Stouffer’s White Meat Chicken Pot Pie Review

Stouffer's White Meat Chicken Pot Pie

A pot pie can be quite a tasty meal (though, if you believe some of Freezer Meal Frenzy’s commenters, it can also be a pretty controversial one). So when we discovered the Stouffer’s White Meat Chicken Pot Pie, we knew we had to give it a taste.

This pot pie comes in a box that has a crisping shield built into it. When you cook it, you’ll want to open up the side of the box, then stick the whole thing into the microwave for about six and a half minutes. After this, you’ll want to let it sit for two minutes or so. Obviously, you don’t want to take the pot pie out of the box before heating it, or you won’t get the benefit of the crisping shield.

Now, this thing really loves to stick to the dish that it comes in, which also has a crisping shield built into it. We tried to get a good cross-section picture, which gave us a lot of difficulty because we couldn’t get the pot pie out of the dish. We ended up hacking the whole dish in half to get the above photo, and if you look closely, we really destroyed the crust in the process. We’re guessing this is designed to be eaten right out of the dish rather than removed from it.

Even when it’s beat up, the crust still tastes very good. The crisping shields really do a good job of preventing this from turning into a soggy mess. It’s brittle and dry and crumbly, just as any good pot pie crust should be.

Inside that tasty crust, you’ll find a pretty simple meal. The bulk of the filling is a creamy gravy, and it tastes quite good. It’s thick and creamy, and it has a bit of a chicken broth flavor to it.

Now, we would have preferred a dark meat here, but as the name implies, the meat portion is a white-meat chicken. It tastes pretty good, especially when soaked in that gravy, but it just doesn’t have the rich, meaty flavor that darker meats typically have.

You’ll also find some veggies inside, though there’s not a whole lot to talk about when it comes to the vegetable portion. We think we found maybe six peas in the entire meal. While the carrot portion is slightly more generous than the pea portion, don’t expect to find this thing loaded up with carrots. Both of these vegetables take a back seat to the chicken and the gravy. And you know what? We really don’t mind that.

This pot pie is no slouch in the calorie department. One of these suckers contains 630 calories (310 from fat). Now, this isn’t the fattiest pot pie we’ve ever eaten (that honor probably goes to Trader Joe’s Steak & Stout Pies, which have 800 calories each). The sodium is pretty outrageous too, at 890 mg. You’ll definitely not want to eat pot pies every day. Oof.

The Stouffer’s White Meat Chicken Pot Pie is a delicious meat pie, though it’s loaded with calories and sodium. If you love a good pot pie and you prefer white meat to dark meat, this meal has a lot to love.
