Don’t let all the hard work of a good rotisserie chicken go to waste without serving it with a delicious side salad. The versatility of the ever so flavourful and succulent chicken lends itself to being matched with a massive array of salads. Time to get inspired!
A good rotisserie chicken is one that has been slowly grilling away over hot coals that ends up being the most succulent piece of meat you have ever eaten.
If you’re lucky enough to have a rotisserie rod either over some rustic coal pit or an added accessory to your barbeque, you definitely have a good thing going!
For most of us, we get our rotisserie chicken either from our chicken shop, poultry butcher or the deli section of our supermarket. I’m always so amazed at the consistency of the chicken, how juicy and tasty it is.
This is the perfect on-the-run midweek dinner or if you just want something extra to add to your big grazing table.
The beauty about rotisserie chicken is that it is so easy to match with a good side salad. You can match it with freekeh, Brussels sprouts, avocado or something a bit more refreshing like watermelon.
Check out some of the fantastic sides for rotisserie chicken and we have no doubt you’ll find something to suit your family and friends.
