1/3 cup reduced-fat peanut butter
1 tablespoon chopped peeled fresh ginger
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
1 to 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper

Preparation

Shave carrot lengthwise into thin strips using a vegetable peeler.

Combine 1/3 cup broth, peanut butter, ginger, soy sauce, honey, pepper, and garlic; stir with a whisk until smooth.

Place chicken in a large saucepan; add 1 2/3 cups broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 4 minutes or until chicken is done. Remove from heat; let stand 20 minutes.
