Asparagus:

  2. For the asparagus: Place a rimmed baking sheet in the oven and preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  1. For the orange citrus glaze: Whisk together the orange juice, orange zest, honey, oregano, sherry vinegar, 2 large pinches of salt and a pinch of pepper. Slowly incorporate the canola oil to create an emulsion. Yield: about 1 cup
  2. For the chicken: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and set a rack over the sheet.
  3. Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Coat the chicken with the canola oil and generously sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place on the rack set over the baking sheet and roast in the oven until cooked through and the internal temperature is 165 degrees F, 40 to 50 minutes depending on the size of the chicken. In the last 10 minutes of cooking, brush the chicken with 2/3 cup of the orange citrus glaze in 5 minutes intervals. Let rest 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
