The Best Sides To Accompany Those Chicken Dinners
Chicken is the ultimate weeknight dinner component. Plus, you can prepare it dozens of ways. Chicken will go with just about anything, so we picked out some of our favorite chicken dinner sides that are packed with flavor. Recipe: Sweet-and-Sour Green Beans. Although this hearty grain bowl is a well-rounded vegetarian meal on its own, it would be delicious topped with grilled or roasted chicken for even more protein.
Fall is finally in the air!! Per usual, Brad grilled steaks and sausages that is his thing and he does it well! For appetizers, I put together a big cheese platter with nuts, dried apricots, figs and three different types of cheeses I usually go with one mild cheese, one hard and one soft. Since we were going for a bit of a fall theme I wanted to do a side dish that felt a little like comfort food. Parmesan Chive Smashed Potatoes were perfect. They are a good serving size for a dinner party and for me, they are the food version of a warm cozy blanket.
And as for turning on the oven? Forget about it. Instead, we turn to crisp, fruity salads, light garden pastas with fresh veggies, seafood and citrus-based dishes. And who has the best, summer-appropriate recipes? Food Network star and cookbook author Ina Garten , of course.
