Taste

I absolutely love chicken pot pie. It’s my idea of a perfect comfort food. I have to say, Costco makes a pretty tasty chicken pot pie but there’s a few things I’d tweak a little bit about their version! First I have to applaud Costco on the large chunks of chicken in the pot pie! There’s a pretty decent amount of large all-white chunks of chicken breast meat. I could always do with MORE chicken though! The sauce is creamy and seasoned well, a little on the overly salty side. The top pastry is golden, delicious, flaky and crispy. The bottom pastry wasn’t great, it was VERY thick and slightly underbaked/soggy. I also wish there were more vegetables In the pot pie, there was only a few small chunks of carrots and peas. I definitely enjoyed the Costco Kirkland Signature chicken pot pie but left a little of my bottom crust as it was pretty soggy and a little too much pastry.

Cost

I purchased the Costco Kirkland Signature Chicken Pot Pie for $9.99 Canadian. Regular price. This is really reasonable for a pie that could easily service five adults! You also don’t need to make a ton of sides with it as it has all the food groups pretty much in one dish.

Convenience

Very easy and convenient to heat up! Heat in the oven at 350 for about 45-60 minutes after removing the pie from the plastic packaging. I also have frozen my Costco Kirkland Signature Chicken Pot Pie after buying it and I just defrost it overnight before baking it according to the package directions.

Nutrition

1/8th of the pie is 390 calories, 23 grams of fat, 410mg of sodium, 31 grams of carbohydrates, two grams of fibre, three grams of sugar and 15 grams of protein. When I look at the ingredients list I’m sad to see a ton of unnatural ingredients but I guess that’s partly to be expected when you’re not making it at home from scratch.

This is a perfect convenient comfort meal and can be enjoyed with just a side salad. It’s definitely not what I would call a healthy meal but most of my favorite comfort foods aren’t exactly healthy!

  1. That’s the problem with most “ready to eat” or heat and serve products at Costco. Way too much artificial ingredients to satisfy the taste buds but aren’t healthy. Of course, you will find proponents stating there is no solid evidence proving this and that is unhealthy. This pie, judging by the pics provided alone suggest to me it’s unevenly baked. Your comment about the underside seems to validate my observation. Perhaps one can buy this only if they can tweak the baking of it. Better still, let’s see your chicken pot pie recipe? 😉

  2. I tried this last night. I agree that it is too salty. The big chunks of chicken were great but the flavor was a little bland. I heated a pizza stone up and set the pie pan on it. it Browned the bottom up some. This pie has a lattice top in California and cost a whopping $19.99 USD , kind of pricey, not sure I would buy again.

  3. Instructions on Costco Chix Pot Pie says you can DEFROST the frozen pie in THE MICROWAVE. It is in an aluminum pie pan. Is this safe????

  4. We love these pies and usually purchase on every month or so.
    Last night, I found a 1 X 1/2 inch triangular piece of clear plastic in my piece.
    Needless we did not finish our dinners and I will be contacting them today for a refund.
    Update- called and they were suitably concerned, and advised would be immediately reviewing that batch. Sent me an incident report and will drop off with plastic piece today
