Easy Thai Peanut Sauce

Gayleen, this one's for you! :) EASY. And I know you like Thai peanut dressing.

2/3 C peanut butter
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp soy
1 crushed clove of garlic
1 tsp curry powder
3/4 C low-sodium chicken broth

Mix all ingredients in a small saucepan or microwave safe bowl. Heat, stirring periodically. It's fairly thick - good for dipping chicken strips or any meat (meat-on-a-stick?). If you plan to use it as a salad dressing, thin it with more broth.

You can use garlic powder instead of a clove. I'm usually not picky about "low-sodium", but with this recipe--DO IT. Or...eliminate the soy until you've taste-tested it. It may be plenty salty already! Oh, and I used a honey-peanut butter that was DELICIOUS! You could just add a tablespoon of honey to the recipe...
