For example, let's say I found a wonderful roasted chicken. Is there a way to see what side items would be great with it?

There are related recipes that pop on on the left side of every recipe, but they might be related because they're both chicken, or both fall, or both gluten-free, for example.
So you might find great seasonal sides that would fit well, but if you can also play around with our recipe search here: http://food52.com/recipes (which has helpful filters to narrow down results) or ask for advice here on the Hotline!
