    1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
    1 tablespoon soy sauce
    1 cup beef stock or chicken stock, use 1 cube and 1 cup water if necessary
    1 tablespoon grated ginger
    1 garlic clove, minced
    2 teaspoons cornstarch

    Mix the cornstarch in the beef stock, then mix it all in a pan and heat up until thick. This is my basic recipe.

    Generally I add a few pinches of red pepper flakes, and if I have it on hand I will substitute coconut milk for the beef broth and cornstarch.

    Satay sauce isn’t Chinese, it’s Indonesian or Malaysian.
    Sweat off grated garlic, root ginger in a little peanut oil. Add chopped chilis or dried chili flakes to taste. Add crunchy or smooth peanut butter and bring to the desired consistency by adding coconut milk. Easy!

    1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into 8 strips
    1 tablespoon light brown sugar
    2 1/2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
    2 teaspoons bottled ground fresh ginger (such as Spice World)
    1 teaspoon grated lime rind
    1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
    2 garlic cloves, minced

    Sauce:
    1 tablespoon light brown sugar
    1 1/2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
    1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
    2 tablespoons natural-style, reduced-fat creamy peanut butter (such as Smucker’s)
    1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
    1 garlic clove, minced

    Remaining ingredient:
    Cooking spray

    Prepare grill.
    To prepare saté, combine chicken and next 6 ingredients (through 2 garlic cloves) in a medium bowl. Let stand 10 minutes.

    To prepare sauce, combine 1 tablespoon brown sugar and the next 5 ingredients (through 1 garlic clove) in a medium bowl, stirring until sugar dissolves.

    Thread chicken strips onto each of 8 (8-inch) skewers. Place chicken on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 5 minutes on each side or until chicken is done. Serve chicken with sauce.

    Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 2 skewers and 1 tablespoon sauce)
