A creamy chicken pot pie filling with a flaky pie crust is the perfect addition to a cozy family gathering imparting the feeling of nostalgia and warmth. Feeding your family a Marie Callender’s Pot Pie contributes to that feeling by giving you comfort in a golden, flaky crust.
When fall hits and we edge into winter, the desire for comfort food increases. To me, comfort speaks the language of warm fires in the fireplace and family close by. I am looking forward to having both of my sons home for Christmas this year. Christopher’s girlfriend Miriah, will be coming to New York with him for the first time and if she is lucky, we will have some snow for her! When they are here we want to enjoy time with them and what better way to save time and offer warmth than to serve them Marie Callender’s Pot Pie with a special holiday side salad to compliment it!
What I love about these pot pies is they taste like homemade. The flaky crust has a buttery taste to it and is nice and thick. I have never had a problem with a soggy bottom crust with these pies. Grumpy says you have to follow the baking instructions to get the best result, and I totally agree with him! Always make sure your oven is preheated and always cover the edges of the pie crust with tin foil to prevent burning.
We love these pot pies, and at my recent Walmart trip I picked up some extras to have on hand. I keep a stash of them in the freezer all the time! These pies not only taste like homemade, but they also are convenient for Grumpy to make when I am not home! They come in three different sizes, 45 ounce, 16 ounce and 10 ounce. I call these Family sized, Grumpy sized, and Honeybunch sized!
