chicken pot pie?

the daily grill by dupont serves a good one-real pastry top, not too heavy.

anyone else eaten a good version recently?

  1. I know it is a chain, but chicken out makes a good pot pie that I like, I believe it is full pie shell on both top and bottom.

    1. If you're willing to travel to Baltimore (or make a stop on the way to some point North) I highly recommend the chicken pot pie at Soup's On/Rose's Cookies in Hampden. The crust is buttery and flaky, the chunks of breast meat are juicy and flavorful, and every pea and carrot seems specifically chosen for that pot pie to be as delicious as possible. A ginger snap from Rose's makes for the perfect comfort-food dessert. This chicken pot pie manages to be rich-tasting but not heavy, which I think makes it near-perfect.

      1. I like the one served by tacqueria nacionale over by Union Station/Johnny's Half Shell. They are a bit small so you may want to order two. Also, they only serve it for lunch on Wednesdays.

        1. re: botnot

          The City Paper this week mentions a tasty Chicken Pot Pie, while reviewing The Dutch Market:

          Pennsylvania Dutch Market
          Cockeysville, Md 11121

          "The wonderfully soul-soothing chicken pot pie ($7.45 for the platter) features hunks of tender stewed chicken swimming in broth with vegetables and big square homemade egg noodles. The platter comes with two vegetables; try the homemade chow chow (pickled vegetable salad) or zesty stewed tomatoes."

          1. re: bmore_flavor

            The Pennsylvania Dutch chicken pot pie is not the same thing as the OP is asking about, but more of a soup with large pieces of noodle in it. It doesn't have a pastry crust.

              In Pa Dutch Country it is called Slippery Pot Pie...

        2. There's a tiny lunch place on East Gude drive in Rockville called "Soups On!" that serves the best chicken pot pie I've ever had.

          Their soups are amazing too!

            reiflame, do you know if the Soup's On! I mentioned in Baltimore has an outpost in Rockville? If so, I agree, their chicken pot pie is the most delicious one I've ever had. I'll also be making a lot more trips to Rockville....

            1. re: Hungry Man

              There is also a Soup's On! in Perry Hall on Belair Rd. Lots of tasty soups plus a friendly staff:

                Hrmmm...looking at the above website, it doesn't seems so - the soup selection is different. I think the one in Rockville is family operated (like, a husband/wife and her mother) but that doesn't mean it's not franchised or anything.

                I'll ask next time I go.

            2. I've had pot pie a couple times at Irish Channel Pub. Good, if not particularly distinctive.
