Would you serve a carb with this?

i felt like doing something "different" tonight with my chicken cutlets. i placed some slices of ham and some shredded cheese on one cutlet and then put another cutlet on top (kind of like chicken cordon bleu) and then sprinkled breadcrumbs on top. i plan to make a frozen veggie with it (either broccoli, corn or mixed veggies... havent decided yet) would you also serve a carb like tots or rice or just the meat and the veggies? i feel like the chicken itself will be very filling.

  • I would serve a small salad as well.
    Yes some rice on the side would be delightful but you can also serve bread and butter as a side if someone feels the need for a little more.

  • Just make corn with it, it's still a starch.

  • It should be fine with just veggies. But, if you really want a carb, I'd just make a few rolls (one for each of you) adding rice would be too much, IMO.

  • No. Most of the time I skip the carbs, unless it's pasta or rice every once in a while. I haven't ate a regular potato in years.

  • I always serve a meat/protein, a carb and one or two fruits/veggies. I would more than likely serve a carb like corn or potatoes with something like that and not bread or rice...

  • I am always up for carb, but why not sliced tomatos or a cucumber salad? It sounds wonderful!

  • I always serve a carb side with something like that. Mashed potatoes would be a good choice.

    It sounds tasty.
