This chicken breasts recipe is perfect served with a few simple sides. I like to choose either rice or potatoes and a green veggie. Smashed potatoes, cauliflower mash, rice, or garlic asiago cauliflower rice are all great options because they will absorb the sauce. Roasted broccoli, asparagus, Brussels sprouts, or green beans would round out the perfect meal.

You could also serve this pan fried chicken over pasta or zoodles. Place the chicken breasts on top of a heaping serving of pasta or zoodles and spoon the sauce right on top.
