Cover the chicken with about half of the soy mixture. Reserve the rest. Cover the chicken and sit in the fridge for at least thirty minutes (the longer the better) for the flavors to meld.

Step 4:

Twenty minutes before you plan on cooking dinner, remove the chicken from the fridge.

Step 5:

In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil over a medium high heat. Saute the asparagus and saute until just under done, you don’t want to over cook them. Remove the asparagus from pan. About two to three minutes.
