surely the only veg. to accompany chicken kiev is sweetcorn. Please back me up before DH destroys the lovely kiev's I've been yearning for all day.

In our house it has to be kiev, cheesy mash and baked beans. With having to sign things to Wilf Chicken Kiev is smelly chicken and Garlic Bread is smelly bread......... I dont know the sign for garlic!! Wink

Baked potatoes and salad, or just salad if dieting. Beans are the spawn of the devil I tells ya!

GwendolineMaryLacey · 01/04/2011 18:30

A lot of you seem to be unaware of one of the basic dinner rules. You never do mash with breadcrumbs

Fish fingers, kievs, breaded cod etc, never ever ever with mashed potato. OK? Wink

YADNBU. FFS, beans? Should be shot.

We're having kievs tonight. I was going to do a mix of veggies but this thread has got me thinking mmmmm beans!

anniepanniepears · 01/04/2011 18:36

salad or peas never beans never never never beans

Sorry Netto but I have to disagree... beans and mash on the side of homemade cheese and onion pie is bliss.

NettoSuperstar · 01/04/2011 18:50

Yes, GwendolineMaryLacey, I agree.
I often see people saying they had fishfingers with mash and veg.
Wrong, wrong, wrong.
Mash only goes with gravy dinners, or fish pie.

Fishfingers go with chips and beans/spaghetti, or in a pita with salad.

GwendolineMaryLacey · 01/04/2011 18:53

Thank you Netto. Thank God for sensible people!

Mash and gravy NONONONO what are you thinking

You cannot have a sloppy food with a sauce!

Gravy needs to go on something that soaks it up to become sloppy. Chips, roast pots, yorkshire pud.

Some of you revolt me, quite frankly.

SardineQueen · 01/04/2011 19:00

I bet some of you would have mash with cauliflower cheese.

Or MY GOD cauliflower cheese in a roast with gravy

moogster1a · 01/04/2011 19:02

sardine- are you really dissing mash and gravy. You are very very wrong. it works much better with gravy than roast potatos which can be gravyphobic.

I am not just dissing it I am saying it is an ABOMINATION against the whole of humankind and I will have no truck with it.

What hope is there for the future when people carry on like this, applying sauces to sloppy foodstuffs? How can anyone look to the future with optimism when people are still DEFILING their mealtime platters in this way?

Kevins must be served with peas and potatoes, either boiled or chipped.

Baked beans and oozing garlic butter = WRONG

amberleaf · 01/04/2011 19:51

The thought of it has made me quite hungry tbh!

Baked beans and petit pois [yes together] is very nice, cant remember what made me first try it but its delicious!

I think i agree with the no mash and breadcrumb items tho

squeakytoy · 01/04/2011 20:04

My husband would happily eat beans with kiev but he doesnt get them Grin

In our house, kievs (made from scratch, never bought) are served up with boulangiere potatoes, cabbage or runner beans, and pepper sauce...


bigbeagleeyes · 01/04/2011 20:10

Sweetcorn and chips or new potatoes of course. Then the lovely garlicy butter flows out and you dip your corn/chips/new potatoes into it.
I thought everybody knew that.
Beans have their uses but not in this instance.

MorticiaAddams · 01/04/2011 20:23

Peas and sweetcorn but definitely not beans.

My SIL's ex cooked her a special meal one evening and gave her salmon with baked beans!
