My weekdays start around 6:30 am and I don’t stop until midnight most nights. Some days I go non-stop. I love creating home cooked meals for my family, but I’m always short on time. So cooking isn’t always feasible. I need quick and/or easy meals… I need effortless meals. And I do not want to compromise on taste. I’m tired of eating on the run, going through drive-thrus, and just eating out in general, too.
One of our issues in the late afternoons/early evenings is getting dinner on the table, everyone eating, and getting homework done before extracurricular activities. This is where semi-homemade meals come in handy. They satisfy my need for a home cooked meal and save me a lot of time.
A favorite comfort food of mine is chicken pot pie, but making them from scratch takes way too much time.
My best friend gave me this delicious easy chicken pot pie recipe that calls for rotisserie chicken. I buy effortless meals from Walmart from time to time and knew that the effortless meals would be perfect to create this yummy chicken pot pie.
You can get everything for a ready to eat meal, like the Marketside pizza meal or my favorite the Marketside rotisserie chicken meal. You get a rotisserie chicken, a side, and a 2-litre Coca Cola product. After picking up the Effortless Meal, I also picked up a can of Veg All, a can of cream of chicken and cream of potato soup, and a package of frozen pie shells for my chicken pot pie.
Just look for the Effortless Meals signs in your local Walmart and you’ll find everything you need for your next effortless meal. I pick up everything I need before swinging by my son’s school to pick him up and then when we get home I’m ready to get dinner started while my son does his homework.

See, I told you it’s super easy!
While the chicken pot pie is in the oven, I help my son with his homework if he needs it and by the time dinner is ready he is usually finished. Then we can sit down as a family, relax and enjoy an effortless meal together. We like cole slaw with our chicken pot pie and a delicious cold Coca-Cola product, of course. My husband may have asked for thirds (maybe). Even my picky eater loved it.
I’m just happy to have a satisfying meal that is not only delicious, but effortless. This was so good that I made it for my parents when I went in over Labor Day weekend. My Dad couldn’t stop eating it.
