looking for something that might pair well with my chicken that's on the sweet and savory side of things
Two ideas, each of which works with the maple chicken and may make a meal:
1) bitter or strong tasting vegetables to contrast with the sweet (broccoil rabe, brussels sprouts, radishes, cabbage, kale, dandelion greens, arugula)
2) corn in some format...goes well with the maple (not a contrast). Kernels, polenta, cornbread.
Good luck and please let us know what you served.
Nancy has some great options, especially the Brussels sprouts. Roasted or mashed sweet potatoes would be my choice to go with the veggies, or if you prefer regular potatoes. Roasted rainbow carrots too
Couscous with onions & garlic & the zest of one orange
