12 Tasty Side Dishes for Rotisserie Chicken

Rotisserie chicken is a delectable and mouthwatering main course that serves as the ideal centerpiece for your dinner table. However, deciding what to serve with your rotisserie chicken might be difficult.

So, what are the finest sides to serve with chicken? Fortunately, we've done the research and compiled a list of 13 delectable side dishes to serve alongside rotisserie chicken!

 

Mashed Potato

Mashed potatoes are a classic comfort meal that pairs perfectly with rotisserie chicken. It's also extremely adaptable and can be readily customized to your preferences.

 

You can make a rich and creamy mash with butter and milk, or add a dollop of yogurt for a tangy variation. Alternatively, omit the dairy and use a vegan option for a smooth and creamy mash.

Sauteed Mushrooms

This side is so easy to make that you could do it with your eyes closed (disclaimer: never cook with your eyes closed). Sauteed mushrooms require little preparation and only a few minutes to cook.

Add sliced mushrooms, garlic, salt, and pepper to a pan with oil and butter. Cook the mushrooms for 5-10 minutes in the juices that they exude.

To give a twist to your mushrooms, combine sesame oil with the butter and sauté the mushrooms with a small splash of soy sauce.

Biscuits and Gravy

Biscuits and gravy, a southern classic, is a delightful and warming comfort meal on its own. However, the recipe also works well as a side dish with rotisserie chicken.

The gravy, which is made with flour, milk, and typically bacon or sausage drippings, serves as a delectable sauce for the chicken. Meanwhile, the soft and fluffy biscuits bring everything together to create a gastronomic marvel.

While it isn't the healthiest option, nothing beats biscuits and gravy for turning your rotisserie chicken into a full-fledged comfort dinner.

Sweetcorn

ooking for something light and nutritious? Take a look at a bowl of collard greens. These leafy greens are quick and simple to prepare and are high in vitamins and minerals.

Simply cut your greens and sauté them in a skillet of heated olive oil until they shrink and the edges crisp. Finish cooking with a sprinkle of salt, garlic, and red pepper flakes.

To end, sprinkle the cooked greens with lemon juice for a zesty kick.

Green Bean Casserole

Green bean casserole is a pleasant accompaniment to chicken, despite its popularity as a Thanksgiving side dish.

Green bean casserole is produced by combining green beans, fried onions, and cream of mushroom soup (many recipes call for Campbell's, although any brand or homemade soup would do).

Replace the Thanksgiving turkey with rotisserie chicken and you're good to go!

Roasted Vegetables

Roasted vegetables are another quick and easy recipe that tastes wonderful and goes well with chicken. Carrots, parsnips, and red onion slices are some of the greatest vegetables to use, but feel free to add your favorites as well.

While roasting your vegetables may take some time depending on what you're using, the wait is well worth it. Add herbs like rosemary, thyme, and sage to the vegetables before roasting to infuse the flavors.

Use a pastry brush to coat the vegetables in honey, which develops into a sweet and sticky coating that complements the savory chicken.

Baked Sweet Potato

Sweet potato is a healthier and (unsurprisingly) sweeter variant of the standard potato that is equally delicious.

Another simple recipe with minimal ingredients is baked sweet potato. Simply sprinkle olive oil over cubed or sliced sweet potato, season with salt and pepper, and bake.

To add a tangy flavor to this simple recipe, dip the sweet potato cubes in barbecue or jerk sauce.

Mexican Rice

Mexican rice is somewhat spicy, flavorful, and goes well with rotisserie chicken. This is the side dish to serve if you want to spice things up a little.

Mexican rice is made with white or brown rice, tomatoes, garlic, onion, and chilies. It typically incorporates mixed beans for extra protein.

Because rice is so adaptable, you can add or subtract items as you see fit.

Potato Gratin

In many respects, potato gratin is similar to mashed potatoes. The main distinction is how it is prepared.

Potato gratin is a dish comprised of thin potato slices that have been soaked and cooked in a creamy sauce. The top is frequently crisped and layered with cheese, while the middle softens and fluffys as it cooks.

Try potato gratin if you want something a little nicer than normal mashed potatoes.

Halloumi Fries

Halloumi fries are a deliciously simple cheesy side dish that only requires a few ingredients to make.

Begin with strips of halloumi cut into 1 inch thick rectangles. Next, combine some flour with your preferred seasonings (my favorites are paprika, cumin, and garlic powder).

Dip your halloumi fries in the seasoned flour until well coated, then fry them. Place the fries in a frying pan with hot oil and cook, flipping often, until the outside is crispy and golden.

Serve with sweet chili or barbecue sauce, if desired.

Cauliflower Hot Wings

Cauliflower is a popular vegetarian alternative to hot wings.

The vegetable florets are covered in batter and fried till crispy. They're then dipped in a spicy sauce and baked again for a hot and sticky coating.

The crunchy cauliflower is a far healthier and lighter alternative to chicken, and these 'wings' go great with rotisserie chicken.

If hot sauce isn't your thing, you can coat your wings with anything from buffalo to barbecue sauce.
