Nothing says comfort food like a pot pie. It's warm and cozy and it's a full meal in one dish. Trouble is, pot pies can be high in fat, calories and sodium, so the pastry-topped dinners have become more of an occasional treat to our panelists. If they are going to indulge in a pot pie, our judges want it to be a good meal. We sampled nine brands of frozen or refrigerated chicken pies and baked each of them in the oven. Several were good and one was nearly perfect.
