1. Preheat your oven to 420°F (210°C). Lightly oil a baking pan. Season chicken breasts generously on both sides with salt and pepper.

2. Arrange seasoned chicken breasts in the baking pan. Whisk lemon zest and juice, garlic, mustard, Italian spices, cumin, half cilantro and sugar in a medium bowl. Slowly whisk in 1/4 cup oil until emulsified. Season with salt and lots of fresh cracked pepper.

3. Pour the sauce over chicken and arrange potatoes and asparagus around chicken. Drizzle the veggies with the remaining sauce. Top each chicken breasts with a slice of lemon.

4. Transfer in the oven and bake, loosely covered with foil for 35 minutes, until chicken and potatoes are done. Remove foil and bake for 5 minutes more to crisp up the edges. Remove from oven and serve immediately, garnished with remaining cilantro. Enjoy!
