What is your favorite chicken pot pie? Does it have a dough crust on the sides and bottom!

So far, we like Marie Calendars and Trader Joes.

    We've been getting Marie Calendars at Costco for a while now. A nice, inexpensive dinner when we don't want to cook. As you know, fully "crusted" :)

      +1. And a great deal when they're running a coupon for them at Costco.

        My parents always have one in the freezer too.... Always have. They are very brand loyal! (I don't eat chicken)

        If you are in New England, check out Willow Tree Farm's frozen pot pies. Exceptional for a supermarket product.

            I had one and found it harrowing.

                'Twas but a joke. Never actually seen a Harrow's let alone eaten one.

              I FINALLY bought a harrows pie and thought it was less than tasty . I guess I expected more .

              But the real issue was that it caused some upsetting intestinal distress.......

                Interesting. I've never bought one, but I always thought they got good reviews.

                  After listening to their ads for a lifetime I found myself driving past their store in Dedham and bought one and cooked it up at home that night (you have to call ahead to pick it up already baked).

                  Good amount of chicken, very heavy on the crust which was also good but it was really bland and under seasoned. And "went through me" like the dickens.

                    I've heard they are well filled with chicken. Too bad on the bland/underseasoning AND the quick passage. Guess I'll stick with making my own.

            Back int the day, Dad would buy Meyer's chicken pot pies. THEN they were probably 2" deep with top crust only. Had BIG chunks of white meat chicken in them. They were big enough that 2 was planty to feed the 4 of us. We did a little "gambling" by deciding, sight unseen, which side we wanted... ya never knew WHERE the largest pieces of chicken would turn up. Pretty sure they're still around? Last time I saw/tried one, they were no more than 1" deep... still pretty tasty but not nearly as much meat in them.

              Priscilla's Chicken Pot Pie at The Fresh Market is really good. I don't know if they're sold anywhere else. Double crust and sides too. Nice tender chicken and vegetables in a tasty sauce. It could pass for homemade.

                Sentimentally, it's all about Swanson's for me!
