Quick And Easy Meal Pot Pies + Apple Feta Walnut Salad Recipe

One thing I always keep in my arsenal of meal ideas is something that’s quick and easy for the weekdays. Whether it’s a 10 or a 30 minute meal, as long as the family approves I’m happy!

The whole family definitely approves of Marie Callender’s pot pies. Not only do they taste like homemade but they’re so quick to make. I can use the microwave or the oven depending on how much time I actually have or need.

And when paired with a deliciously fresh salad, this meal is the perfect way to end a winter day. Plus I end up having more time to connect with my family around the dinner table since it’s so easy to throw together.

Quick And Easy Meal Apple Feta Walnut Salad Recipe ingredients

A simple salad like this Apple Feta Walnut Salad recipe is the perfect pairing with Marie Callender’s Pot Pies. It’s super easy to throw together and takes about as long to make as the pot pies take to cook in the microwave.

The fruit and nut combination of the salad is the perfect balance to the pot pie’s homemade gravy mixed with vegetables and all white-meat chicken, in a golden, perfectly flaky crust that’s made from scratch. Mmmm!

We’ve been purchasing these pot pies since before my husband and I were married. They’re the ultimate comfort food for my family and something we love to enjoy together.

Plus, meals like these leave me plenty of time to talk and share with my family around the dinner table instead of being stuck in the kitchen for most of the night. Talk about a win-win! Delicious food and fabulous company.
