Peanut Sauce

Whenever I see peanut butter in a recipe that is for a main dish, I automatically think yuck. I gave this a try and it was yummy. It had a nice creamy flavor and I didn't notice the peanut butter so much. Give it a try, it is good. I had it with fettuccine noodles, chicken, yellow squash, zucchini, broccoli and carrots.

Peanut Sauce

In a food processor combine 2 tbsp peanut butter, 1/4 cup canola oil, 2-4 cloves of garlic (depending on taste), approx. 1/8 cup rice vinegar, 1 tbsp teriyaki sauce, 1 tsp spicy mustard, 1/4-1/2 tsp of red curry paste. Mix. If the sauce seems to thick add 1-2 tbsp of water.
Enjoy the sauce mixed with chicken & rice or a mixture of pasta, chicken and veggies.

I wonder if this could work with Chicken Satay (Thai grilled chicken cababs). I love everything peanut butter. Perhaps I will serve this as a drink.

here's another peanut sauce recipe:

whisk the following ingredients in a saucepan: 3 c. chicken or vegetable broth, 2 T. peanut butter, 2 T. soy sauce, 2 t. sesame oil, 1 T. hot sauce (optional), a dash of crushed red pepper (optional).

simmer 8-10 minutes.

you can also add 2 T. lime juice (especially great if you want to use the sauce as a salad dressing).

The sauce sounds good for kabobs. I will have to try that other peanut sauce. Thanks!
