Not that I mind. You see,
Me + snow + cold = :(
That's new math, in case you were wondering. Why, yes, I AM as smart as my 4th grader...ehem
Where was I?
Ah, yes. Winter. Cold.
I don't know about you, but I crave warm comfort food in the winter. Could be why my jeans are fitting a little snug these days. You think?
So when TheMotherhood asked if I would like to review Marie Callender's Pot Pies, it was a no brainer. Chicken Pot Pie is truly one of my favorite winter meals and with a retail price of just $2.10-$2.99, these are definitely worth trying out.
The pies are a bit on the small size; the box says it contains a mere 2 servings, but one was filling for my family, along with some yummy bread and cranberry sauce. The pot pie gravy was creamy. The white meat chicken was, well, real chicken. The veggies weren't over cooked and the crust came out nice and flaky. I like that there were zero preservatives added.
This is definitely something I will keep on hand for an easy winter meal. It does take about an hour to cook in the oven, but required zero prep and was ready to serve. Very low maintenance. The downfall is the calories. This is not, i repeat, NOT a low fat meal.
Definitely a stick-to-your-ribs comfort meal though. It's all about making informed choices, right? Know what you're getting into.
If Chicken is not your thing, Marie Callender's Pot Pies come in other varieties, such as:
- Turkey Pot Pie
- Beef Pot Pie
- Creamy Mushroom Chicken Pot Pie
- Creamy Parmesan Chicken Pot Pie
- Honey Roasted Chicken Pot Pie
- Cheesy Chicken Pot Pie
Have you tried these yet? What is your favorite winter comfort meal?
