it.

Food Tips of the Week
In deciding on a meal plan, it is essential to also make sure you cut down your ingestion of refined carbohydrate, fat and salt.
Some low carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* You can create really nice smoothies with reduced carbohydrate yogurt.
Admittedly, you can't really describe it as cooking, but if you are missing your smoothies you can throw them together with reduced carb yogurt and fruit. Obviously, you will need to make sure you use only fruit that is low in carbs and use the whole fruit as the fiber is important too.
* Make low carb bread crumbs for deep fried foods.
Whilst you can sometimes buy low carb breadcrumbs, you can make them at home by using reduced carbohydrate bread. Simply toast the reduced carb bread in your oven on a sheet of baking paper. Once it is quite hard and crispy, process it in the food processor or blender. To store, keep in an airtight jar or container.
