Chicken Pot Pie

As a kid I remember going to Hudson's Department Store for luch and having a delicious Chicken Pot pie. These were not the usual puff pastry and soupy filling that everyone has now, but rather they were nothing but white meat and gravy. Does anyone know where these can be purchased frozen today? Failing that, does anyone have a good supplier of froxen chicken pot pies? Thanks

    About 2 years ago, when I was visiting my Mom in Florida, she got a surprisingly good one from Sam's Club. I never knew the actual brand, but I love a good chicken pot pie and most frozen ones are disappointing but this family-sized frozen one was darned good.

    I can usually find good non-frozen ones in the deli case at local upscale grocery stores, but they are not cheap.

    I remember watching the video of the big Hudson's in Detroit being imploded. Costco makes a pretty darn good one. It's huge and meaty.

    Although I've learned to eat literally hundreds of items I wouldn't touch as a finicky kid, I still pick out the peas in chicken pot pie.

    I'll second the motion on Costco Chicken Pie. I think it's the best of the store-bought pies I've ever had. Mrs. Oneiron and I usually get 2-3 meals out of one pie. I've gotten past picking out the peas though.

    May I say that I actually LIKE the peas. I used Banquet Chicken-a-la-King as sort of "pea + chicken in gloppy sauce" training wheels when I was an impecunious student. Two bags of that stuff heated (in boiling water then, in a microwave now) and dumped on toast made a cheap, easy meal and it taught me that peas could be your friend, especially if they were the only green thing on your plate most of the time. In later years, I used to enjoy the all-you-can-eat buffets in Reno mostly because pea salad was a specialty there (peas, mayo, big hunks of orange cheese). So I'd never remove the peas from my pot pie.

    The Chicken Pie Diner in Poway, CA serves a meat-and-gravy-only filled chicken pot pie. The only peas are in the gravy poured over the pie. Since hubby is allergic to peas, they put a few julienned carrots in his top gravy for us.
    You can buy their pies frozen and take them home to cook later, if you choose.

    Blake's Turkey Farm puts out excellent chicken pot pies as well as turkey pot pies. They are simply the best frozen pot pies I have ever had. They make both all meat and meat and vegetable pies. Here is a link that describes them further.

    Mrs. Chips likes to make Chicken Pot Pie so I don't usually have to eat it frozen. I feel very lucky.

    Dont try these pies... Forest Hills Foods... In Grand Rapids Twp. (MI). Not too much bigger then the microwavable version made by Banquet... Banquet frozen pot pies run about 60 cents in the frozen food section. Deli sells a slightly bigger, but less tasty (ya, less tasty) version for 3.99/ea. Flavor is just not there, nor is the value. Though rest of the deli, for the most part does good! Also, soups taste like they come out of a bag.. I guess I'll mention a good point... They do offer free WI-FI in the deli seating area... (This is a grocery store by the way)...

    Just to support what Jevmass said about the delicious chicken pot pies from Willow Tree Farms. I was lucky enough to have tasted these at a friend's house in nearby Rhode Island. Incredible! And their chicken salad is so good, too; it really is beyond comparison with anything you could get in a deli (or even make, quite frankly, because their chickens are unbelievably tasty).

    there is an ottomanelli's on bleeker street i think just down from matty umanov's guitar (i think that's bleeker) you might want to call them and see if they make chicken pot pie's there too. i would imagine they use the same recipe.
