Marie Callender’s Chicken Pot Pie is a wholesome and delicious meal to serve your family on those busy evenings.
It is now December! For the last couple of weeks, I told myself that I still have Thanksgiving, and the busyness of December is still far away. Well, it is now here and our days (and nights!) are filled with events, programs and Christmas fun.
Of course, Christmas means lots and LOTS of baking. Now, since I enjoy baking, that part is not a problem for me. (Most of the time.) After all, we do have four children so finding the time to bake while keeping up with family obligations can be tough. To be honest, finding time (and energy!) to whip up a filling and delicious supper isn’t all that easy after being in the kitchen baking all day.
I found that Marie Callender’s Chicken Pot Pie is the perfect solution for those nights where you want a wholesome meal that doesn’t take a lot of effort. The taste of the chicken pot pie is like homemade and it is made with quality ingredients. I feel that a warm, delicious meal is so important to bring a family together anytime of year, but especially when the days and nights are so busy. Supper time is a time to connect and take a minute to tell each other about our day.
Marie Callender’s Pot Pies can be easily found at Walmart in the Frozen Entrees aisle. I also wanted to make a side dish for the meal and I thought a chicken pot pie with vegetable couscous would be a great dinner for my family. While I was at Walmart, I stopped by the fresh produce section and picked up the vegetables needed for the couscous.
Marie Callender’s Chicken Pot Pie is easy to prepare.
I bought the Family Size Chicken Pot Pie for my family with “family size” appetite! (Here is a Ibotta rebate for the family size chicken pot pie.) I also picked up a Beef Pot Pie for the beef fans in my family.
A great tip to know is to cover the pie with foil so the edges won’t get burned while cooking. Make sure to poke a few holes in the top of the crust too.
The chicken pot pie tastes homemade. The chicken and vegetables are wrapped in the comfort of a golden flaky crust. Your family will love the comfort food and you will love the ease in preparation! To make the vegetable couscous, I simply cut up the vegetables.
Then put them in a frying pan with a little bit of olive oil. I used orange pepper, green pepper and mushrooms. The house smelled wonderful while the pot pie was cooking and the vegetables were frying!
I then brought chicken broth and butter to a boil then added the couscous. I removed from heat then added the vegetables. I covered the pot and let stand for 5 minutes. Easy!
Combining the great taste of Marie Callender’s Chicken Pot Pie with the vegetable couscous made a delicious, comforting and family friendly meal.
