Tips

  • How long does frozen chicken pot pie last? The precise answer to that question depends to a large extent on storage conditions - keep chicken pot pie frozen at all times.
  • Properly stored, frozen chicken pot pie will maintain best quality for about 6-9 months in the freezer, although it will usually remain safe to eat after that.
  • Is frozen chicken pot pie safe to eat after the expiration date on the package? Yes, if properly stored - commercially frozen chicken pot pie will typically carry a Best By," "Best if Used By," Best Before, or "Best When Used By" date but this is not a safety date, it is the manufacturer's estimate of how long the chicken pot pie will remain at peak quality.
  • How long will frozen chicken pot pie remain safe to eat? Frozen chicken pot pie that has been kept constantly frozen at 0°F will keep safe indefinitely, as long as it has been stored properly and the package is not damaged.
  • How long can you safely leave frozen chicken pot pie at room temperature? Frozen chicken pot pie should be discarded if left for more than 2 hours at room temperature, as bacteria grow rapidly at temperatures between 40 °F and 140 °F.
  • How to tell if frozen chicken pot pie is no longer good? If dry spots or discoloration have developed on the frozen chicken pot pie, freezer burn has begun to set in - this will not make the chicken pot pie unsafe to eat, but it will harm the texture and taste.
