The 20 best side dishes to serve with chicken burgers for kids

Trying to serve your kids an at least semi-well rounded meal? Here are the best side dishes to serve with chicken burgers for kids!

If your kids are much like mine, when I ask them what they want to eat, they will yell back either CHICKEN NUGGETS or MAC N CHEESE!

The basics are king around here.

However, a chicken burger is not a whole meal (usually).

I serve my 1 and 3 year old in these divided silicone plates so they get 1 “main dish” and 2 sides.

One of our sides is always cut up fruit: berries, sliced apples, sauteed apples, sliced banana, mandarin oranges, something like that.

The second side is what is up in the air. For breakfast, it’s a yogurt pouch. For lunch, it’s either goldfish or chex mix. For dinner, I try for more of a side dish.

But, if you are like me, when it’s time to make food your brain goes completely blank as to what to cook.

If you are wondering what to eat with chicken burgers, there are loads of possibilities!

Also pay attention to if you serve your chicken burger on a bun or not. If you serve it on a bun, you probably don’t want a biscuit on the side!

Below I am rounding up my best ideas of what to serve with chicken burgers. I will round up a general list of ideas and then keep scrolling to links to actual recipes for some great ones!
