What to Serve With Chicken Pot Pie

When you’re serving a lot of guests, you’ll want to accompany your chicken pot pie with other side dishes to round out the meal. 

Just keep in mind that chicken pot pie should be treated like the star that it is.

1. Crudite

Let’s start your meal with a clean and crunchy appetizer. Chicken pot pie is super rich, so a light plate of crisp raw veggies is perfect for cutting through that savory flavor.

Just slice up some carrots, celery, cucumbers, broccoli, and cauliflower, arrange them in a nice platter, and place a yogurt dip at the center. 

Spinach Salad

2. Salad

While chicken pot pie has some veggies in it, it’s still quite lacking in roughage. Add some fiber to your meal by serving some salad on the side.

It’s light, crisp, and nutritious – a fantastic contrast to the rich and hearty entrée. 

A spinach salad with a tangy orange dressing will go well with your savory casserole.

Toss together spinach, oranges, cheese, nuts, your favorite berries, and drizzle them with the citrus vinaigrette. How sublime.

roasted vegetables

3. Roasted Veggies

Serving a side of roasted veggies is a brilliant way to bulk up your meal without overpowering your entrée.

You can use whatever veggie you like, such as carrots, potatoes, bell peppers, and cauliflower.

But here’s my suggestion: roasted broccoli topped with Parmesan. It’s creamy, crunchy, and downright delicious. 

It’s incredibly easy to make, too. Coat some broccoli florets in olive oil, sprinkle them with parmesan cheese, and pop them in the oven.

Not only does it go well with CPP, but pretty much any other entrée!

Mashed Sweet Potatoes

4. Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Chicken pot pie is all about savory and salty flavors, so why not add some contrasting flavors and textures? Enter mashed sweet potatoes.

It’s smooth, creamy, and has the right amount of sweetness to cut through the richness of your casserole. And you can also use the mash to mop up the gravy!

German Potato Salad

5. German Potato Salad

You don’t have to be German to love this potato salad variation.

Sure, it doesn’t have that creamy mayo dressing that we know and love, but believe me, this vinegar-based coating is also just as good.

And, since chicken pot pie is super savory, you’ll want this tangy dish to contrast the flavor.

Plus, it has bacon – lots and lots of it – so it will be a fan favorite for sure.

Glazed Carrots

6. Glazed Carrots and Parsnips

Give your casserole a sweet side by serving caramelized carrots and parsnips. Just cook these guys in butter and brown sugar and you’re done!

Corn on The Cob

7. Corn on the Cob

Chicken pot pie is not the easiest dish to cook. It takes a while to make, so you’ll want an effortless side dish that will still complement the entrée’s flavors and textures.

A simple corn on the cob will do the trick.

Just boil those golden beauties for several minutes and you’re all set. If you want a faster approach, here’s a suggestion: microwave them!

It cuts your cooking time but still yields a delightful sweet corn.

asparagus

8. Asparagus

These nutritious spears will give your pot pie a contrasting crunch, and all you’ll need is some lemon juice and pepper to flavor it! It couldn’t get any easier than that.

Brussels Sprouts and bacon

9. Brussels Sprouts and Bacon

For another light and crunchy side dish, how about some roasted Brussels sprouts? Pair the sprouts with some salty and smoky bacon for more flavor and texture!

This pair forms a delightful combo that enhances the flavor of the chicken pot pie. The colors also add more vibrancy to your plate.

Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

10. Cauliflower Mac and Cheese

If you are a huge fan of mac and cheese, here’s a great alternative that goes well with chicken pot pie.

Using cauliflower instead of pasta will make a lighter dish without sacrificing flavor.

You’ll still get all that creamy and cheesy goodness, minus all the filling starch.

Unsweetened Iced Tea

11. Unsweetened Iced Tea

Now, for a refreshing beverage. A tall glass of unsweetened iced tea is everything your chicken pot pie needs.

The mild flavor of the tea offers a refreshing contrast to the rich dish. 

Applesauce

12. Applesauce

If you havet a spicy chicken pot pie, you’ll want something fruity for contrast. And that’s what applesauce does.

It gives a sweet and refreshing flavor that cuts through the spices of your casserole. 

Plus, apples have a wonderful relationship with chicken, carrots, celery, and onions.

Whether unsweetened or infused in cinnamon, applesauce will taste terrific with your entrée. It’s a no-brainer!

Cranberry Sauce

13. Cranberry Sauce

Don’t have time to make complicated sides? No problem! A simple cranberry sauce is all you’ll need.

Just season the tart berries with rosemary, thyme, sage, and rosemary, and you’ll get a flavorful sauce. It’s perfect with that creamy and cheesy chicken pot pie.

Together, they create a beautiful symphony of flavors. Yum.

Fruit Salad

14. Fruit Salad

Give your palate a light dessert to round out the meal. A nice clean salad comprising your favorite fruits will do the job well.

You can serve some apple, melon, pear, and kiwi slices as is, or you could drizzle them with maple syrup or honey for more sweetness. How delightful!

Watermelon Slices

15. Watermelon

Last on our list is another simple and refreshing dessert. Watermelon is such a phenomenal fruit, it deserves a special mention!

You need not serve it with other fruits because it’s already spectacular on its own. It’s sweet, juicy, and oh so good for the body. Plus, that rich luscious red hue is gorgeous.
