With the Kirkland Signature chicken pot pie debate back in the conversation, some shoppers pointed out another option. With people questioning the salt level and even the value of the pie, a few Reddit users pointed out that a homemade chicken pot pie might be tastier without too much hassle.
For example, the warehouse’s premade pot pie uses Costco’s rotisserie chicken pieces, which are also available for purchase in the deli. Consumers can buy that sealed package, a container of pre-made dough, vegetables, and gravy to make a homemade version. Although the prices can vary, the homemade option can address the saltiness as well as the gravy imbalance, the chicken pieces’ sizes, and even the overall serving size, which were all negative feedback from consumers.
Generally, the pre-made Costco offering retails for $3.99 a pound, with a 5-pound one coming in at a little under $20. And both the pre-made pot pie and a homemade version require a similar amount of baking time. Shoppers will have to weigh the take-and-bake convenience against their personal seasoning preferences.
