What To Serve With Chicken Fritters – 11 Delicious Sides

If you’re wondering what to serve with your chicken fritters, you’ve come to the right place.

In this article, I list 11 of the most popular side dishes for chicken fritters.

In a rush? Here’s the short answer.

The best dishes to serve with chicken fritters are pasta pomodoro, coleslaw, mashed potatoes, and Greek salad. Try zucchini fries, spaghetti squash, and broccoli cheese casserole for alternatives to carb-loaded favorites. You can also serve succotash, waffles, and roasted root vegetables.

Ready? Let’s jump right in.

Pasta pomodoro

I love serving chicken fritters and pasta pomodoro together. 

They’re a natural fit – the fritters add protein to your pasta, and the pomodoro sauce makes your fritters tastier. 

Plus, this pasta dish is super easy to make. 

You can get this pasta pomodoro from your kitchen to your dining table in only 40 minutes. 



Are you a big fan of coleslaw but wish it was healthier?

Swap out your full-fat mayo and use Greek yogurt for the dressing. 

You’ll still get that same creaminess with fewer calories. 

This revamped dressing also has an extra tangy flavor, which works well to cut through the greasiness of your chicken fritters.

Sour cream & chive mashed potatoes

Mashed potatoes and chicken fritters make an excellent, hearty meal.

But instead of sticking to the traditional recipe, I prefer adding sour cream and chives. 

The sour cream makes them creamier and infuses them with a delectable tangy flavor. The chives also add a bright, oniony flavor that works well with sour cream.

Alfredo stuffed spaghetti squash

Looking for a low-carb pasta alternative?

Spaghetti squash can help you with that – when roasted and shredded, it becomes tender, reminiscent of angel hair pasta. 

Half-Baked Harvest has a delicious recipe featuring spaghetti squash stuffed with a decadent four-cheese mixture. 

The faux noodles smothered with creamy, cheesy sauce is the perfect partner for your chicken fritters. 

Greek salad

Chicken fritters are fried, so it’s a good idea to serve them with a fresh and healthy side salad. 

Greek salad is my go-to because the ingredients needed are mostly basic pantry staples.

But most importantly, the combination of crisp cucumbers, onions, and juicy tomatoes, with a tangy vinaigrette adds a refreshing bite, especially to fried dishes. 

You’re missing out if you don’t have Greek salad in your weekly meal rotation. 

Rosemary roasted root vegetables

These roasted root vegetables are a healthy and filling dish perfect even for busy weeknights. 

You don’t have to do any hands-on cooking with this dish. Just chop and season your vegetables and leave your oven to do the rest for you.

Pro Tip: make sure to cut your vegetables uniformly, so they roast evenly. 

As the veggies roast, you can focus on frying your chicken fritters. Win-win!

Zucchini fries

Potato fries and chicken fritters are a superb combination. 

But if you’re trying to eat healthier, whip up some zucchini fries instead. 

They turn out just as crispy as your regular fries, with the help of panko breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese.

She Loves Biscotti’s recipe makes this zucchini version even healthier by cooking them in either the oven or air fryer.

You won’t feel guilty while eating these crispy, flavorful zucchini fries. 

Creamy Tuscan mushrooms


Make your chicken fritters shine by topping them with these creamy mushrooms. 

The luscious sauce is made with white wine (or chicken broth if you prefer). 

Additions like sun-dried tomatoes and parmesan cheese give your sauce a combination of sweet, tart, and salty flavors.

Broccoli cheese casserole

Want something decadent but still a little healthy? This broccoli casserole is what you need. 

With this dish, you’ll get vibrant and tender florets smothered with an extra cheesy sauce. 

There’s also a buttery crunch in every bite, thanks to the buttered panko topping. 

Imagine drizzling the leftover cheese sauce over your chicken fritters? Absolutely delish!

Southwestern succotash

Bring some bright colors to your chicken fritters with a serving of this succotash. 

What sets this apart from your usual succotash is the addition of black beans and chickpeas. 

These add more protein to your dish, making it even healthier. 

This dish calls for chili powder, which you can easily adjust based on your preference. 

Give it a try – you won’t regret making this tasty, nutrient-dense Southwestern succotash

Buttermilk waffles

Planning to have chicken fritters for brunch?

You can’t go wrong by serving them with crispy, fluffy waffles. 

I usually whip up sweet waffles for that delectable sweet and savory flavor combination with the fritters. 

But you can also keep it all savory and make these cheddar zucchini waffles instead. 

Enjoy your buttermilk waffles and chicken fritters with your favorite brunch cocktail (I’m a mimosa gal myself).
