How To Make Lemon Honey Chicken Marinade

I love how quick and easy this lemon honey chicken marinade is to throw together. All you have to do is add Mazola Corn Oil, lemon juice, honey, and garlic salt to a measuring cup.

Then, stir it up until everything is mixed well.

Pour the lemon honey marinade over your chicken in a bowl or plastic zip top baggie and pop it in the refrigerator.   Could that be any easier?  You want to let your chicken marinate for at least 4 hours, but over night is best. 

Once your chicken is done marinating, it's time to light up the grill!

One of the great things about using Mazola Corn Oil in this chicken marinade is the high smoke point of 450 degrees.  That means it's great for grilling as well as stir frying at high temperatures. 

How To Grill Your Marinated Chicken

Once your grill is hot, add the chicken.  It should take 15 to 20 minutes to fully cook the chicken depending on how thick the meat is.  Flip at least once half way through to cook both sides.  You'll know the chicken is done if you insert a meat thermometer and it's at a temperature of 165 degrees. 

Remove your chicken from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes before serving.
