Low Fat Peanut Sauce

READY IN: 8mins
Recipe by BelovedRooster

I created this recipe as an answer to the high fat peanut sauces in restaurants and in most recipes. It is a touch sweeter than most, but I find the soy sauce and the cayenne dampens the sweetness considerably.

I made this tonight and it's really good. You said it was sweet, but I didn't think so (no sweetener/sugar in the ingredients. I added two sweeteners to the sauce. This was great and thickened up nicely. I made it to go over grilled chicken. Thanks for a quick and yummy recipe!
