Wrap in plastic wrap and allow to marinate for at least two hours or overnight.

Preheat grill 10 – 15 minutes making sure you oil the grates first, when the grill is hot, cook the chicken approximately four minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165 F and the juices run clear.

Let the chicken rest for 10 minutes and top with reserved Chimichurri Sauce. While you are waiting for the chicken to rest, take the asparagus and toss it in one Tbsp. of olive oil, seasoned with sea salt and fresh ground pepper. Grill until tender, top with a slice of butter.
