If you’re wondering what to serve with your chicken fricassee, you’ve come to the right place.
In this article, I list 11 of the most popular side dishes for chicken fricassee.
In a rush? Here’s the short answer.
The best dishes to serve with chicken fricassee are French bistro salad, herb rice pilaf, roasted peas, and French bread rolls. Try sauteed swiss chard, wrapped asparagus, pesto zoodles, or celeriac mash for low-carb options. Serve gnocchi, roast potatoes, or baked polenta for starchy choices.
Ready? Let’s jump right in.
French bistro salad
A fresh side salad is always a welcome addition to a dish as rich and creamy as chicken fricassee.
And I can’t recommend this salad enough.
It’s a light dish, with pops of tartness from the pickled shallots and crunchy bits courtesy of the walnuts.
Transport yourself to France with this French bistro salad.
Garlic herb rice pilaf
Want something heartier than a salad?
You could stick with plain white rice, but why not take things up a notch and go with rice pilaf instead?
This pilaf is brimming with flavor thanks to some garlic, herbs, and chicken broth.
And the best part?
This garlic herb rice pilaf only takes 20 minutes to cook.
French bread rolls
Chicken fricassee has this delicious sauce just begging to be soaked up by some crusty bread.
And what better bread than these French bread rolls?
They’re light and airy on the inside, with a crunchy, golden-brown exterior – and they taste amazing with some butter.
In the mood for baking?
Give these a try with Dinner Then Dessert’s recipe.
Whip up a special dinner featuring chicken fricassee and pan-fried gnocchi – they’re a match made in heaven.
Just the thought of smothering these crisp Italian potato dumplings with your fricassee’s sauce is enough to make my stomach rumble.
Adding spinach and some sun-dried tomatoes completes the meal.
Everyone will be asking for second servings of this pan-fried gnocchi with spinach.
Sauteed swiss chard
Looking for something warm, simple, and healthy?
You can’t go wrong with this sauteed swiss chard – just like spinach, this leafy green is a nutritional powerhouse.
There are many ways to prepare swiss chard, but I usually saute it with some garlic and oil.
Pro-Tip: The colorful stems are tougher than the leaves, so cook them first.
Celeriac mash is an excellent keto-friendly alternative to our beloved mashed potatoes.
Celeriac has a nutty taste, but will still be just as creamy as traditional mash once you mix in the butter and garlic.
Pop your chicken on a bed of this creamy celeriac mash and then drown them both in the fricassee sauce.
Duck fat roast potatoes
If you want something really indulgent – go for these duck fat roast potatoes.
They have an ultra crunchy skin, that’s dripping in a delicious savory flavor from the duck fat.
These roasties may take a bit of effort, but they’ll be some of the best you’ve ever tasted.

Brown butter and garlic roasted peas
Got a bag of frozen peas sitting at the back of your freezer?
Transform them into a tasty side dish of brown butter and garlic roasted peas.
Just pop them on a sheet pan, drizzle over some luscious brown butter, and add a couple of garlic cloves.
The resulting dish?
Vibrant green peas with a sweet, nutty, rich flavor.
Lemon zucchini noodles
Pasta is a great hearty accompaniment for chicken fricassee.
But if you want to keep things light, try serving zucchini noodles instead.
You can serve your zoodles raw, but I prefer to saute them for a more al dente bite.
And coating them with a lemon butter sauce adds a bright flavor that will balance out the richness of the chicken’s sauce.
Margherita baked polenta
Polenta is usually served with a loose consistency, like grits.
But did you know you can bake it too?
A Spicy Perspective’s recipe features baked polenta topped with cheesy mozzarella and tomatoes for a twist on the classic Margherita pizza – yum!
Inject some Italian flair to your French chicken fricassee with this baked polenta.
Spruce up your standard asparagus by wrapping it with some salty prosciutto.
It’s a great way to fancy-fi a meal without much effort.
Just keep in mind to check on them as they bake – pull them out as soon as they turn a vibrant green to get gorgeous, perfectly crisp-tender asparagus.
