We buy a rotisserie chicken every week – and enjoy the bounty for days. But we like to mix it up; potatoes, veggies (hot and cold), pasta – there are many ways to enjoy that chicken and to turn it into a meal. Here are our 34 community favorites.
Garlic & Herb Corn on the Cob
Make when corn is at its peak – which is our neck of the woods is actually September! Garlic-infused oil, butter and a shower of fresh herbs. Salt and pepper and you’re done! Sometimes simple is best. Get the recipe for Garlic & Herb Corn on the Cob.
Sour Cream & Chive Mashed Potatoes
Sour cream and chives are a classic baked potato topping. Why not add to mashed potatoes? We did, and dare we say it, they are out-of-this-world. So easy to make, too. Psst: add bacon, if you are so inclined. Get the recipe for Sour Cream & Chive Mashed Potatoes.
Gluten-Free Easy Stovetop Mac n’ Cheese
This is our easiest mac and cheese recipe – a true classic that the family will love. Lactose-free, too! So creamy and cheesy and the perfect side for roast chicken. Get the recipe for Gluten-Free Easy Stovetop Mac n’ Cheese.
I did say crispy SMASHED Potatoes, not mashed potatoes! Don’t know what smashed potatoes are? They’re smashed (we show you how), they are crispy on the outside and creamy inside. EVERYTHING you want from a potato! Baked on a sheet pan in a high heat oven. Get the recipe for Smashed Potatoes.
Roasted & Glazed Carrots
Rainbow carrots! The roasting part takes place in the oven set at a high temperature. The glazing happens with the addition of a little sugar, which is optional, but gives the carrots a nice sheen and a little sweetness. Fancy enough for guests, simple enough for a weeknight meal. Get the recipe for Roasted & Glazed Carrots.
Perfect Steamed Green Beans
Sometimes simple is best. These crips-cooked green beans are the perfect side dish to your rich mains and potato casseroles. Get the recipe for Perfect Steamed Green Beans.
Simple Sourdough Stuffing
Sometimes simple ingredients come together to become more than a sum of their parts. Such is this recipe. Start with good sourdough bread and olive oil. Add fresh parsley, dried sage, rosemary and thyme, leeks, scallions and you will have a stuffing worthy of Thanksgiving, but easy enough for a weeknight. Get the recipe for Simple Sourdough Stuffing.
Leafy Green Salad
This couldn’t be easier. An array of fresh leafy greens – some crisp, some soft and tender – tossed with your favorite salad dressing. We’ve got those too, from Balsamic to Ranch! Get the recipe for Leafy Green Salad.
Skillet Mushroom Kale Cornbread
This skillet cornbread, featuring mushrooms and kale, is fantastic cut into a wedge and served alongside your meal, but we also love it crumbled as a basis for a holiday stuffing. Get the recipe for Skillet Mushroom Kale Cornbread.
Oven-Baked Parsnip Fries
Parsnips are a sweet and earthy root vegetable that take well to oven roasting. Sort of like a French fry, but different! Get the recipe for Oven-Baked Parsnip Fries.
Classic scalloped potatoes – only our recipe is lactose-free! No one will know the difference. Tender potato slices (we like a blend of russet and gold) roasted in the oven with heavy cream, butter, salt and pepper. Get the recipe for Scalloped Potatoes.
Pan Roasted Green Beans & Almonds
We like using slender haricot vert green beans for this simple sauté. A little olive oil, scallions, salt, pepper and sliced almonds come together in a classic combination. Get the recipe for Pan Roasted Green Beans & Almonds.
Kale, Quinoa Feta Salad with Blueberries
This salad has it all going for it. The title says it all: Kale Quinoa Salad with juicy blueberries, tangy feta and toasted pecans. Hearty enough for a main-dish lunch. Get the recipe for Kale, Quinoa Feta Salad with Blueberries.
Creamed spinach is a classic and we have figured out how to make a lactose-free version for those following a lactose-free diet. Easy to make, we love this as a side dish to a holiday ham or roast beef. Get the recipe for Creamed Spinach.
Kale, Carrot & Apple Salad
Have you heard that you have to “massage” your kale to make a good kale salad? We have nothing against a hands-on approach, but this recipe offers you an alternative technique that makes prep easier. The slightly bitter kale is balanced by the earthy carrots and sweet apple, dressed with a simple olive oil vinaigrette with a touch of Dijon mustard and maple syrup. This is an economical, simple salad. Get the recipe for Kale, Carrot & Apple Salad.
Brown Rice, Hazelnut & Apple Dressing
No need to save dressings and stuffings for Thanksgiving and the winter holidays. This dressing is based on brown rice and includes toasted hazelnuts, bits of juicy apple, orange zest, mint, and parsley. It is flavor packed and an excellent side dish to many of your mains. Get the recipe for Brown Rice, Hazelnut & Apple Dressing.
A classic. Soft, fresh mozzarella, juicy tomatoes and fresh basil. Drizzle with the best olive oil you can afford. Get the recipe for Caprese Salad.
Light & Crunchy Carolina Slaw
Sometimes you might like a vinegary, light slaw with no mayonnaise or creamy based dressing. This Light & Crunchy Carolina Coleslaw is just that. It is super crunchy and as colorful as a rainbow featuring both green and red cabbages, carrots, green, yellow and red bell peppers with a light dressing of vegetable oil, vinegar, celery seed and a little tarragon, as well as sugar. Get the recipe for Light & Crunchy Carolina Slaw.
