Ludwig says there is no excuse for making a dull-looking dish. He is also fond of reusing recipes, substituting in-season produce for ingredients no longer available. White asparagus is his favorite vegetable, but this menu is just too yummy to limit to springtime. Green spears work just as well.
For the most efficient preparation, create the asparagus while boiling the potatoes and carrots, then grill the chicken while the orange-lemon butter is reducing.
