If you’re wondering what to serve with your chicken kiev, you’ve come to the right place.
In this article, I list 15 of the most popular side dishes for chicken kiev.
In a rush? Here’s the short answer.
The best side dishes to serve with chicken kiev are fingerling potatoes, roasted Greek vegetables, and garlic butter grilled corn. You can also serve a side of mashed potatoes, creamy coleslaw, or butter parmesan orzo. For salad options, there’s chopped kale salad, three bean salad, or a Greek salad.
Ready? Let’s jump right in.
Butter parmesan orzo
Serve your chicken kiev on a bed of butter parmesan orzo.
It’s warm and hearty, and the cheesy flavors make it a perfect comfort meal for a cold winter night.
If you want to make this butter parmesan orzo even creamier, replace the chicken broth with cream.

Roasted Greek vegetables
Make your main dish shine with a side of colorful veggies.
Tossed in a Mediterranean seasoning, these veggies could not be any more flavorful.
And roasting veggies always brings out more depth to them.
The sweetness of bell pepper comes out, the onions caramelize slightly, and zucchinis add a hint of grassiness.

Make use of your air fryer with a side of these fingerling potatoes.
The potatoes have a crispy parmesan-coated exterior, making them super addicting.
And it takes less than 20 minutes to make them!
Psst… don’t forget the dipping sauce – I like to serve them with a creamy aioli.
Mash is a great side for chicken kiev.
It’s fluffy and creamy, and once you cut open the chicken kiev, the mash will absorb all the buttery flavors of whatever sauce you have in the middle (YUM).

Psst… to add some extra flavor why not mix some cheese into your mash, or add some mustard?
Roasted green beans and mushrooms
You can never go wrong with a side of simple veggies
Mushrooms add an earthy depth to your meal, while green beans offer a bit of crunch.
This six-ingredient recipe from Nichole uses garlic and soy sauce to keep things from getting boring (a dash of hot sauce wouldn’t go amiss either).
Mediterranean couscous salad
This Mediterranean couscous salad is loaded with nutrition and flavor.
The lemon dressing makes it feel summery and night.
And it’s got a nice blend of textures – crispiness from the veggies and chewiness from the couscous.
Looking for something low carb? You can easily swap out the couscous for cauliflower rice.
Garlic butter grilled corn
If you’re serving a garlic butter kiev (the best type!) grilled corn is the PERFECT side.
Once the garlic butter spills out of the kiev and smothers the corn – it’s a match made in heaven.
This 15-minute grilled corn recipe is fun to make and fun to eat.
Lemon dill potato salad
Swap your traditional creamy potato salad for this fresh lemon dill potato salad.
It has a tasty tang that isn’t weighed down by lots of mayonnaise, and another benefit of no mayonnaise is that you can serve the salad warm or cold.
Pro tip: plan a little ahead to give the potatoes time to absorb all that cool lemony flavor.
Homemade baked beans
One of my favorite ways to serve up a chicken kiev is with a side of saucy baked beans.
These homemade baked beans have a warm sweetness to them.
This dish also has a bit of heat to it from a spicy barbecue sauce and some smokiness from small bits of crispy bacon.
The beans may take a bit of time and effort to make, but it’s well worth it.
Sometimes all you want is a bit of salad with your chicken kiev.
And this Greek salad is a go-to in my household.
It’s made with fresh cucumbers, tomatoes, and feta. And then everything’s tied together with a simple vinaigrette.
It’s a great side for lazy evenings when you don’t want to do any cooking.
Chopped kale salad
Looking for something unique?
Look no further than this wintery chopped kale salad.
Kale is mixed with cabbage and shredded Brussel sprouts, then dried cherries, toasted pine nuts, and some sharp white cheddar are added.
Make sure to mix the lemon dressing in well, as this helps to soften any tough bits of kale.
Fluffy and flavorful, this hearty rice pilaf can be made in less than 30 minutes.
It’s a wonderful way to upgrade your classic white rice.
In Rachael’s recipe, the rice is cooked in chicken broth and she uses parsley to add a touch of freshness.
She also mixes in some orzo to add more texture to the meal.
Looking for a quick side dish that’s creamy yet light?
This 5-minute coleslaw is just the thing you’re looking for.
It’s a crunchy side that’s great to whip up for last-minute get-togethers – using a pre-shredded coleslaw mix saves you a ton of time!
Psst… if you’re not a fan of mayonnaise, try some low-fat Greek yogurt instead.
Three bean salad
I love making this protein-packed salad for lunch.
It adds substance to your meal and won’t leave you feeling hungry, but it also won’t leave you feeling like you’ve overindulged.
For better texture and flavor, use fresh green beans instead of canned ones.
Sara’s three-bean salad really hits its mark (and it’s suitable for making ahead of time).
Oven roasted baby potatoes
A classic side like oven-roasted potatoes will never look out of place next to a piece of chicken.
But sometimes I find traditional roasties too heavy and overpowering.
Instead, I like using baby potatoes. The thinner skin keeps them light, but they’re still ultra crispy, with a soft, buttery inside.
