different sides for chicken

I'm making fried chicken for dinner tonight and I want something different with it besides the usual mashed potatoes and a vegetable, but it can't be too difficult

  • coleslaw goes good with fried chicken. Have you ever tried twice baked potatoes? That would be a new twist on mashed potatoes.

  • I often make a pasta salad w/ fried chicken. I put in lots of raw veggies so I don't make another side. Or what about biscuits and a big green salad?

  • Well this is too late for tonight, but I really like rice pilaf or cous cous pilaf with chicken. All you need to do is dice some veggies, whatever you like...I use zucchini, yellow crooked neck squash, carrots..whatever I have. For rice, saute the rice in a bit of butter & olive oil first, then add veggies, including minced onion or shallot, and saute another minute or so, then add chicken stock. Cover, simmer until rice is tender.
    For cous cous, saute the veggies, again with onion or shallot, then add stock and bring to a boil. Add cous cous, cover, remove from heat. In 5 minutes, you're done!
