  1. Preheat the oven. To make the mustard dressing, mix the white wine vinegar, mustard, garlic, sugar and 2 tbsp olive oil in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  2. Grate 20g of the Parmesan and mix with the rolled oats, rosemary and a pinch of salt and pepper. Use a sharp knife or vegetable peeler to shave the remaining Parmesan and set aside to serve with the salad.
  3. Dust the chicken with the flour and shake off any excess. Dip the chicken in the egg white until thoroughly coated and then coat in the oat mixture. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until cooked through.
  4. 10 minutes before the end of the baking time, preheat the grill, brush 1 tbsp olive oil over the asparagus and grill for 6-8 minutes, or until tender.
  5. To serve, divide the chicken and asparagus between two plates and drizzle half the dressing over the asparagus. Toss the remaining dressing with the watercress and Parmesan shavings and serve on the side.
