What to Serve with Chicken Pies?
The chicken pie is a British classic! With tender chunks of chicken, a creamy, flavoursome sauce and a buttery, crumbly pastry case to hold it all together, it's no wonder!
While we'd certainly scoff one on its own, when it comes to a sit-down dinner, you might want to add some side dishes to create a filling meal that the whole family can enjoy. You might even want to elevate the humble chicken pie and serve it at a dinner party, in which case your choice of sides will make all the difference.
The great news is that chicken pie goes well with many side dishes, so whatever your tastes and whatever you are looking to do with it, you'll be able to find the perfect accompaniment to serve with your chicken pie that is sure to go down a treat!
Our Favourite Side Dishes to Serve with Chicken Pies
Potatoes, potatoes, glorious potatoes! The great thing about them is how versatile they are. You can roast them, mash them, boil them, fry them - have them whichever way you like them best. We think a buttery mash works wonders when served alongside a chicken pie. It's smooth, buttery and slightly salted, making it perfectly paired against the creamy filling and crumbly texture - a match made in heaven!
Sweet and succulent and packed full of goodness, carrot and parsnip mash will not disappoint. A great alternative to mashed potatoes, a carrot and parsnip mash gives a warming, earthy flavour, and a sweetness that goes great alongside a hearty, savoury chicken pie.
Pie and chips is a classic meal that has earned its place in the British culinary hall of fame. Hot, salty beer battered chips are among our favourites, with a crisp outside and fluffy inside that works perfectly with the creamy, meaty chicken pie. They are great for mopping up the sauce too. If you fancy something a little different, sweet potato chips are a great alternative to the potato and have lots of vitamins B and C too!
