Box of Marie Callender's Chicken Pot Pie
Cooked Marie Callender's Chicken Pot Pie

Last weekend was rainy, and a warm chicken pot pie sounded good, so my boyfriend and I bought a box of Marie Callendar's chicken pot pies to try from Costco.

We followed the microwave instructions: we opened the carton, keeping the silver lining on top and microwaved it for six minutes on high, letting it stand for five minutes. The instructions state to also measure the internal temperature afterward to make sure it's at least 165 degrees (F). We made two pies, and both came out at 170 degrees.

The chicken broth filling inside was very salty and almost soupy. The inside of the pie didn't have too much in it, so I did a count of what we found.

In one pot pie, I counted the following:

  • 18 peas
  • 5 pieces of carrot
  • 10 chicken cubes
  • 2 celery bits
  • The peas inside were crisp, and the chicken was nice and chunky. However, the carrots and celery were mushy, and the pastry is very dense / not very flaky.

    It started out tasting OK, but I couldn't finish the whole thing because it got too salty. I also had to eat a banana afterward to make myself feel better.

    REVIEW – Marie Callender’s Chicken Pot Pie (Frozen)

    • Ben McMillan

      Just ate my first chicken pot pie from Marie Callender’s. I was disappointed with the amount of chicken, there was only 3 pieces cubed which was very small. Has an excellent taste but disappointed in the amount of chicken. Carrots and peas were ok if there was celery and onion I couldn’t tell.

      I’ve tried the chicken and the beef.
      On nights I’m so tired I just can’t cook.
      In the OLD day this product had more than 5 tiny carrots and the tiny celery pieces they are hard to identify. The meat is like the stuff I cut off a steak that is not eatable.
      Almost all crust.
      It’s so much it’s gross.
      I’ve been cooking for my family and have been an in home chef for years. This isn’t worthy of giving to my pets.
      Really what happened to quality.
      Did you sell out to ????
      I hate to say it so I wont .
      What you are selling is pathetic.

      Just ate one of your small chicken pot pies. There was not one piece of chicken in the pot pie. Lots of peas and carrots but no CHICKEN. You might change the name to veggie pot pie. Very disappointed.

      I just had a 10 oz chicken pot pie. There was mostly crust, 2 slices of carrots, 15 peas, 1 piece of celery & 5 small chunks of chicken! What has happened to the pot pies that were like the ones we see in your commercials on TV?
