What Would Be a Good Light Side Dish for Roast Chicken?

Good Questions

Q: I'm cooking dinner for my mother's birthday next week and am looking for help with a side dish! I'm planning on making the famous chicken in milk (for the first time!) and I'm really excited about it, but I'm not sure what to serve on the side.

She and her partner are both on Weight Watchers right now, which adds a bit of a twist to this process (for example, I'm going to keep my fingers crossed that skim milk will have the desired effect on the dish that the suggested whole milk does). Any suggestions would be so helpful!

Editor: Sarah, our main idea would be a high-heat roasted vegetable. Put a tray of Brussels sprouts or broccoli florets in to roast at 425°F for 15 minutes while you carve the chicken. Add a little garlic and soy sauce for extra-special flavor!
