The Best Indonesian Peanut Sauce

This recipe comes from the vegetarian times and is actually a vegan recipe, though I am not either of those things :-). I made this because I just LOVE peanut sauces and this is the best one I have had, not to mention how simple it was to make! I used reduced fat peanut butter and it didn't seem to affect the recipe at all. It will keep up to a week or so in the fridge and personally, I like to either toss it with noodles and chicken or serve it with chicken chunks over brown rice. I don't like things spicy and this was perfect. I also saute the chicken chunks in 1 tsp sesame oil just to enhance the flavor. It makes quite a bit of sauce, I would say it serves 6! Enjoy!
