This is not an authentic Asian dish, but "Asian style" with the ingredients used. The sauce is delicious... Many times I have doubled it as everyone loves it. You may vary the vegetables you use (try pea pods, bean sprouts, or bok choy), and you may substitute cooked pork or shrimp for the chicken. A wonderful meal or potluck contribution. It always gets rave reviews.

  1. Mix together dressing ingredients: peanut butter, ginger, soy sauce, rice vinegar, chili garlic sauce, brown sugar, grated ginger, red pepper flakes, chicken broth and salt and pepper in a blender or food processor until smooth and well blended. (*if dressing is too thick, you may add a little more chicken broth).
