Ready? Let’s jump right in.
Golden fried rice
This golden fried rice gets its name from its vibrant, golden color – which also happens to look superb when paired with brightly-colored dishes like honey sriracha chicken.
This recipe calls for mixing egg yolks with your day-old rice before stir-frying.
Not only does this method add color, but it also gives your rice a subtle egg flavor.

Not in the mood for fried rice?
Pair your honey sriracha chicken with scalloped potatoes instead (and find other things to pair with scalloped potatoes here).
The rich, cheesy sauce combined with your sweet and spicy chicken is a match made in heaven.
This potato dish might look fancy, but it’s not hard to make.
Broma Bakery’s recipe calls for less bechamel and more cheese, giving you crispy edges to contrast the tender potatoes.
Aside from steaming, sauteing is the best method to cook broccoli.
This method preserves more nutrients and allows you to infuse your florets with clean and simple flavors.
It’s also a quick process – in just 15 minutes, you’ll have crisp-tender broccoli ready to be served with your honey sriracha chicken.

Sesame garlic ramen noodles
Got some instant ramen packets sitting in your kitchen?
Turn them into a delicious noodle dish by ditching the sauce packet and making your own.
A mixture of sriracha, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, and a dash of brown sugar will give you a flavorful, umami-loaded sauce.
Enjoy the flavors of your favorite Chinese restaurant in the comfort of your kitchen with a meal of honey sriracha chicken and sesame garlic ramen noodles.
Tossed green salad
This salad is made with a mix of leafy vegetables and red onions tossed in a classic vinaigrette.
Too plain for your taste? You can add cheese, olives, dried fruits, or nuts – customize this salad to your heart’s content.
Still, its simplicity makes this tossed green salad the perfect healthy base for your honey sriracha chicken.
Not the biggest fan of leafy greens, but still want to give your honey sriracha chicken a nutritious boost?
These sesame asparagus are what you need.
This dish features crisp-tender asparagus coated with an umami-packed sauce.
It’s a breeze to make – most of the ingredients are pantry staples, plus the entire process only takes 15 minutes.
This sesame asparagus is the perfect healthy addition to your meals, especially during hectic weeknights.
Avocado egg rolls
These are not your standard egg rolls.
Instead of pork and cabbage filling, each roll has been filled with a mashed avocado mixture and then deep fried until crispy.
Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it– the combination of creamy avocado and crispy egg roll wrappers is guaranteed to be a satisfying treat.
These avocado egg rolls pair well with a sweet chili dipping sauce, but I like to dip them straight into the honey sriracha chicken’s glaze.
Vegetable stir fry
Stick to the classics and serve your honey sriracha chicken with a vegetable stir fry.
This popular Chinese takeout dish is one of the easiest dishes you can make.
The key lies in the sauce.
This recipe features a homemade stir fry sauce that’ll give you that addictive sweet and sour flavor combination.

Asian cucumber jicama slaw
Need a refreshing dish to pair with your heavy honey sriracha chicken?
Give this jicama slaw a try.
It has a satisfying crunchy texture, thanks to the fresh English cucumbers and jicama.
Plus, its zesty vinaigrette is what you need to cut through your honey sriracha’s richness.
This Asian cucumber and jicama slaw make a fantastic addition to your weekly meal plan.
Seared baby bok choy
Tired of just stir-frying your bok choy?
Try searing them instead! They get nicely charred on the outside while remaining tender inside, with the leaves wilted and a little crispy.
They’re finished off by steaming in a soy sauce and water mixture, and served with a drizzle of ginger garlic sauce.

These tortillas aren’t technically a side dish, but other than rice, they’re an excellent vessel for your honey sriracha chicken.
Just slice your chicken up, load them into the tortillas, and add some pickled veggies or slaw for a hearty meal.
