Discover the Best Side Dishes for Fried Chicken

Whether from a recipe you created yourself or a recipe passed down from your great-great-grandma. Here are some of the many sides that can enhance your fried chicken experience.



Bread Bowl Potato Soup

The very look of this dish makes you want to dive into it, and it is surprisingly easy to make. All it takes is a can of chicken broth, a package of diced potatoes and onions, milk and shredded cheddar cheese. Though you can make the bread bowls to serve them in, you don’t even have to do that. Just buy them at the store with the other ingredients.

Tomato Bisque

There’s no reason not to serve fried chicken with a hot, comforting bowl of soup rich with tomatoes, onions, celery, garlic and herbs. Most enticing of all, this bisque is made especially luxurious by as much as half a cup of heavy cream. You might be tempted to dip one of your wings in.

Breakfast Baked Potato

Yes, this potato is good for breakfast, but why stop at breakfast? You can have this for lunch as a fried chicken side order with cheddar cheese, scrambled eggs, scallions and bacon. Though the recipe says bake the potato for an hour, you can take a shortcut. Pop it in the microwave for about five minutes, flip it over, and microwave it for five minutes more.

Fresh Asparagus and Avocado Salad

This salad is just the thing to go with fried chicken. Indeed, you can peel the skin off the chicken, and toss slivers of meat into the salad if you want. But this dish, which not only sports avocados and asparagus but red onions, zucchini, tomatoes, mushrooms and herbs, is fantastic just as it is.
