You can’t beat a good chicken dinner, but what will you have on the side? Read on to see some of my favorite side dishes for fried chicken!
What Goes Well with Fried Chicken?
We live a few blocks from a little grocery store. When you walk within a block of the store around lunch or dinner time, you can hardly resist stopping in. Why? Because the scrumptious aroma of fresh fried chicken permeates the air! OMG. Fried chicken smells SO GOOD! My boys always beg me to buy it!
If you’re a regular at The Weary Chef, you know that I’m pretty wimpy when it comes to deep-frying foods. Like, I don’t do it, ever. A pot of hot oil sounds like a medical emergency or messy disaster just waiting to happen. I can make a mean pan-fried chicken or baked “fried” chicken, but when it comes to the real thing, I let the experts at the grocery store take care of it ;)
Even if you buy pre-cooked chicken, you can still make it a homemade meal with the side dishes! I put together a list of 10 of my favorite recipes to pair with crispy, delicious fried chicken. Check these out!
