1 – Roasted Asparagus with Lemon

Roasted asparagus with lemon is our go-to side dish, folks. The asparagus turns slightly crispy, and the lemon adds a zesty zing.

The flavors are fresh and bright. We keep it simple with olive oil, salt, and pepper. No need to overcomplicate it.

We’re big fans of this combo. It pairs excellently with the creamy goodness of Chicken Florentine, balancing out the richness.

2 – Garlic Parmesan Mashed Potatoes

Garlic Parmesan Mashed Potatoes are like a warm hug from grandma. We cook the potatoes until tender, then mash them with roasted garlic for a punch of flavor. A generous handful of Parmesan cheese brings a nutty, salty taste. They’re silky, creamy, and downright irresistible.

It’s a cool twist on the classic. Trust us, the savory garlic and rich Parmesan lift the humble mashed spuds to new heights.

3 – Creamy Spinach Risotto

Alright, here’s the scoop on creamy spinach risotto. Our version is packed with tender spinach and rich, creamy goodness. Arborio rice brings that perfect velvety texture.

The key ingredients? Arborio rice, fresh spinach, parmesan, and a splash of white wine. The cheese adds a nutty kick while the wine brings in a subtle tang.

We always find this risotto works wonders next to Chicken Florentine. It’s like comfort in a bowl.

4 – Sautéed Broccolini with Garlic

Broccolini is like broccoli’s cooler cousin. We love it sautéed with garlic.

Simply cook broccolini until tender-crisp. Add some minced garlic for a kick.

Olive oil, salt, pepper – that’s it. The flavor is earthy with a hint of sweetness.

Our top pick? Pair it with Chicken Florentine. The garlic perfectly complements the creamy spinach.

5 – Parmesan Herb Orzo

Ok, orzo fans, this dish is for you! We cook the orzo until it’s al dente. Mix in fresh herbs like thyme and parsley. Add a generous amount of Parmesan cheese for that savory kick. It’s herby, cheesy, and super satisfying.

Perfect for serving with Chicken Florentine. The herbs add freshness while the Parmesan gives a nutty richness. We love it – simple, tasty, and easy to make.

6 – Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic Glaze

Brace yourself! Roasted Brussels sprouts transformed our side dish game. The caramelized, crispy exterior is pure bliss.

We toss the sprouts in olive oil, salt, and pepper. Roast until they’re golden and delicious. A drizzle of balsamic glaze amps up the flavor. It’s sweet and tangy, winning us over every time.

We’re obsessed with this crunchy, savory, and slightly sweet combo. Ideal alongside Chicken Florentine’s creamy richness!

7 – Lemon Herb Couscous

Oh, Lemon Herb Couscous, you lovable little grains! Seriously, it’s super simple and delicious.

We boil the couscous in broth for extra flavor. Fresh herbs like parsley and thyme go in next. Squeeze in some lemon juice for a burst of citrusy goodness.

It’s fresh, tangy, and herbaceous. Perfect sidekick for Chicken Florentine’s richness. We always find ourselves going back for seconds.

8 – Sautéed Zucchini Noodles

Alright, let’s talk about sautéed zucchini noodles. We slice the zucchinis into noodle-like strands. A quick toss in olive oil and garlic and they’re ready.

These “zoodles” are light and refreshing. They’ve got a hint of sweetness mixed with that classic garlic punch. We love how they soak up flavors. Perfect with Chicken Florentine’s rich sauce.

9 – Tomato and Cucumber Salad with Feta

We all agree that Tomato and Cucumber Salad with Feta is unbeatable. Fresh and bright, it’s the perfect side. Crisp cucumbers and juicy tomatoes give it a refreshing crunch. Toss in some feta, and you’ve got a salty, creamy hit.

Our tip? Add fresh herbs like basil or mint for an extra kick. We can’t get enough of the light, tangy dressing. A must-try with Chicken Florentine’s richness.

10 – Garlic Bread

Garlic bread is a classic side dish that never disappoints. We spread a generous amount of garlic butter on crusty bread. A quick bake until golden and it’s ready.

The bread is crispy, buttery, and packed with garlic goodness. We can’t get enough of that crunchy texture paired with Chicken Florentine. It’s the ultimate comfort side. Perfect for soaking up every bit of sauce on your plate.
