I absolutely love pairing this Weight Watchers Teriyaki Chicken with the healthy cauliflower fried rice…YES, for YUMMY!

This is also a great dish to serve when you have company coming over. No one will realize how healthy this chicken is because it tastes so good.

How to Make Weight Watchers Teriyaki Chicken

Combine soy sauce, honey, vinegar and spices in a bowl, mixing well to combine.

Place chicken in a baking dish, piercing both sides of each chicken breast with a fork several times.

Pour sauce over chicken and then turn chicken over with tongs a few times to make sure to coat chicken with sauce.

Bake chicken for 30 minutes, basting with sauce from pan every 10 minutes.

Serve over rice (or cauliflower fried rice) or chill chicken breasts to slice and serve over chicken salads or in wraps.  Did I mention this is great in my lunch the next day?

Makes 4 servings of one chicken breast per serving.

How Do You Figure Points for Marinades?

The question comes up a lot…how do you figure points for marinades with Weight Watchers. Some people are afraid of the honey in a teriyaki marinade, but if you think about it…very little actually sticks on the chicken. 

Reading the Marinating 101 from Weight Watchers and doing informal research myself in meetings and groups….most people figure 1 point for marinades. This recipe does have quite a bit of honey so I will count 2 points per chicken breast. 

WEIGHT WATCHERS POINTS

Remember, the chicken breast is zero points…so 2 points per marinated chicken breast for the blue and purple myWW Plans is awesome!!  If you are on the green plan it would be 4 points.

On the current Weight Watchers Program (2023), it is 2 points per chicken breast.

Recipe Notes

There are 25 points if you ingested the entire bowl of teriyaki marinade. Since very little actually stays on the chicken…I usually count 2 points per chicken breast for the sauce for the blue and purple myWW plans. The green plan would be 4 points.

On the current Weight Watcher Program (2023), it is 2 points per chicken breast.
