Frozen Friday: Claim Jumper - Chicken Pot Pie

Claim Jumper Chicken Pot Pie box
Claim Jumper's Chicken Pot Pie frozen dinner weighs in at a hefty 18 ounces (more than enough for two people) and features a flaky pie crust filled with the typical filling of chicken, peas, carrots, celery, and potatoes. They're usually around $4, but I got this one on sale for $1.50 on a particularly cheap sale at Ralph's.

Do be careful when you're cooking the pie in the microwave as they tend to spill out a bit. The box also tends to stick to the microwave or plate leaving sticky paper residue. I would recommend placing the box on some paper napkins before cooking.

Out of the microwave, you might want to break the crust a bit and let it cool ten minutes or so; the stew inside gets really hot.

I really like the super flaky crust; it's consistently crispy and flaky all around the pie. Pot pies come out really well out of the microwave ever since they invented that grey crisping material. The stew inside was fairly thick and featured nice big chunks of white meat chicken. The veggies were a bit sparse though, I mostly saw and tasted peas and not much of any other vegetables. I did share half with my brother though so maybe he stole them all.

Whatever the case, Claim Jumper makes a damn fine frozen pot pie. One of my favorite frozen food items for sure.
