When you’re craving comfort food, you can find it in Aldi’s Regular Buy Bremer Chicken Pot Pie. Found in the frozen section, these individual savory pies make a good dinner for one, or they’re good to pack as a work or school lunch.

Bremer Chicken Pot Pie

These 7-oz. Chicken Pot Pies usually sell for somewhere in the 70-cent range, but I got mine on sale for 69 cents.

The package describes the pie as “a flaky pastry crust filled with chicken, carrots, potatoes and peas in a savory gravy.” It also features a “flaky crust made from scratch.”

These Chicken Pot Pies should remain frozen until you are ready to cook them. You can prepare them in the microwave (the faster way) or the conventional oven (the longer way), although the recommended method is the conventional oven.

To bake in the oven, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the pot pie on a cookie sheet and slit the top crust with a knife. Bake for 32 to 34 minutes and carefully remove from the oven. Let stand for 5 minutes to complete cooking. Check that the pot pie is cooked thoroughly; crust should be golden brown and steam should be rising from the filling. Internal temperature should reach 165 degrees as measured by a food thermometer in several spots.

To microwave, remove the pot pie from the box and place on a microwave-safe plate. Slit the top crust with a knife. Microwave on high power for 4 to 5 minutes. Do not cook in microwaves below 1100 watts and the pot pie might not cook throughout. Let stand 3 minutes in the microwave to complete cooking. Carefully remove the pot pie from the microwave (the plate and pie will be very hot). Check that the pie is cooked thoroughly; steam should be rising from the filling. Internal temperature should reach 165 degrees as measured by a food thermometer in several spots.

Don’t forget to recycle the box the Chicken Pot Pie comes in.

My husband and I baked two of Aldi’s Chicken Pot Pies in the oven for lunch, and they truly hit the spot. They baked up well in the recommended time frame, with golden and slightly crisp crusts. Both pies had a generous amount of chicken, veggies, and gravy. My husband does not care for peas or cooked carrots, and even he enjoyed the Chicken Pot Pies and would likely eat them again.

The Verdict:

Aldi’s Regular Buy Bremer Chicken Pot Pie is sold in individual servings and makes for good comfort food. The pies have just the right proportions of flaky crust, rich gravy, veggies, and chicken chunks, and the flavor is spot on. They’re not a health food, but we still recommend them as an occasional lunch or dinner treat. They can be prepared in the oven or microwave, which makes them good for taking to school or work for lunch as well.

  1. Completely disagree. Compared to the Swanson pot pies, or the Banquet brand sold at many other grocery stores, these pot pies were smaller, the crust wasn’t as nice and the pie contained more liquid.

    To be honest, it’s one of the first items from Aldi that I haven’t liked.

    • Karen, I have to agree with you. I bought two pies for our dinner, and they were very disappointing. The copious gravy was way too salty, and we each had two small pieces of chicken, two peas and two small pieces of potato and carrot. It was hardly a satisfying main dish. I have never been disappointed in an Aldi product until now, and I do most of my shopping at our local Aldi Supermarket.

    • I agree 100%. terrible pies, worse than Banquet. never will I buy any more, but love to shop at Aldies.

    • There is hardly anything in the Bremer potpies. They are a tasteless ripoff of American comfort food. Aldi’s should drop this line along with its overly sugared desserts.

  2. I tried a turkey pot pie today because my husband said he didn’t find any turkey in his. I turned out mine on a plate for a good look thru…crust, great. Gravy with vegetables very good. Two tiny cubes of turkey, maybe 1/3 of an inch square. I was so disappointed. Not at all the quality I expected from Aldi

  3. Very disapointed these are smallest pies i ever had ! I dont remember the brand name of others ive had but i do remember they were twice the size ! Eating these felt like 4 bite appetizer before big meal ? Was happy to see they were very cheap $

  4. I loved the one I bought so much so I looked for stores to buy more. I forgot where I purchased this from, Aldi’s it turns out. I just microwaved the pie 4 minutes. The taste is excellent . You better believe if I see them again I would grab it.

  5. These pies are superior to Marie Callendars in my opinion. They actually have vegetables, meat, sauce, and a very decent crust. I’m in for the money!

  6. I like these pies for the price. They may be smaller, but for the price they are good. The only thing is, for the first time I have found a small bone in a piece chicken.

    Bremer has changed their chicken pot pies. I will never buy another. The filling and gravy was nearly non existent. I saw two small pieces of chicken and not even a half dozen pieces of veggie. There was a smear of gravy on the inside crust. If you want to eat a filling less and gravy less pie, this is it. Super disappointed.

  8. Mostly gravy inside the crust. There are better things on the shelf

  9. This was the gamiest chicken I’ve ever eaten. It was hard as rubber and it tasted like it had sat in a freezer for 100 years. So funky and… not good at all. It sounds like most things over the last couple of years, gone downhill yet gotten more expensive. Yikes.

  10. This was the saddest, smallest, least filled with anything pot pie I’ve ever had. There was barely anything in it! Slight amount of gravy over basically air. What a waste.
