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
One useful tip is to drink plenty of water. From time to time at some stage in a hectic morning, you guess that you want a snack but in fact you might just need a refreshing glass of water or orange squash. The feelings of needing food and needing a drink are quite similar, but one of the two can lead to a broken diet and the other is ok.
Some lower carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* Eat regular meals
Most low carb recipes are, you won't be surpised to learn, low in carbohydrates. Your body needs energy, and carbs are a highly efficient source of energy. A lower carbohydrate diet requires more care in monitoring you energy intake, as the energy provided by fat or protein is less efficient.
* Food labels can be misleading
Watch out for food packaging that boasts to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information on the back of the package. Many are only a little decreased and in some instances still greater than a competitors usual brand. Also, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are the same.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes garlic, onions and spring onions)
The onion, leek and garlic family is high in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe might be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Although there is not enough, hard medical proof available, allyl sulphides are also thought by many experts to reduce the symptoms of colds, sterilization and diabetes.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are also good for weight loss, so should be included in your weight loss program.
