  • Mix first 3 ingredients until well blended; reserve 1/4 cup for later use.
  • Place chicken, breast-side down, on cutting board. Use kitchen shears to remove backbone. Turn chicken over; press down on breastbone to flatten chicken. Place in shallow dish; tuck wings under chicken. Brush with remaining dressing mixture. Refrigerate 2 hours to marinate, occasionally turning chicken over.
  • Heat barbecue to medium heat. Cover grate with heavy-duty foil; spray with cooking spray. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Grill chicken, breast-side down, 10 min. or until grill marked; turn over. Grill 35 min. or until chicken is done (170ºF). Transfer to cutting board. Tent with foil; let stand 10 min. Meanwhile, brush asparagus with reserved dressing mixture. Grill 6 to 8 min. or until crisp-tender, turning occasionally.


To shorten the cook time, remove breastbone from chicken, then cut chicken lengthwise in half before grilling as directed.
