Frozen Friday: Stouffer's White Meat Chicken Pot Pie

Stouffer's White Meat Chicken Pot Pie features a flaky pie crust filled with pieces of white meat chicken, peas, carrots, celery and onions in a gravy made with real cream.

A Stouffer's pot pie retails for about $3.99 and can be found on sale around the $2.00 mark.

At 10-ounces, Stouffer's White Meat Chicken Pot Pie is a good size; not too big or small.
The crust turned out quite nice; crispy, flaky and buttery.

Breaking into the pie, everything looked on the up-and-up with a good amount of chicken and veggies in a nicely thickened gravy. The vegetables are flash frozen and that definitely helps.
Biting into the pie, the textures were good but too salty... to the point where I didn't want to eat it. Usually, the crust can help temper the saltiness in a pot pie, but the crust here was also salty.

In sum, quality ingredients in good proportion but way too salty for me.

  1. Triple sniff.

    Gazing at the calorie count of all pot pies I am amazed how many calories they tend to contain.

    I am amazed at how many, even the cheap thin-skinned ones without much filling!!!!!!!!

    Is it a conspiracy?

    Anyway, over the years I have noticed that Stouffers tends to offer what I consider to be high-end frozen food offerings.

    I wiggle with eager anticipation even after many years of downing their creamed chipped beef.

    Microwave or boil-in-the-bag in duh, boiling water for a longer period.

    Both methods turn out okay with me.

    In my lard-laden days pour the creamy milk gravy with meat hunks on top of a pile of mashed taters and I dug in with zest.

    Nowadays I pour the concoction atop green beans or brussel sprouts or other less fattening fare or eat it plain.

    There are MANY offerings and I have only eaten a few of those many.

    Their lasagna was really good!!!!!!!!

    Wait for sales if a po' boy such as I.

    In the recent past i paid as little as one-buck per box but i fear inflation has ended those delightful days.

    The relentless price rise of all foods is slapping me in that face. Slap.

    Yet, sales still exist so take advantage of them.

    Regarding sales... check this out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. You're definitely right about Stouffer's lasagna, that's an old favorite of mine too. :)

    I first looked at the nutritional content of a pot pie a couple years ago, and I was also surprised at the high calorie and fat content. I actually don't really like pot pies, but some in my family do so there is often one in our freezer. I saw the nutritional facts, and was thinking "you guys might want to split this next time!" lol I have my own weaknesses too though I guess.
