Rotisserie chicken is a classic comfort food that always leaves you feeling full and satisfied. It has crispy skin on the outside and juicy, tender meat on the inside, plus it makes dinners so much easier! Whether you choose to buy a rotisserie chicken from the store or order one from your favorite chicken restaurant, you can’t go wrong! And, with a combination of white and dark meat, you can please the whole family.

But what do you serve once you have the rotisserie chicken? You need something to fill out your plate, and you don’t want to ruin the chicken with a mediocre side dish. To complete your rotisserie meal, here are some of the best side dishes to indulge in!

Mashed Potatoes

Mashed potatoes are one of the most loved side dishes - and for good reason! They’re creamy, buttery and filling and pair well with almost any protein. While you can whip up mashed potatoes within minutes using instant potatoes, they taste even better when you make them fresh!

If you’re looking for something that offers the same texture but a bit healthier, opt for mashed sweet potatoes instead. Both types of potatoes are healthy, but sweet potatoes win in terms of micronutrients like Vitamin C, magnesium, calcium, iron and phosphorus. Mashed sweet potatoes can also be sprinkled with a bit of brown sugar.

Garlic Broccoli

Broccoli is packed with antioxidants, minerals and vitamins. Even kids love to eat these tasty “trees,” so you can expect them to round out any plate! But rather than serving steamed broccoli, kick things up a notch with sauteed or oven-roasted garlic broccoli. It’s an easy recipe that complements juicy chicken!

You can also add fresh garlic to string beans. These veggies are high in Vitamin K and calcium, so it’s great if you can get your kids to eat a few of them! Saute the green beans in a bit of olive oil and add garlic, salt and pepper. Fast, easy and inexpensive!

Buttery Cornbread

If you have a few side dishes planned but are looking for that final menu item to balance out your dish, cornbread will do the trick. Golden sweet cornbread is sweet and delicious, and it tastes out-of-this-world when combined with buttery, moist chicken and a lighter side like a tomato and cucumber salad. And if you have the time, you can make your own honey butter!

Macaroni and Cheese

It’s not just kids who love macaroni and cheese - adults do, too! This is why you’ll find it on almost any menu that serves barbecue or chicken. This classic comfort dish is centered around cheese and starch, making it a filling addition to your protein. And, with so many different ways to make mac and cheese, you can find a recipe that suits your taste buds.

Rice Pilaf

Another starchy side dish that pairs well with rotisserie chicken is rice pilaf. It’s a step up from traditional plain white rice, as it includes onion, garlic, parsley and stock. Rice pilaf is a bit more involved compared to traditional rice, but it’s still relatively quick and easy to make. Plus, the fluffy texture and use of aromatics are well worth it!
