Grilling is a summer right of passage. Grilled food is easy and delicious and one of my favorite things about summer. A great grilled dish (like these Hawaiian Kabobs) starts with a great marinade, and a great marinade starts with Mazola® Corn Oil. Why Mazola? Well, it has a neutral taste that lets the flavor of the food stand out. It also has a much higher smoke point than other oils (450 degrees F). Did you know that once an oil goes above it’s smoke point, it can negatively affect the food’s flavor and nutritional value? It is also a cholesterol free cooking oil that is a smart heart-healthy* choice for your family. *See Mazola.com for more information on the relationship between corn oil and heart health. In fact, 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. Mazola Corn Oil has a variety of uses, including baking, grilling, sautéing, stir frying, or mixing up a marinade or dressing. With cholesterol-blocking plant sterols, Mazola Corn Oil is a heart-healthy choice for salad dressings, marinades and more.

You already know that I use Mazola Corn Oil as my base ingredient instead of extra virgin olive oil because it has more cholesterol-blocking plant sterols than other oils, but I have a couple other tricks up my sleeve that make this marinade really go the extra mile! Most other teriyaki marinade recipes use refined sugar but not this one! Instead of table sugar, I use a combination of pineapple juice and raw honey to give my teriyaki marinade a little hint of sweetness. It truly makes this recipe stand out! You can use this teriyaki marinade on pretty much any meat or veggie, but I especially like to use it on these AMAZING Hawaiian Kabobs.
I know you are dying for the recipe, so here you go! Teriyaki Marinade:
- 1 cup soy sauce (coconut aminos are okay too if you aren’t doing soy)
- 2 tsp Ground Ginger
- 1 tsp Garlic Powder
- 6 Tbsp Honey
- 3 Tbsp Arrowroot Powder or cornstarch
- 1/2 cup pineapple juice
- 1/4 cup Water
- 4 Tbsp Mazola Corn Oil
Combine soy sauce, corn oil, ginger, garlic, pineapple juice and honey in a small sauce pan and heat over medium heat. Mix water and cornstarch and slowly add it to the saucepan, stirring constantly. Keep stirring until thickened.
Hawaiian Kabobs: Ingredients:
- Red Pepper Bell Pepper
- 4 Chicken Breasts
- Fresh Pineapple
- Red Onion
- Teriyaki Marinade (recipe above)
Instructions: Chop up all the veggies, pineapple and chicken into large chunks. Put everything in a plastic zipper bag and pour the marinade in. Zip the bag and put in the fridge for at least 60 minutes. After 60 minutes (or more if you prefer), remove the bag from the fridge and put the veggies, pineapple and chicken chunks on skewers. Baste with remaining marinade. Grill on your charcoal or gas grill for approx. 10-15 minutes or until the chicken reaches a temp of 180 degrees F. Don’t they look simply amazing?
