What do you suggest as an accompaniment for the Maple Chicken 'N' Ribs?
Nigella's Maple Chicken 'N' Ribs (from NIGELLA EXPRESS) is a great sharing dish and is fairly informal, so side dishes do not need to be too fussy. We would suggest some easy to prepare salad dishes to serve alongside. A green salad would work well and we would suggest adding something like the New Orleans Coleslaw as an accompaniment. This can be assembled in advance, though you may want to add the nuts just before serving so that they stay crunchy. The Crunchy Salad With Hot And Sour Dressing could be an alternative if you prefer something slightly more spicy.
As the Maple Chicken 'N' Ribs have an American BBQ feel, you may want to serve a potato salad alongside and we would suggest Nigella's Spring Potato Salad With Asparagus And Radish at this time of year (this could also double up as a green salad element). Mac and cheese is also popular and you could try the Sweet Potato Macaroni Cheese, which can be made in one large dish to conserve oven space and also cooks at the same oven temperature as the chicken and ribs. Soft bread rolls could also be served and if you wanted to make your own then try Nigella's Soft White Dinner Rolls.
