Amazing Chicken Pot Pie - my new fav quick dinner

I recently discovered Summerhill Grocery's chicken pot pies and I'm totally addicted. Big chunks of chicken, no cheap filler, amazing puff pastry. Great taste. $4.99 for a small. Quite likely the best savoury pie I've ever had. Total comfort food.

  1. We have some kind of pot pie from there now on a weekly basis. You should try the cheese & broccoli chicken pie, not always available but it's delicious. Also, the quiches are good too.

      Tried the lentil pie - it was awful
      But tried the tortierre this week and it was delightful.

    2. They're great, aren't they? The turkey pot pie is just as good. The steak and mushroom... not so much. I'd skip those if I were you.

      Summerhill Market is a fantastic little place -- especially since it's so darn hard to find the first time.

        Yes, I second the turkey pie. I wish the steak and mushroom had more mushrooms or something in it. We have it once in a while. Definitely pass on the steak & kidney. I didn't try it but a member of my household, usually a steak & kidney pie lover when he's out at a pub, couldn't eat it, found it too strong on kidney flavour.

      2. Chicken pot pie at Cumbrae's is also yummie....traditional pie crust loaded with veggies and chicken....Miranda

        1. Chris Klugman has been the in-house chef there for a number of years. He was (is) always talented. I recall him at several places, especially at Karins (on Cumberland) which was the first non-smoking restaurant in Toronto and one of my faves for a long time - a succession of talented chefs who were seemingly given a free hand (although his bio says before that he was at Stadtlanders - another early favourite of mine).
          Chris can often be seen wandering the store in his whites.

          1. I agree Summerhill Market's pies are great. Somewhere else to try, believe it or not, is the Sobeys on St. Clair just a block or so east of Yonge. The chcken pot pies at the deli counter are excellent - lots of chicken and an amazingly flaky crust. Big enough for two generous portions and somewhere around $5 or so.

              Hmm, interesting. I was there one day and overheard a customer asking the deli manager how early he had to be there to get a meat pie. Apparently, he'd come for the pie and they had already run out. This was around 1 pm.

              I'm going to have to check this pie out. Thanks!
