Choosing the best side dishes for the 10 piece KFC bucket is a matter of personal food preference. As of 2015, KFC offers eight side dishes, including mashed potatoes, green beans, biscuits, corn on the cob and cole slaw. It also offers macaroni and cheese, kernel corn, and potato wedges.
For calorie-counters, green beans and kernel corn are the best choices, according the nutritional information provided by KFC. The mashed potatoes come with the KFC exclusive recipe gravy, while the potato wedges feature a signature blend of spices. The cole slaw is made in-house, and KFC advertises the biscuits as the best complement to its chicken.
