On my recent trip to the grocery store I spotted the Mazola® Corn Oil and after reading the statement above, I decided to try it.

The first thing I made were these Easy Chicken And Asparagus Foil Packets.

Mazola® cooking oil is made of 100% pure oil with no additives, and brings great flavor to your food.

Did you know that all Mazola® oils are cholesterol free and have become a healthful tradition in America?

What I like about Mazola is that it  has a smoke point higher than most cooking oils at 450°F . It performs well in a variety of cooking applications, including stir-frying, sautéing, grilling and even baking.

I can’t wait to try it in some baking recipes.

Many home cooks may not realize that all cooking oils have a smoke point that, once exceeded, not only negatively affect the food’s flavor and nutritional value.

Mazola Corn Oil has a neutral taste that won’t negatively impact the taste of ingredients, so it lets the natural flavor of your food stand out. It is the perfect oil for every day cooking.

I’ve been thinking to make some simple, lighter and easy to make every day meals. Foil packets are perfect for every day dishes, both cooked it the oven and on the grill. No mess, no clean up, but still wholesome and delicious food.

Last time I made a foil packet dinner, I used beef, asparagus, seasoning and butter. This time I decided to swap chicken for beef and Mazola Corn Oil for butter for a better for your dish.

This Easy Chicken And Asparagus Foil Packets Recipe turned out perfect! My family loved it!

I did was butterfly cut each chicken breast, so it cooks evenly and faster. Then brushed with a mixture of Mazola Corn Oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano and lemon juice. Placed on a piece of foil, added the asparagus, top with a lemon slice and wrap tightly.

You can either grill or bake these packets in the oven. I prefer grilling, whenever I can do it, because it takes twice less time and the meat still stays juicy.

I grilled these Easy Chicken And Asparagus Foil Packets this time, since the weather wasn’t too cold, but if it was I would have cooked them in the oven.

The use of Mazola Cooking Oil in this recipe let the natural flavors of the chicken and asparagus stand out and turned them into a great, effortless, better for you family meal!
