Herb and garlic mashed potatoes
Mashed potatoes go with pretty much anything.
But they go especially well with a big juicy portion of spinach-stuffed chicken.
And when it comes to mash, your side is only as good as the potatoes you use.
If you’re using subpar potatoes, your mash is going to be lackluster at best.
Vikalinka has some great tips on choosing the right ones to elevate your mash to a whole new level.
Psst… reheat your potatoes before serving because the mashing process can cool them down.

If you want to go with a classic pairing for your stuffed chicken, wild rice pilaf is the way to go.
This easy wild rice pilaf is packed with vegetables like carrots and celery, and it’s cooked in vegetable broth so each grain is infused with flavor.
It’s also easy to customize.

Lemon parmesan risotto
Want something filling and comforting?
Serve this lemon parmesan risotto with your spinach-stuffed chicken.
The risotto is infused with lemon zest, shallots, garlic, and parmesan cheese, giving it a rich and creamy flavor.
And the peas add a touch of sweetness to the dish, making it truly irresistible.
Other risotto options I like are this creamy tomato risotto or an earthy mushroom risotto.
Balsamic soy roasted garlic mushroom

This recipe for balsamic soy roasted garlic mushrooms is super easy and delicious.
The mushrooms absorb all the flavors of their balsamic vinegar and soy sauce marinade, giving them a deep savory flavor that will complement the milder chicken dish wonderfully.

Cauliflower broccoli salad
Steamed veggies like broccoli are pretty traditional (i.e boring) sides for chicken.
But what if I told you there was another way to serve broccoli… in a salad!
This bright and colorful salad is stuffed with all your favorite veggies like broccoli, cauliflower, corn, and peppers.
It even sneaks some avocado in there (in the dressing).

Buttered braised cabbage
Cabbage is one of the most underrated vegetables out there.
It’s cheap, healthy, and delicious (especially when it’s cooked in butter).
It’s also great for making ahead of time. You can cook it a few days before and then quickly reheat it when you need it.
And if you want to make it meatier, chuck some bacon into the mix.
