    This is quite different from the Chicken in a Pot recipe already posted (#7202), which calls for tomato and very little liquid. I like this alternative because it provides you with a whole, cooked chicken and stock for use in soup or whatever you wish. And maybe you disagree, but I think home-made chicken broth is noticeably better than the canned variety. I use this recipe specifically with soup in mind, but it's also an easy way to cook a chicken and results in a moist, tasty bird that is good re-heated. There are recipes for this that call for the chicken to be cooked in stock instead of water. In my experience this is unnecessary since the chicken and vegetables create one in the cooking process. For this recipe, it would definitely defeat the purpose. I suggest altering the seasonings according to your taste or planned use of the broth. This liquid can be used in any soup or stew that calls for chicken stock. Since this recipe results in about 6 cups of liquid, for soup you may want to freeze the first batch and plan on making another. I like to condense it by boiling and reducing the liquid. As if this isn't wordy enough, here are some options for serving. So... Option 1: When this is done cooking, save all the remaining liquid for soup and eat the chicken and vegetables with a supplemental gravy. You can make a gravy from the stock, or from the chicken wingtips, neck and giblets. If you want to do this, put the wingtips etc. into a small saucepan with salt and pepper, and maybe some vegetables like onions, carrots or garlic. Cover this with water and bring to a boil around the same time you start the chicken. Skim off the foam and simmer, adding water as it boils off if necessary. When your chicken is nearly done, take the wingtips and other things out of the gravy liquid and put it back on the stove. Sample it and add salt and pepper to taste. Combine three tablespoons of cornstarch with some water and add it to the liquid, bringing to a boil. Turn it down to low. The gravy should thicken. If you want it thicker, add more cornstarch. For more gravy, add some of the stock from the chicken pot. I like the taste of this gravy, but if you find it bland, add bullion to taste (preferably before the cornstarch). If you do this it's good to make mashed potatoes or add some small whole potatoes to the chicken pot at the beginning-- if you can fit them. Don't add cut-up potatoes since they'll cloud up and thicken your stock. Option 2: Along with the chicken, serve the stock as a soup with dumplings. I have provided a butter dumpling recipe adapted from Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything. The bowls of broth and dumplings make a good first course-- if you do this, the chicken and vegetables may be kept warm on a platter in a 200 degree oven. Or you can slice up the chicken and add it to the bowls with the vegetables for a hearty soup.

    Recipe #115070

    I bought a jar of Kokita brand Nasi Goreng seasoning at the Uwajimaya store in Seattle and it made the best fried rice I had ever eaten. After scraping the last bits from the side of the jar, I didn't want to make the hour drive just for more (although it was tempting), so I improvised based on the ingredients. If you can find it, I highly suggest buying the pre-made product as it makes preparation very simple. After eating Indonesian fried rice I haven't been able to go back to making the more popular Chinese version. What makes this different than Chinese rice is the prominence of chili rather than soy sauce. Shallots, smaller and milder than the onion, are a pleasant addition. I like to add a lot of chili and use fish sauce as the source of saltiness. Many recipes call for shrimp paste, I haven't tried it and think it's just fine without since the fish sauce adds a seafood taste. There are other posted recipes for this dish, but this one is simpler and the eggs can be cooked right in with the rice. This is also great as a vegetarian (even vegan) dish, just omit the shrimp and use fried tofu instead of egg and use soy instead of fish sauce. Warning: this may be spicy for those with more delicate palates.
