What To Serve With Honey Garlic Chicken Breasts

One of my favorite side dishes to serve this with is Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes. There is just enough sauce from the chicken to drizzle over the top of the mashed potatoes.

It also goes amazing with Garlic Parmesan Potatoes With Bacon which is pictured above. The Parmesan and bacon compliment the flavors of the honey and garlic.
