Marie Callendar has it's Chicken pot pie filling in a can, so you can eat it as a soup or make your own crust to fill.

I expect this will be similar, just the guts of the pie, since it's a crustless pot pie.

Well they had them at Kroger in Fairfield which you know isn't far from Cincinnati. If they do not have them at Walmart check Kroger

Crust less chicken pot pie = WIN! Oh my, tasted like major comfort food when I got home tonight and it was freezing outside. I'm heading out next week and stocking up for when I want something quick and good!

I am so happy about the existence of these! I work retail and there are some days I just need something fast, and I don't want to go pick up food.

And when I was a kid, I always ate the middle of pot pie and left the crust. I am trying to not build up the crust,ess pot pie, lest I be disappointed!

I am going to our super Wallymart tomorrow and will have a look see for these. They can't be any worse than the Lean Quisine crap I used to exist on (I'm NOT a cook). One of the main reasons I used to fail on low carb before was lack of "quicky" meals when I was just too darn tired to cook.

I bet I'll like them, I never met a frozen meal I didn't like (I'm not a picky eater in the least).

I've done that before! It really stretches the meal out. Since they are smallish lunch time portions, I'll bet they are only 200 or 300 calories. I've taken a SmartOne's Beef Roast and stirred in some shirataki and it seemed much more food than if I'd eaten it straight.

I'm excited about these too I wish they would come out with LC desserts that are frozen so you can have like one portion a week or so. Maybe cheesecake or pecan pie...

We eat whole clean foods virtually everyday of the week. Having said that....sometimes I would like a time and dish break. I care for a (demanding) toddler most days of the week, my DGD, and I seem to have little time but to do her bidding. Would like to grab a meal to have nuked, eat, toss the dish (rather than clean up a skillet and plate, prepping and unprepping, etc). I'm at home and my working hubby takes the leftovers. I need something quick sometimes. I went to Walmart and got a few of these....nothing over $3.48. I like the egg scramble bowls, which are cheaper...$2.98 I think. Time saving, cheap and tasty. And no clean up My other two meals today will be nutritious and low carb- avocado, blueberry vanilla shake, baked chicken, wedge salad. So not worried about that less than 2 % filler in my breakfast bowl.

That's where my thought process was at. Stretching out the meal, reducing calories and carbs. All the meals I seen were over 320 calories, which honestly is a lot to me for one meal lol. Sometimes I eat that much for dinner but never breakfast or lunch.

Plus I thought it would make a really delicious "pasta" or "rice" dish, mixing it together.

I did get lucky and my Walmart has them. Except someone bought ALL the turkey and another one I can't remember. I did get 2 pot pie, 1 meatloaf, 1 egg scramble with peppers and onions and 1 sausage premivera.

I tasted the pot pie last night and it was really really good. And honestly, a lot more food than I thought I was going to get. This one would be really good mixed with shiratake.

I brought the scramble to work with me today and will have it either for a late breakfast or lunch.

That's surprising. Houston is much bigger than us. Maybe whoever emailed you just didn't know what they were talking about.

WOE: Low Carb my way
Found this when I googled Atkin's frozen meals.


DENVER, Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Low-carb enthusiasts can toss their long shopping lists and put away their pots and pans. Atkins Nutritionals, Inc., a leader in the weight-management category, announced today the launch of Atkins™ Frozen Meals, the first and only line of indulgent low-carb entrees that will be available nationwide beginning January 2013. The nine new, convenient entrees were developed with a focus on exceptional taste and the use of satisfying Atkins-friendly, premium, whole food ingredients like freshly-picked vegetables, real, rich creams and sauces and premium custom meats without any fillers or preservatives.

"For our seven million loyal followers, who enjoy rich, flavorful foods made from scratch, the frozen aisle can feel like a frosty wasteland of unsatisfying, low-fat, low-calorie and high-carb options," said Scott Parker, chief marketing officer of Atkins Nutritionals, Inc. "The Atkins Frozen Meals line offers Atkins followers, who are accustomed to homemade food and fresh ingredients, a convenient and satisfying solution to help facilitate weight loss."

The menu features favorite dishes with a culinary low-carb twist like a pot pie sans the crust, turkey and green beans without the stuffing or mashed potatoes, and egg scrambles minus the hash browns.

The nine-item menu includes a variety of options to please every taste bud from traditional comfort classics like Meatloaf with Portobello Mushroom Gravy to more premium Italian entrees such as the Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo with a real cream and Parmesan cheese sauce.
Farmhouse-Style Sausage Scramble
Tex-Mex Scramble
Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo
Roast Turkey Tenders with Herb Pan Gravy
Beef Merlot
Crustless Chicken Pot Pie
Meatloaf with Portobello Mushroom Gravy
Italian Sausage Primavera
Chile con Carne

All of the savory, premium items are good for all four phases of the Atkins Diet™. The line contains no added sugars or preservatives, are a satiating 310-370 calories, and contain seven grams of Net Carbs or less.

"I've lost 23 pounds in six weeks on Atkins. I feel great and have very few cravings, but the first time I tasted the Roast Turkey Tenders with Herb Pan Gravy, I thought I was cheating!" said Sharon Osbourne, co-host of CBS's daytime talk show "The Talk" and new Atkins celebrity ambassador. "The generous portions and larger cuts of green beans taste freshly picked and the turkey tastes exactly like turkey should. This tastes like a homemade meal!"

Backed by over 80 independent published studies demonstrating safety and effectiveness, the Atkins Diet is a powerful four-phase weight loss program based on all food groups. Atkins Frozen Meal entrees are a deliciously different and convenient solution to help keep dieters on track to meet and maintain weight loss goals even when they do not have time to cook. The new Atkins Frozen Meals are closely aligned with the nutrition principles of the Atkins Diet.

Atkins Frozen Meals will be available nationwide in January 2013. The meals will have a MSRP of $4.49 (lunch/dinner varieties) and $3.99 (breakfast).

Ok, so right now I'm eating the Farmhouse-style sausage scramble. It's so good. It's a lot of food too. I've got about 1/4 left and I'm stuffed. IT taste like the inside of a breakfast burrito from McDonalds.

370 calories, 6g total carbs, 1g fiber, 5gnet carbs, 2 g sugar.

I really think halving the meals and mixing with shiratake will be what I will do. I just ate the full bowl and I will see how long it tides me over. Finished about 10:35am.

ETA: I will have to check Kroger's too! Didn't think about that!

These would have been very handy when I used to travel alot, since most of the places I stayed had at least a microwave.

I'm really hoping they are going to carry them other places than Wal-Mart, as I won't shop there.

I see folks have also located them at Kroger. Unfortunately, my only choices are Publix, Winn-Dixie or Target.

Don't know if it's been mentioned yet, but I found them over the weekend at the Walmart in Woodburn, Oregon! Haven't tried them yet, tho! Like most people here, not something I plan to use on a regular basis, but for 'emergencies'!

WOE: Atkins - it's a diet
Wow, Dr. Atkins must be turning over in his grave. From the original plan where he wanted you to cook to Atkins Nutritionals and the bars and then everything else. How is that suitable for induction? They;re basically trying to make it the new Jenny craig or nutrisystem- all processed and packaged foods from them so they can make a profit. They're ruining the Atkins name- it's not being promoted as a convenience food for an emergency but a replacement for actual cooking with fresh ingredients. They;re gonna have to publish a new version of the diet and induction can now be a breakfast bowl for breakfast, atkins bar and shake for lunch, and another bowl for dinner.

I agree, nolcjunk, but i bet some people will eat like that and lose a lot of weight, and if it can help them, that's a good thing. They can then come here and learn to cook all the great recipes.
