Break out the grill, friends! Summer is here! And I’m here to share my Chicken Marinade that you’ll be making all summer long. It’s packed with flavor and so incredibly delicious! I make a few lighter ingredient swaps in this recipe, like Mazola® Corn Oil instead of butter, and the result is a deliciously guilt free chicken that people request from me on the regular. I love using Mazola because it has a neutral taste that allows the super flavorful ingredients in this recipe to shine. Plus, it’s one of my healthy swaps since a clinical study showed Mazola Corn Oil reduces cholesterol 2x more than extra virgin olive oil. To learn more about this claim, see Mazola.com.

To start, I grab a large bowl and place a large zip closure bag inside. The base is Mazola Corn Oil, so I start with that (swapping for oil rather than butter, remember we’re keeping things light!). Mazola Corn Oil is an all-purpose, cholesterol free cooking oil that’s a smart heart-healthy choice for my family. I can use it for a variety of uses including baking, grilling, sautéing, stir frying, or mixing up a dressing or marinade like this one. It also has a smoke point higher than most cooking oils (at 450°F) and performs well in a variety of cooking applications. Many people may not realize that all cooking oils have a smoke point that, once exceeded, not only negatively affect the food’s flavor, but nutritional value too. That was my long winded way of saying: use Mazola Corn Oil; especially in this recipe.
Next I add in some low sodium soy sauce (swapping low sodium for regular helps keep this recipe light), Worcestershire sauce, and lemon juice.
To keep things light, I swap some brown sugar for honey. Then I add rosemary, mustard, black pepper, and garlic powder.
I add in the chicken and sip the bag shut, then give everything a gentle shake to ensure all the flavors mix together.
The bowl goes into the fridge for at least eight hours, but I prefer overnight. The chicken can be baked if you’re rained out, but it’s so good grilled over charcoal. It just adds a little somethin’ somethin’ to the flavor of the chicken. Smoky, zesty, delicious chicken.
