What You Need

cup  KRAFT Classic CATALINA Dressing
cup  maple-flavored or pancake syrup
Tbsp.  chopped fresh rosemary
 roasting chicken (3 lb.)
lb.  fresh asparagus spears, trimmed

Make It

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 on breastbone to flatten chicken. Place, skin-side up, in shallow dish; tuck in wings. Brush with remaining dressing mixture. Refrigerate 2 hours to marinate, turning chicken occasionally.

HEAT grill to medium heat. Cover grate with heavy-duty foil; spray with cooking spray. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Place chicken, breast-side down, on foil. Grill 45 min. or until chicken is done (165ºF), turning after 10 min. 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. Slice chicken; serve with asparagus.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Substitute 1 tsp. dried rosemary leaves for the chopped fresh rosemary.
To shorten the cook time, remove breastbone from chicken, then cut chicken lengthwise in half before grilling as directed.
Make Ahead
Chicken can be marinated in refrigerator up to 24 hours before grilling as directed.
