Review: Marie Callender’s Pot Pies

Being married to a firefighter means that there are a few nights during the week where he’s at work and I’m at home. Of course I miss my husband but the bright side of this is that I don’t have to cook dinner! It’s just me and my daughter so I’ll usually have leftovers, take-out or a frozen meal.

I love the convenience of frozen meals but I’m also very picky. Something I always keep in my freezer is frozen pot pies. You can’t go wrong with a pot pie. It’s a simple, healthy and filling meal. My favorite has to be Marie Callendar. The serving is generous and the price is affordable, around $2.10-$2.99. You can find it in your local grocer in the frozen food section.

I was excited to be able to review for you Marie Callendar’ Pot Pies. Marie Callender’s Pot Pies are a wholesome and complete dinner solution made with no preservatives —perfect for the whole family! It’s also a delicious, comforting and warm meal during the cold-weather months.

They are available in these varieties:
Chicken Pot Pie
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

I decided to try the Honey Roasted Chicken Pot Pie and I loved how easy it was to prepare. I heated up mines in the oven although you can heat yours up in the microwave in a lot less time.

I took it out of the box

Followed the instructions on the bottom of the box

Filled with juicy meat, tender vegetables and golden, flaky crust

Marie Callender’s meals are available in grocery stores nationwide. Product lines include Complete Meals, One-Dish Entrées, Fresh Flavor Steamers, Fresh Mixers, Multi-serve Bakes, Pot Pies, small Fruit Pies and Dessert Pies & Cobblers.
