Side Dish for Chicken In A Pot

Asked by Laurenapost. Answered on 10th February 2020

Full question

I will be cooking the Chicken in a Pot for 6 people and I'm not sure it's enough for all of us. What do you suggest is a good side dish for this recipe?

Our answer

Nigella's Chicken In A Pot With Lemon And Orzo is an all-in-one dish as it includes vegetables and pasta and should serve 4-6 people if you have a decent-sized chicken. We would suggest using a slightly larger chicken, if possible and the cooking time should be fine for a chicken up to 2kg. If possible, with a larger chicken, take the chicken out of the fridge about an hour before you cook it, to let it lose its fridge chill and cook more easily.

If you need to add an extra side dish then we would suggest adding a salad. A good green salad with a lemon vinaigrette would match well or if you would like to add something a little more substantial then we would suggest trying Nigella's Spinach, Avocado And Pumpkin Seed Salad.
