Honey Stung Chicken Breast Satay

This is a sweetheart of a dish sure to be loved by kids. First, its on a stick. Second, it is lightly sweetened with honey. Moms will love it because it is grilled, so its low fat and healthy. So kids eat up. Adults like it too and you can always change up the marinade to suit a more adult palate.

This is a great quick and easy dish or appetizer to enjoy with your Valentine. Short cooking time and great taste make for a memorable evening.

  • 3-4 boneless and skinless chicken breast or you can use chicken tender, about a 1lb.
  • 1 tsp of paprika
  • 2 tsp of minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp of honey
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
  • wooden sticks, that have been soaked in water for at least 15 minutes


  1. Remove any visible fat and rinse the chicken breast.
  2. With a sharp knife, cut the chicken breast into thin, about 1/2 inch long strips. Each breast should give you about 5 strip
  3. Place the paprika, garlic, honey, salt and pepper in a container which can be covered and mix together.
  4. Add the chicken strips and coat them thoroughly with the mixture.
  5. Drizzle olive oil over the chicken until it is all coated.
  6. Let the chicken marinade for at least 30 minutes. The longer it marinades, the tastier it will be. It can be left overnight.
  7. At this point you can make an extra batch to freeze so you can have a quick and fast meal anytime. Freezing the portions flat will ensure that the defrosting process is quick. You could probably have it ready to put on the grill in less than 2 hours.
  8. Using an electric grill, set the cooking temperature to about 350F. When the grill is hot, coat the surface with olive oil. You can use a silicone brush to spread the olive oil evenly over the surface.
  9. Skewer each chicken strip on to the wooden stick. Make sure that the strips are fairly flat which will make grilling a much easier task.
  10. Place each skewered chicken on to the hot grill and cook each side about 5-7 minutes. You will know its time to flip it when you see that the edges are beginning to lose its translucent look.
  11. Serve with red rice and veggies. Makes it a healthy, quick complete meal.
