    We don't. We just serve that and nothing else. It's such a hearty, heavy dish (that gets heavier later!) that I don't think I could stand potatoes or bread with it.

    We always have Butter beans (Lima Beans) like this recipe Southern Lima Beans With Rice, but without the rice!

    With a hearty carb such as dumplings, I'd be sure to add a healthy green, leafy side dish such as a romaine lettuce or spinach salad with some cucumbers, tomatoes, and green peppers. Or, if a warm side dish is more to your taste, I'd suggest kale or collards or spinach -- anything green! Yum!

    We do our chicken and dumplings Bohemian--style, with sour cream in the sauce instead of the cream, and maybe a little milk to thin it out if need be. The celery and onion stay, of course.

    What's the greatest is putting baby carrots in while everything is simmering. They're very tasty, and don't seem to get too mushy.

    The sides we traditionally have with this are beets and green beans, but these days I do tend to serve a salad with plenty of greens, just because fresh stuff is so easy to get now.

    Sorry, I know I am too late but maybe for future referance. This was one I had trouble with too but with the help of my daughter and the Cracker Barrel menu icon_wink.gif I found a few options.

    I think of chicken and dumplings as a southern US dish so in that tradition I usually serve one of the following:
    Collard Greens - It's Good for You!
    The Best Southern Green Beans
    Bev's Sauteed Yellow Squash
    Southern Black-eyed Peas

    Spinach would be good too, steamed broccoli, a side salad, fried green tomatoes, peas, lima beans (make them like the black eyed peas to keep it southern)...My oldest girl said she has had it over rice and agrees with the mashed potato and corn bread ideas but I tend to think thats too much of a good thing (starch). She is southern to the core tho so she knows southern food as she has spent a good part of her 9 years stuffing her face with it lol. She also suggests fried okra which I may try next time.

    I hope your meal was wonderful.
