In the South, fried chicken is a beloved tradition, but this popular food is appreciated in all areas of the country. Side dishes for fried chicken work for fried chicken tenders, too, or even baked chicken tenders or baked chicken.
Here’s another staple of southern comfort food sides and it goes really well with your fried chicken. Mac and cheese can be cooked a million different ways and you can even add your own ingredients once you get used to making them.
It wouldn’t be a southern dinner without a classic southern dessert to go with it. Serve up a warm side of peach cobbler with a scoop of ice cream on the side to round out the perfect fried chicken meal.
If you want to keep the savory flavors going, then try a side of baked beans the next time you try fried chicken. Normally, baked beans are kept for cookouts but it goes just as well with a wonderfully cooked fried chicken.
