If you have been following here for a while then you know that my go-to Crispy Skin Roasted Chicken recipe is the number one on-repeat recipe I make for my family. I even confessed as much on live radio.

This being the case, I have come up with a handful of side dishes for roast chicken that my family loves. From creamy roasted garlic mashed potatoes to my daughter’s favorite lemon broccoli recipe and our all-time favorite combination of all paired with Tuscan Kale Caesar Salad.

My Top Tips For Planning A Roasted Chicken Dinner

  • Roast chicken only takes a few minutes of prep work to get into the oven. Once it goes in, use your time to clean up the kitchen and prep your side dishes.
  • While it is tempting to pair roasted chicken with a casserole or roasted vegetable, roasting chicken requires a very hot oven. That’s why you’ll need to make sure to choose stove-top side dishes, grilling recipes, and ones that don’t need to go into the oven.
  • For a traditional plate, you can choose both a vegetable side dish and a starch side dish, or you can double up on veggies to save calories and get in extra veggie servings.
