What to serve with chicken pot pie
Here are 11 delicious sides for chicken pot pie that you must try:
1. Mashed potatoes
Let me say this once and for all – there’s no dish out there that can give competition to the creaminess of buttery mashed potatoes!
As you can probably tell, I love mashed potatoes! The secret to buttery, silky potatoes lies in using a ricer instead of a masher. The succulent potatoes will go perfectly with freshly prepared chicken pot pie.
2. Apple sauce
Apples go well with all the ingredients in a chicken pot pie, including the chicken and veggies. This means that a deliciously sweet, tangy, and supple apple sauce is just what your pie needs!

3. Corn on the cob
If you’re looking for a simple side dish for chicken pot pie, opt for corn on the cob. You can boil the corn and have it as is for an easy and light side.
Alternatively, you can grill it and then top it with some herbs, spices, and lemon juice for your pie's flavorful side.
4. Pickled veggies
Another great idea is to serve your chicken pot pie with a side of pickled veggies. The veggies' tanginess and crispiness will balance the simple flavor and flaky texture of the pie pastry quite nicely.
You can also opt for veggies such as carrots, beets, asparagus, and even olives!
