Combine the reduced-fat peanut butter, chicken stock, reduced-fat coconut milk, low-sodium soy sauce, rice vinegar and Tabasco in a small bowl. Whisk until smooth and set aside. (This can be made up to 48 hours in advance and refrigerated).

Dr’s Notes:

The canned coconut milk used in this recipe is a reduced-fat version. This will sometimes be labeled “light” or “lite” coconut milk. There is a big difference between regular coconut milk, at 45 grams of fat per cup, and the light version, at about 12 grams of fat per cup. In both regular and light coconut milk most of the fat is highly saturated, so I always try to use coconut milk sparingly.
