Grilled or BBQ chicken is a staple in many backyards.
It’s cheap, healthy, delicious, and there is a different cut to suit many different recipes and styles.
However, there is one downside to eating chicken all the time. You often get stuck in a loop of using the same old side dishes.
So here are 10 side dishes for BBQ chicken that are big hits in my family!
10 Delicious Side Dishes For BBQ Chicken
Secret Sauce Baked Beans
Beans are an essential side dish, but they can get a little boring. This recipe transforms your standard beans into something special!
Homestyle Creamy Coleslaw
Chicken and coleslaw go hand in hand. This coleslaw is packed full of veggies and is fantastic the next day in leftover chicken sandwiches!
Smoked Mac & Cheese
You have had mac and cheese, but you have never had mac and cheese like this. This recipe is as comfort food as it gets! It is deliciously smoky, you will never make regular mac and cheese agian.
Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread
Like things a little spicy? You will love this twist on traditional cornbread.
I don’t know why but my family seems to LOVE these fort cutting into ‘burgers’ and making little chicken sandwiches with grilled chicken thighs and the creamy slaw above. Delicious!
Charred Corn Salad
Once you make this you will never make plain old grilled corn again! This is an awesome side for any gathering or bbq!
Crunchy and Spicy Grilled Okra
I always overlooked okra. This recipe changed my view on it. They are healthier than potatoes and just as delicious!
Black Bean and Corn Rice Salad
This is a great second side to have if you are having the above charred corn salad. A real Mexican treat!
Southern Fried Green Tomatoes
If you are looking for something a little more traditional these southern fried green tomatoes are perfect! Remember to serve with plenty of hot sauce!
Bacon Wrapped Brussels Sprouts
Anything can be delicious wrapped in bacon, and brussels sprouts are no exception. This is a super quick and easy side you can whip up at the last minutes.
