What goes well with BBQ Chicken or Smoked Chicken?
Plenty of side dishes go with both BBQ Chicken or Smoked Chicken and it really is going to depend on what type of method you want to use.
These can be cooked using the smoker right alongside with Smoked Chicken, Oven, or Air Fryer.
First, decide what type of method you want to use for preparing the side dish, then do you want a cold side dish or a warm side dish? Sometimes it’s great to use one of each like a broccoli salad and baked beans.
Personally, I like to add a variety of hot and cold sides. The cold sides are great because you can easily prepare them in advance and let them chill in the fridge.
Do you want to smoke the sides alongside your chicken? Or grill the sides? These are all things to consider when choosing sides. If you are smoking chicken, it’s very easy to add baked potatoes right onto the smoker or pellet grill too.
Can you make gluten-free sides?
Almost all of these recipes are going to be naturally gluten-free or there will be specific instructions in the recipe on how to make them gluten-free.
Gluten-Free sides are very easy to make as most of the time sides are going to be vegetable based. As always though, check all ingredients and the recipe to be sure you have avoided any cross-contamination.
