Chow Hall: KFC New Chunky Chicken Pot Pie Review and Giveaway

kfcontable

The wannabe foodie in me loves to try new items at eateries. I especially enjoy when a fast food establishment puts out a new item on their menu that resembles something that normally wouldn’t be at a fast food joint.

Case in point recently I had the chance to try Kentucky Fried Chicken’s new Pot Pie that was recently added to the menu. It was a cold Friday night and we didn’t feel like going out anywhere to eat and I certainly wanted something a little heartier then just a burger and fries so I thought this would be a good alternate option.

Shockingly enough the first thing my husband and I noticed was the smell of the pot pie. It lit the car up and smelled like something I would make myself.  The smell though wasn’t enough to make the skeptic in me believe that it would be good though.

Soon as we got home we set up our entire meal which consisted of the Bucket and Bites meal which includes eight pieces of chicken, 10 Original Recipe® Bites, two large sides and four biscuits for just $19.99 plus tax (for a limited time) and the Pot Pie.

The size of the pie is enough for two people. In our case it fed 3 because my greedy little son who wouldn’t touch a chicken pot pie before had to have some! We were all in agree-ance that the crust could be sold by itself. It was so good and savory with a tinge of a buttery flavor.

The inside of the pie itself was rich with potatoes, carrots, peas, a creamy gravy and best of all nice shredded pieces of chicken. I personally don’t like huge chunks of meat so the meat was shredded enough to give you a good bite.

The pie itself extends over the aluminum tin and is really flaky just like a pot pie should be. In a nutshell this pie is on par with one that I can make homemade and or $3.99 I think it is definitely worth a try.

    I love all their food it’s all so delicious but I have to say the apple pies! Lol brings back memories of hanging out with my dad when I was little and they haven’t changed a bit in all these years. They are so delicious. KFC apple pies and milk are my sweet tooth fix.

    I literally just got my family KFC for dinner last night! They love the 12 piece bucket meal with their new chicken bites and with mashed potatoes and Mac and cheese, and I treated myself to my favorite, the KFC bowl!

    Mashed potatoes and coleslaw mixed together is my favorite it taste so good. I also like to dip the biscuits in the gravy when they use to sell it separate.
