Peanut sauce is one of my favorite yummy things. It's great on just about anything-pasta, pork, chicken. My husband says it would make cardboard taste good! It's very versatile, easy to make and inexpensive.
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter, not old fashioned style or freshly ground
- 1 (14 ounce) can chicken broth
- 1⁄4 cup fresh lime juice
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 7 teaspoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons peeled fresh ginger
- 1⁄2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- Place peanut butter in heavy medium saucepan.
- Slowly add chicken broth, then all other ingredients.
- Stir over medium heat until smooth and thick, about 6 minutes.
- Can be stored in refrigerator 3 days until ready to use.
- Reheat before serving.
This is a great recipe for many reasons: simple to prepare, great tasting, versatile uses and most of all no "exotic" ingredients. Most asian sauce recipes call for ingredients that might be only used once and then what do you do with the rest? Not this one. Thanks!
So good. I used this to make peanut butter chicken, I just fried up some chicken chunks and tossed them into the sauce....my family loved it. Thank you for sharing your recipe with us.
This is a tasty, easy to make peanut sauce. I made Thai chicken skewers and coconut rice and this sauce complemented the chicken really well. I used ginger paste (because I'm lazy) and halved the recipe. I expected it to be just okay because of the lack of coconut milk but it was great! I especially like that it's really quick and easy. Thanks for sharing!
