My friends and I have get togethers on Fridays. We all take turns cooking. Next friday is my turn. I want to make chicken pot pie, but I don't know what to make for a side dish. I would do a salad, but nobody would eat it.

My recipe for the chicken pot pie has peas, carrots, and potatoes. It seems like doing corn or a potato for a side dish would be veggie overload.

Dessert will be New York style cheesecake.

Anybody have a good idea, because I sure don't.

I have always had Chicken Pot Pie as a one dish meal - throw it all in and *poof* dinner.  Look at resturant menus on the Web (Applebees, Crackerbarrel, etc) for insperation for a side.  I have seen Chicken Pot Pie on alot of menues recently. Hope that helps.

Its true a chiken pot pie is a meal on its own however if you're making them a bit smaller then i guess you could do something like mac/n cheese on the side in honor of KFC having the best chiken potpies on earth. Yup man n cheese would be perfect. Not from a box lol but scratch well if ure doing the box thing then go via Velveta. yummers.

Macgyver can build a plane out or paperclips and bubble gum, but Chuck norris can kill him and take it!

Maybe rolls and butter(or your choice of roll topping)? I agree that chicken pot pie pretty much covers the whole dinner thing by itself.  But when I order something like that in a restaurant, there's usually a side of rolls or garlic toast so you have a palate cleanser (not sure how garlic toast qualifies there, but hey...). 


Where did all this fabric come from? I CAN'T have bought THAT much!

I think a salad would go nicely.  Usually when I can't think of what will go, salad usually is it....

I wouldn't serve anything heavy/starchy with chicken pot pie, because the pastry crust on the pot pie would be enough "heft" and breadiness for me.  I might, however, serve a slaw or a healthy lentil or couscous type small-grained salad or a fruit side (applesauce, fruit salad, strawberries and pepper in vinaigrette, etc.).  You could also do a vegetable that isn't represented in the pot pie.  I think asparagus (simmered is easy) would be great with it.  Maybe with a mustard for dipping?

For whatever reason, my palette doesn't equate pastry with breadiness, but I agree something like a slaw or fruit side sounds like a good idea!  Next time I need help figuring out  a menu, I know where to look for advice.  Smiley

What about baked apple slices? Bake them with sugar, cinnamon and a bit of butter, like pie filling without the pie?

If salad is not an option, I guess the best maybe roast veg with chips then... Undecided
