What to Serve with Rotisserie Chicken: 13 Tasty Side Dishes


Grilled chicken is a classic comfort food, crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Whether you bake them yourself or buy them at the store, they are always delicious and filling.

But for busy weekdays, a store-bought roast chicken is much easier. Combine it with a few different side dishes and you have a delicious dinner for at least two days.

Here are 13 quick and easy side dishes that will make your roast chicken an unforgettable meal.


1. Mashed potatoes

Let’s start with the basics. When it comes to side dishes, mashed potatoes are probably the most popular and loved dish, and for good reason. This creamy, buttery, cheesy dish is so delicious it’s almost impossible to stop at just one serving! It goes with so many different dishes. A steak? Absolutely. Pork chops? Hell, yes! Roast chicken? No doubt about it!


2. Potato scallop

When it comes to the holidays, potatoes always have a special place in my heart. But why not try something other than mashed potatoes? Sure, they’re delicious and taste great, but if you want something new and exciting, how about baked potatoes?

With this dish, you get incredibly tender and delicious potatoes under a thick layer of cheese crust that is crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. I suggest you make a bunch of them, because it will be a guaranteed success!

3. Cauliflower puree

Here’s another delicious alternative to regular mashed potatoes: cauliflower mashed potatoes! Cauliflower is much healthier and lighter than potatoes, so you can enjoy this buttery side dish without guilt.

Garlic cauliflower puree is so creamy and delicious you’d think it was sinful, but it’s not! It’s amazing.

4. Pumpkin with roasted nuts

This recipe proves that the simplest things make the tastiest dishes. Butternut squash is delicious on its own, so you don’t need to season it. A little salt and pepper will do.

Drizzle with olive oil, leave in the oven for 25-30 minutes, and voila!

5. Broccolini

Broccolini is the equally delicious cousin of broccoli. It has small inflorescences and longer stems than broccoli and has a milder taste. But seasoned with garlic and lemon, it’s an incredibly crunchy side dish for grilled chicken.

And it’s good for your body! What more do you want?

6. Roasted carrots

Since you are serving chicken that is already fried, you can serve it with the fried side. Carrots are an ideal candidate for roasting, as they are particularly delicious when roasted and caramelized to perfection.

Season with honey, coriander and cumin and you have a side dish that is easy to die for. And I also like that it goes with many other main dishes! Try it with steak, fish and pork and it will not disappoint you.

7. Garlic rice

Ahh. Sick. I don’t know about you, but for me, rice is the perfect ending to any meal. This starch goes so well with all proteins, and grilled chicken is no exception.

Just the thought of pouring some of that delicious chicken juice over a hot bowl of steamed rice makes my mouth water.

Want your rice to taste even better? Fry it with lots of rice and oil. Paradise.

8. Roasted maize

Pair the chicken with the sweet, juicy corn. Bake to perfection to make this beautiful scarf and drizzle with hot butter. Then add what you want! My favorites are still the cheese and crispy bacon, but feel free to experiment.

9. Spinach salad

Spinach salad is perfect for those who want a filling side dish without the calories. And even if you say you don’t like lettuce or spinach, I’m sure sweet and sour strawberries, red onion and goat cheese will change your mind.

10. Strawberry and Melon Salad

Here’s another guilt-free way to spice up your chicken dinner: Serve with a plate of watermelon salad with strawberries. The sweetness of the salad is a perfect complement to the delicious chicken!

To prepare, combine the strawberries, watermelon, olive oil and feta cheese. Garnish with basil and season with salt and pepper. What a simple and refreshing summer salad!

11. Grilled mushrooms

Sometimes I feel sorry for mushrooms because they rarely get the attention they deserve. It’s usually used as a secondary ingredient, but this earthy ingredient deserves to be a star!

So here we are: Shampoo the mushrooms, drizzle them with a balsamic soy glaze and grill them! I guarantee that even non-fans of mushrooms will fall in love with this dish.

12. Fried asparagus

Imagine long stalks of crisp green asparagus, all covered in cream cheese. Doesn’t that sound like a nice side dish? Crisp asparagus and cream cheese go so well together.

13. Roasted sweet potatoes

Do you know what flavor goes best with spices? Good. Do you know the best place to get sweet tastes? Sweet potatoes! Do you know which cooking method is best for sweet potatoes? Grill!

You know what I mean? You read that right: roasted sweet potatoes. Give these tasty sweet potatoes a delicious roast to make the perfect accompaniment to a steamed chicken.
