Today my 3 year old son and I were watching the Daytona 500. My son quite suddenly out of nowhere seems to have fallen in love with watching Stock Car racing. So now I watch with him. They played a new KFC commercial during a break and it was for their new Chunky Chicken Pot Pie. Their new retro commercial was funny and even had a muscle car in it. The song playing in the background is  “Time To Get Down” by The O’Jays, and they featured a very nice 1970 Dodge Charger R/T, but more importantly, that Chunky Chicken Pot Pie looked really good. You can watch this great commercial below.

“Almost instantly my car was filled with the aroma of Chunky Chicken Pot Pie.”

Maybe it was that I had skipped lunch in order to catch up on work, or that I had a soft spot in my heart for funny commercials, 70′s music and old musclecars. Whatever the reason, all that mattered was I had to give it a try. So I hopped in my 2010 Dodge and off I went. I opted to do the drive thru at the local KFC/Long John Silvers and order the Chunky Chicken Pot Pie for $3.99, just like the commercial. Almost instantly my car was filled with the aroma of Chunky Chicken Pot Pie. I was dying to try this out, the smell of hot Chunky Chicken Pot Pie on a 40 degree day when it is hailing in Southern California is enough to make you want to go home, sit back, eat some chicken and watch a race on TV with your son, and that is exactly what I did.

“I could eat a whole plate of just Chunky Chicken Pie crusts, in fact, why don’t they just sell the crusts! “

Finally home and I opened the box and the pie looked huge from the top. The crust is gigantic and hangs over the edge of the pie tin like a giant muffin top. It looked great and was quite heavy, but that crust is what I wanted to taste. So I broke off a little of it and ate it outright like a chip. This was very good. I could eat a whole plate of just Chunky Chicken Pie crusts, in fact, why don’t they just sell the crusts! Yes, I am a fan of Seinfeld. I dove into the the pie part and began to devour that as well. It had a nice mix of vegetables, including carrots, peas and potatoes. There were chunks of chicken that were both white and dark meat.

“How Big is the chunky chicken pot pie? It’s big, the crust is huge”

The taste was quite peppery, which I like a lot. It was also a little salty, as you would expect from this sort of dish. I ate every bit of it and would have liked some more. At $3.99 it is not a bad deal, but it is not enough for me by itself. Will I get one again? Absolutely. Would I recommend it to friends? Yes I would. It reminds me of eating chicken pot pies that my mom made.

    I don’t know where you all live to get this GREAT chicken pot pie, but the last 3 times we have purchased it, there was barely any chicken at all. When the label says “chicken” pot pie, then there actually needs to be chicken mixed in with the filling. I will have to agree, the crust is wonderful and there are nice chunks of potatoes and carrots. Could they just work on the chicken part? This ole Texas girl would be VERY happy.
