Yum, Constance! That's what I want for dinner!

thanx in advance

Since you have ham in the main dish & serving a salad...

Capellini or angel hair with oil/garlic (aglio olio), and sprinkle w fresh parlsey. You could add some sauteed shrooms.

Pasta & pesto (basil or sun-dried tomato)

Fetucinne alfredo

Pasta w fresh tomato sauce - diced tomatoes, fresh basil & garlic(a light sprinkle of fresh grated parm, if desired)

Couscous

Orzo

Tortellini

Parslied/buttered egg noodles w S&P

Lemon Parsley roasted (or boiled) red potatoes

Penne and zuchinni (as a side, I would use a thin spaghetti/pasta) - try a search here for vyapti's recipe.

Brown rice with a handful of shredded carrot (adds a bit of sweetness), cooked in chicken broth.

Or, if you have some leftover rice in the fridge, chicken fried rice.

Or, better yet, Louisiana style dirty rice, made with chicken livers and gizzards.

Add a vegetable medley to balance out the meal.

I would go with a light pasta dish as well...maybe the buttered noodles with some fresh parsley and garlic.

If it were me, I'd serve something to compliment the chicken and not over power it. The chicken is the star. Roasted potatoes or mashed.

If you want to really cook seasonal, make something like a butternut squash puree.

Yep, you can't go wrong with either of these. Try mashing your potatoes with sour cream and chives, then baking them about 20 minutes--so good!
