Costco’s chicken pot pies come frozen in a foil tin, taking the guesswork out of crust making and fillings. All you need to do is follow a few simple steps to transform the frozen pie into a bubbling, golden brown masterpiece. Here’s how to cook the perfect Costco chicken pot pie every time.

1. How To Cook Costco Chicken Pot Pie

What You’ll Need

  • 1 Costco chicken pot pie
  • Baking sheet
  • Aluminum foil (optional)


Preheat your oven to 400°F. For best results, you’ll want to cook the pie at a relatively high temperature to ensure the crust gets nice and crispy on the outside while the interior cooks through.

Remove the frozen pie from its packaging. There’s no need to thaw it first – it goes straight from the freezer to the oven.

Place the pie on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil or parchment paper. This will catch any drips or spills as the pie cooks. If you want to be extra careful, you can loosely tent the top of the pie with aluminum foil to prevent over-browning.

Once your oven is fully preheated, put the pie on the center rack and bake for 60-70 minutes. Begin checking it around the 60 minute mark by inserting a knife or skewer into the center – if it comes out hot with no resistance, it’s done.

Remove the golden brown pot pie from the oven and let it rest for 5-10 minutes before serving. This allows the filling to set up slightly for cleaner slices.

Use a sharp knife to cut into the pie, being careful of the hot filling. Transfer portions to plates and get ready to dig into the ultimate comfort food!

Tips For The Best Results

  • Don’t skip preheating the oven. Starting with a hot oven is key for a crispy, flaky crust.
  • Use a baking sheet or foil to catch any drips. The hot filling has a tendency to bubble over.
  • Let the pie rest before cutting into it for the cleanest slices.
  • Add a sprinkle of finishing salt over the top after baking for extra flavor.
  • Enjoy with a fresh salad or roasted veggies for a complete meal.

Whether you’re a Costco chicken pot pie veteran or trying it for the first time, following these simple steps will ensure perfectly cooked results every time. The convenience of a take-and-bake pot pie with the satisfaction of homemade can’t be beat on a chilly day. Dig into the ultimate comfort food tonight!
