Our family tried the Chicken Pot Pie and it was very good.

This was awsome! Cooked in 25 minutes. So easy to make for my family even after working a 10 hour day. And it looked and tasted homeade. My husband, 12 year old and 2 year old all loved it! I did buy two because my family can eat. Plus I was able to take left overs to work.

Buttery crust, big pieces of chicken, nice fresh veggies with a creamy flavorful sauce.

Sorry–not nearly as good as the previous version. A slab of crust, not very tender; chicken was tough and tasteless. Disappointed in this new version–loved the previous one!

my wife bought chicken pot pie and heated via microwave. the crust was impossible to cut, even with a bread knife. the old version was a lot better. the ingredients was the same as the old version, but the crust was a disaster.

Why o why did they change the crust?.. Used to be so good but now is blah.Bring back the crispy puffy buttery crust

they changed the recipe and it’s not NEARLY as good as the original. Much less chicken, and crust not nearly as flaky. Used to go to TJ’s just to purchase their fresh pot pie. Won’t bother now. Another corporate “cheap out”

Terrible. The filling was almost foam like and there was no flavor- it needed salt and pepper. Will not purchase again.

My husband, who eats everything, was very excited about this. But while it was cooking (we followed the instructions to bake in the oven) there was an odd odor that didn’t smell like chicken, smelled more like rotten fish. When it was done, we dished up and he took one bite and for the first time ever had to spit it out. He never spits out his food, and usually powers through anything, but he gagged immediately. I didn’t even bother to try it after seeing his reaction as I already was turned off by the odor. We had to dump it out and take it out to the garbage as it smelled up our house. The taste was one of the worst things we ever tasted. He described the flavor as what he would expect poop to taste like. The expiration date said 4/4, which is in 3 more days, so it wasn’t past expiration. Won’t buy again. Ruined our dinner for the night, had to scramble to make something else.

It tastes like poop it was completely inedible we had to make PB & J’s after our Family tried it. We were so disappointed and my dad ate the when pie and we hope he doesn’t get sick and die.

WHY did you mess with perfection?!?
What the heck fugue state was behind the decision to take the BEST PART OF THE PIE OFF THE PIE?!?!
NO PUFF PASTRY CRUST?????
I wanted to weep.
And now there is too much chicken and it’s dry. One tiny piece of potatoe? Hardly any mushrooms?
Major let down.
You ruined my dinner.
And this product.
You should lower the price.
This is now only worth $5.

We picked up a family favorite, Chicken pot pie for dinner and we were all so sad. I notice the package was different and it was a $1 cheaper but didn’t think they had actually changed anything. They replaced the buttery flakey crust with a doughy topper. The filling didn’t even come up half way. Such a disappointment!

Filling tastes and smells like spoiled milk; very strange almost acidic bite. Yes it was properly refrigerated and yes it was well within the “use by” date. Also like others have mentioned, huge slices of RAW potatoes. How does this even make it to store shelves?

I didn’t realize that I was buying it from the refrigerated section and put it in the freezer when I got home. No way was this going to be heated in 25 min I thought. I was right. Stone cold. The problem is there is NOWHERE on the box that it says “cook from frozen” or if refrigerated/thawed. Most foods have instructions for these options or at least warn you not to freeze/thaw. It only states perishable keep“refrigerated. Duh. Please improve cooking instructions as most of us toss our meat items in the freezer with the exception of what’s for dinner that night. We don’t remember which case we retrieved it from.

Terrible. Bad flavor, bad texture, no apparent top crust. Yuck. WAY below T Joe standards. Has anyone in Trader Joe management tasted this? Cheap supermarket versions far superior, hard as that might be to believe.
Ghastly. You should take this off the market until you are able to make significant improvements. Giving it one star, I guess, because it did not make me ill.

This chicken pot pie with super disappointing I’m actually really disgusted by the fact that trader Joe’s has caved in to corporate greed and substituted this inferior box of crap for what was initially a great pie. It was also very disappointing to find that there is absolutely no instructions on the box regarding no freezing. It literally took forever to cook and I finally had to eat something else and disappoint my neighbor who am I invited to share my pie. it seems like more and more trader Joe’s has become greedy and has sold out their values for delivering a great product in favor of corporate greed super disappointed it’s actually despicable.
Okay… I’m actually going to do what probably doesn’t get done very often. I’m changing my review. Unbeknownst to me, my neighbor went back to trader Joe’s and got a second chicken pot pie….he loves them. I had just finished trying the first pie and I gave it a scathing review. It took way too long to cook and lacked a Do Not Freeze label…it did not meet my standards. But, I must say that the second pie that my neighbor brought home…the exact same kind of pie from trader Joe’s, was a completely different pie. The Crust was flaky and crispy…the sauce was absolutely divinely delicious and fresh. I must say I would be disappointed if I hadn’t tried the pie twice. I would not have known what deliciousness I was truly missing out on. I don’t know what was wrong with my first pie. Clearly something wasn’t right with it. It was frozen when I started and took too long to cook so I was already frustrated but this pie…this second pie was sheer perfection…so delicious so perfect in every way. I want to encourage anyone who gave it a bad review to try it again I think you’ll be glad you did. I was…simply yummy!!!

Dreadful. And I usually love chicken pot pie. Big chunks of raw carrots and potatoes and little bits of chicken but overall the worst taste and smell. Definitely not up to Trader Joe standards.

Funny reading these reviews. I tried one and was pleasantly surprised. I usually throw out leftovers but I saved it and ate it again. And then I went back to the store and bought two more. One of the things I liked most was it wasn’t full ofFatty sauce