Chopped Caesar Salad
In this instance our recipe has you adding the cooked chicken to the chopped salad. You could do that, or just serve the salad alongside your rotisserie chicken. Get the recipe for Chopped Caesar Salad.
Hasselback Potatoes are crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside, simple to make and go with many different mains. Our version uses Garlic-Infused Oil, butter and fresh thyme. The name, by the way, hails from a classic Swedish preparation. They look kind of fancy, but the technique is actually very easy. The scrubbed potatoes are sliced 1/8-inch (3 mm) thick crosswise, but not all the way through. This allows the potatoes to fan out a little but, exposing the flesh to the high heat. Get the recipe for Hasselback Potatoes.
Potato Salad with Hardboiled Eggs
This is the classic, old-fashioned potato salad found at so many church events and potlucks – potato salad made extra creamy with hard boiled eggs, a tangy yet creamy mayonnaise-based dressing, and a little crunch from celery. The hard-boiled eggs add flavor, texture and extra protein! Get the recipe for Potato Salad with Hardboiled Eggs.
Colcannon is a classic Irish mashed potato dish that is enriched with greens, in this case, kale. Use rich Irish butter for a particularly delectable result. Crisp chicken skin and creamy colannon alongside? Yes, please! Get the recipe for Colcannon.
If you love fries and want less fat, oven fries are the way to go. They are easy to make, if you follow some simple rules. We have a foolproof recipe – and many tell us that they never go back to fried; they are that good. Crisp on the outside and tender in the middle. Perfect for ketchup dipping, or maybe in malt vinegar! Get the recipe for Oven-Baked Fries.
Quick Tomato Sauce
Here is a simple and fast tomato sauce for spaghetti, a great side dish for roast chicken. Top with a nice shower of freshly grated Parmesan. Get the recipe for Quick Tomato Sauce.
Classic Potato Gratin
Here it is in all of its dairy-rich, starchy glory. Potato gratin often includes garlic; ours does not, but you won’t miss it, especially if you include the optional thyme and nutmeg, which we think add a very nice touch. Get the recipe for Classic Potato Gratin.
Brussels Sprouts with Bacon
Think you don’t like Brussels sprouts? We have created a savory Brussels sprouts side dish; the sprouts are sautéed in bacon fat and then tossed with crispy bacon bits. Give this one a try. Get the recipe for Brussels Sprouts with Bacon.
Potato Salad with Bacon, Chives & Blue Cheese
This recipe for Potato Salad with Bacon features russet-style potatoes, giving it a creamy texture. The chives add the perfect accent, but you could use scallion greens, if you like. The dressing combines olive oil, apple cider vinegar, Dijon mustard and maple syrup. Don’t forget the black pepper seasoning! Get the recipe for Potato Salad with Bacon, Chives & Blue Cheese.
Hot Potato Salad with Bacon
We like red-skinned potatoes in this recipe for this for the visual, but you could use a Yukon gold type, too. Purple potatoes would be dramatic. We love this as a side to simple roast meats and poultry. Don’t leave out the parsley. It is more than a garnish here and truly adds flavor and color to the dish. Get the recipe for Hot Potato Salad with Bacon.
Loaded Wedge Salad
Our Loaded Wedge Salad might be the perfect accompaniment to your burger. Or steak. Or roast chicken dinner. Heck, it is almost a meal unto itself. A big wedge of iceberg lettuce topped with our very own, homemade Blue Cheese Dressing, crisp, crumbled bacon, chopped tomatoes and chives. Get ready to dig in! Tons of texture and flavor. Don’t tell us that Iceberg lettuce is boring! Get the recipe for Loaded Wedge Salad.
Rainbow Winter Slaw
Hankering for fresh veggies mid-winter? We first made this recipe in the midst of a cold snap, with minus 30°F/-1°C and colder with the wind-chill factor. Making this colorful salad was like a burst if sunshine brought inside and piled into a bowl. It is crunchy and super colorful. Talk about eating the rainbow! We’ve got pale green cabbage and dark green kale. Purple/red cabbage, shreds of bright orange carrots and glistening ruby colored pomegranate seeds. Get the recipe for Rainbow Winter Slaw.
Root Vegetable Tian
Our Root Vegetable Tian combines potatoes and parsnips, beets and sweet potatoes. Sliced thinly, arranged in a baking dish, drizzled with extra-virgin oil, sprinkled with salt, pepper, dried thyme and a little Parmesan (or left out to make the dish vegan), this spectacular side-dish will enhance your weekday roast chicken – or make for a holiday meal or festive get-together. Get the recipe for Root Vegetable Tian.
Brussels Sprouts Salad
Looking for a salad that’s really different? This Brussels Sprouts Salad with smoked almonds, pomegranates and a simple, tangy vinaigrette fits the bill. The shaved Parmesan cheese is optional. Get the recipe for Brussels Sprouts Salad.
Gluten-free orzo is the basis for this lovely pasta salad with colorful, juicy, and crunchy cucumbers and tomatoes. A lemony salad dressing works beautifully with the fresh dill, parsley, and scallion greens. Add feta if you like. Get the recipe for Orzo Salad.
Spicy Roasted Broccolini with Garlic & Lemon
Broccolini has a sweet, earthy taste, here enhanced with garlic-infused olive oil, lemon and a red pepper flakes. Get the recipe for Spicy Roasted Broccolini with Garlic & Lemon.
