What should I make as a side for chicken pot pie, besides salad?!
If your pot pie is homemade, then load up on the veges and chicken. Since your dad's diabetic, you might want to consult with an on-line diabetic cookbook and see what they suggest. I know that he has to watch his carbs. I'd stick with a spinach salad with crumbled bacon, egg, and a low-sugar/fat dressing.
A healthy side could be sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, rice. Potato pancake 9
Chef's salad, Caesar salad., steamed Cabbage , broccoli, cauliflower.
Here is a recipe for Sweet potato pancakes: http://www.wish.ca/food/recipe/435/
>>> Steamed broccoli, Green beans...asparagus.....Tomato salad is nice also...
Personally, I never find enough veggies in this dish so I would add more. How about oven baked carrots or parsnips?
