Quick review: Lets be honest, Marie Callendars dominates when it comes to frozen pot pies. Their instantly recognizable green and white boxes pack most freezer aisles. This pie from Boston Market is a reasonable alternative and weighs in a hefty 16 ounces. While BM reckon this pie should feed two (a whole pie is a massive 140% days saturated fat) we all know we’re eating this pie by ourself.
The pie cooks up pretty much like its peers, an hour or so in the oven with foil protecting the edges while it cooks. The pastry is quite rich, as you’d expect from all those calories – close to 1,000 per pie. There’s a decent amount of chicken in the white gravy that’s peppered with carrots, peas and corn. The chicken is the mushy stuff you find in canned soups. It’s all fairly generic, and non offensive. Just keep an eye on that nutrition.
