What To Serve With Chicken Pot Pie

Chicken Pot Pie is a staple recipe for busy (and hungry) families! It’s an easy one-pot meal to make, and you can fill it with all sorts of vegetables. Our chicken pot pie has a crispy, flaky, buttery crust that holds tender bites of chicken and veggies in a rich cheese sauce.

It’s hearty and comforting and is perfect for every occasion from weeknight dinner to centre stage at a dinner party.

While this classic dish is delicious, it can be a struggle to decide what to serve with it. While you may add vegetables to the pie itself, you may want something else on the side to make it into a more substantial meal.
