Sometimes you just don’t have the energy to cook, or perhaps some of you are like me and don’t enjoy cooking. I stumbled across this gluten-free chicken pot pie the other day and was surprised with just how well it tasted! So today I will be sharing with you Blake’s gluten-free chicken pot pie.
Blake’s Gluten-Free Chicken Pot Pie
Blake’s is a family grown brand that prides itself in using the best natural and organic ingredients. They still make all their meals by hand. This is a brand I hadn’t personally come across before. I stumbled upon it while shopping at Wal-Mart.
Now I normally shop at farmer’s markets like Sprouts, but my local Wal-Mart actually carries a large variety of Amy’s gluten-free meals. So I usually head there once a month and buy a bunch of them. While dumping them into my cart I noticed Blake’s gluten-free chicken pot pie.
As with all new gluten-free food, I bought only one. Because you never know how good or bad it is going to taste. Once I got home I heated it up in the microwave for 5 minutes. It also has preparation directions for doing it in the oven, which might even improve the taste. Once I dove into the chicken pot pie I was pleasantly surprised with the taste! The dough itself is a little chewy, but it tastes amazing. And the chicken sauce is to die for. The pieces of chicken themselves are very large.
Since then I have probably bought 30+ of these and I always find myself licking the bowl when I am done. It tastes that good. The crust itself I bet would be even a little better I did the oven prep, but I am pretty impatient.

Sorry but soy bean oil, organic or not, is not a good thing to have in ANY food, recipe, etc. Again, sorry but I personally will not buy any of these products as long as there is soy being used. Really no need for it in ANY foods.
I also try to stay away from soy myself and agree that it shouldn’t be used. The healthiest way to make pot pie of course is at home. But this is the best thing I have found so far for those that hate cooking. I really do hope more companies start stripping soy out of their products.
I bought a Blake’s chicken pie yesterday, I had a craving. Thanks for your review and thank you Mr. Lips for your comment on soybean oil as an ingredient. I knew it wasn’t great but I was inspired to find this article:
Pretty damning. I will go ahead and eat the chicken pie, enjoy it to the fullest, but probably won’t purchase again. I also might bring up this issue with the Blake’s company.
So I cooked/ate the pie for brunch today. Tasty, although I was missing peas, so I steamed frozen peas and added them.
Not so delish that I would buy again or overlook the soy oil issue. But nice enough for a one-off.
Blake’s Gluten Free Pot Pie is the worst gluten free anything I have ever tasted. I cooked it in a conventional oven exactly according to the directions on the box. The crust has the consistency of cardboard with no flavor. The filling is sweet because of the Turmeric. You get enough sweetness from the peas without adding turmeric. The whole thing would be greatly improved if they used a gluten free puff pastry or at least a gluten free type biscuit mix and the filling would be greatly improved if they would put in some onions and garlic instead of turmeric and even a touch of Rosemary could be a good thing. If it doesn’t change I will never buy another one. Overall, it was a huge disappointment.
Sorry to hear that Rosie. I love Blake’s gluten-free pot pies and eat them all the time. However, being gluten-free for so long, my taste buds have probably changed. I 100% agree though that the crust could greatly be improved. There are a lot of awesome gluten-free flours on the market now.
Oh yeah and I forgot to say that the one I bought looked nothing like the picture at the top of this page. And it had no bottom crust.
Yes, I can confirm they do fall apart quite easily. However, they are very tasty!
