What to serve with sticky chicken?
It is really good with rice. I actually have a tip to make dinner even easier and faster.
Learn how to freeze rice and you can make this meal even easier. I love to grab the rice from the freezer in the morning and when we come home it is all ready to reheat and serve.
We do this for lots of meals and it helps put together a quick meal. This saves a ton of time so I would definitely recommend doing this.
If you aren’t freezing rice, you should be!
The sauce is so amazing so you will want something to dip into all of that deliciousness. We love Garlic Bread Cheese Sticks Recipe and it is perfect for getting every last bit of that amazing sauce.
We love to keep things simple around here so we can get dinner on the table fast. It is so easy to pop one of those steam bags of veggies in the microwave.
