Honey Roasted Chicken Satay With Basil Almond Sauce

A decadent meal with a fantastic flavor profile, this delicious Weight Watchers chicken recipe is sure to be a hit. This satay has traditional Asian ingredients, but with a fresh and lighter twist.

  • 1 lb skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 small bunch fresh basil (about 1-2 cups)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1/4 cup almond butter (I used Justin’s Almond Butter)
  • 1/2 tbsp fresh grated ginger
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • About 1/4 cup water (more or less as desired)
  • Juice from 2 limes
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Mist a large baking dish with an olive oil mister.
  2. Slice chicken breasts into thin fillets, and pound a bit with a meat mallet to get them to about 1/4” thickness. Now cut into medium to large bite sized pieces, and place in the baking dish. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Combine all remaining ingredients (except for 2 of the 3 tbsp of honey) in a food processor, adding water to achieve desired consistency, and process until smooth.
  4. Pour 2/3 of the basil almond sauce over the chicken pieces and toss them well to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour.
  5. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  6. Soak wooden skewers in water for about 10-15 minutes. Then arrange chicken pieces on the skewers, making 8 skewers in total, and return to the baking dish.
  7. Roast chicken skewers in oven for about 10 minutes. Then remove chicken from the oven, and drizzle remaining 2 tbsp honey over the chicken skewers evenly. Return to oven and cook for another 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
  8. Serve immediately with remaining sauce for dipping.
