Grilled Chicken is a staple in my home! I love making it. And love eating it!
But, even the best grilling recipes need delicious side dishes.
I’ve got 18 side dish recipes that are amazing!
First, before I get to the best side dishes I want to share some ‘all-in-one’ meals.
My absolute favorite way of serving grilled chicken is with a Grilled Greek Chicken Salad: it’s got everything you love – red onion, feta cheese, GRILLED romaine lettuce, cucumbers, parmesan cheese crisps. All drizzled with a creamy dressing that can’t be beat!
Another easy recipe is Bruschetta Chicken. You take fresh tomatoes, garlic, a little lemon zest, and lemon juice, give it a hefty drizzle of balsamic vinegar and olive oil and spoon it over the grilled chicken. YUM!
If it’s the middle of summer, and you just CAN NOT cook inside during the summer months, give these Skillet Grilled Green Beans a try! They’re made right in the skillet with just a little olive oil, salt, and black pepper. Grilling the green beans over high heat, inside the skillet or even a grill basket is a great way to create a healthy recipe filled with flavor! If you’re ready to add a little spice, sprinkle some red pepper flakes on top of the green beans!

They’re the classic recipes for good reason! To make it feel a “little” homemade, sprinkle fresh green onions on top after you’ve scooped the salads into serving bowls. People will never know!
