Costco Just Brought Back a Highly Anticipated Fall Find, and It's Flying Off Shelves

For the last few weeks, Costco has been seemingly gearing up for the fall season in  an attempt to get ahead of the upcoming demand for the best autumnal flavors. The season has already been marked by the return of Costco classics like Pumpkin Streusel Muffins and the fan-favorite Pumpkin Pies. And although some of us may still be clinging on to the last bit of summer available, the holiday season is quickly approaching and it’s nice to know that the warehouse has their priorities in line with our collective fall cravings.

Thanks to a post shared to Instagram by Laura over at Costco Hot Finds, the latest hot find to capture our attention comes in the form of one of the best pre-made comfort foods that money can buy: the Kirkland Chicken Pot Pie. Featuring a whopping 1.5 pounds of chicken inside, along with peas and baby carrots, this 5.5 pound pot pie comes ready to cook and retails for $3.99 per pound. For just under $22, Costco’s Chicken Pot Pie is the perfect purchase for a no-fuss family dinner, and thanks to Laura’s own personal experience, we also have some useful tips for baking this behemoth of a meal.

In her video, Laura describes how she likes to add an egg wash of egg yolk and water to the crust before baking in order to achieve a perfectly golden brown crust. She then suggests using a pizza stone while baking the pie in the oven, due to the pie being too large for a baking sheet. Depending on the size of your equipment, this may be a useful tip.

The next tip you may want to keep handy? According to Laura, after about 50 minutes in the oven, she also added foil on top because “the crust was perfectly baked at that point.” And finally, Laura notes that she kept the pie in the oven for the full 90 minute bake time, with the oven set to 375°F.

If this pie is screaming out your name, make sure to reach out to your local Costco to make sure it's in stock near you before heading in. Some stores tend to get these seasonal returns before others — not to mention that once the masses find out online, the shelf life depletes almost instantaneously. Act fast and stock up!
