Peanut Dipping Sauce or Satay Sauce

When you make any kind of a kebob, whether it is beef, chicken or pork on the grill a dipping sauce is a good idea to serve with it.  Sauces with peanut butter…yum…

Peanut Dipping Sauce

  • 1 tsp. peanut oil
  • 1/4 cup green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tsp. sugar (optional – it tastes good without it)
  • juice of 1/2 of a lemon
  • 1 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup peanuts, chopped (optional)
  • Thai style chili sauce (2 or more tsp. or to taste) I like it hot and sweet!

Heat the oil and saute the green onions for a few minutes.  Stir in the peanut butter, chicken broth, sugar, lemon juice, soy sauce and peanuts if desired.  Add the chili sauce and   simmer for about 10 minutes.

I did a taste test on three different peanut sauces I have made as well as a bottled version.  The dipping sauce is in the back and is the thickest.  See recipes Asian Chicken with a Peanut Butter Sauce;  Peanutty Pork Kabobs and Thai Chicken with Rice and Veggies on the Grilll.
