Welcome to
       Church Pies
                                                    of Cape Cod

It’s a Premium Chicken Pie!

Chunks of delicious white meat chicken and a rich homestyle gravy made from real chicken broth and covered with a flakey, pure-vegetable shortening crust…no bottom crust to go soggy!

Optionally we have a Chicken POT Pie available                                                                 containing peas and carrots

                     Hint:  We suggest the chicken-only option as                                               there is more chicken in larger  chunks                                                   …and then you can choose your own                                                     vegetables

It’s A Frozen Product

  To preserve its flavor, all pies are frozen and sit in your freezer until you’re freezer until you’re ready                    …for your convenience!!

        Out of the freezer and into the oven  (Do NOT thaw!)

Start cooking about an hour before you want to eat         (The chicken is already cooked. The baking is to thaw and warm the chicken and gravy, and cook the top crust.)

It’s the ULTIMATE Comfort Food!

Cooking Instructions

          Remove the wrapping and place the pie on a cookie             sheet in a pre-heated 400 degree oven.

                                        Suggest lining the cookie sheet with a layer                                           of aluminum foil to make the clean up easier.                                         The gravy will likely bubble over the edge of                                           the pie pan.

            Bake uncovered. Wait for the top crust to turn a light             golden brown.

                                         Hint:  The small 14 oz pie cooks nicely in a                                                       toaster oven saving electricity and                                                           reducing kitchen heat.

Cooking times are estimates and may vary with your oven.

           Some serve the pie over rice, mashed potatoes or,                    especially, egg noodles!

           Others enjoy serving with just the crust and add a                  vegetable side.

 Most people enjoy adding cranberry sauce.

Why can’t I order one here?

 We regret that we cannot ship these frozen pies.  The cost of the dry ice, the special container, and the postage would make the price terribly unattractive.

How does a church do this?

Our church has a very unusual way of raising funds so we can reach out into our neighborhoods and provide some help.

Over five years ago, in March of 2011, a member of our congregation knew a man that ran a small company in central Massachusetts that made premium frozen chicken pies.  Since they were not doing business on Cape Cod, they provided us with pies with the “Church Pies of Cape Cod” label.  The quality of the pie caused sales to immediately take off and the rest is history.

Our 5th Year Celebratory Cake!

Today we have five freezers in the basement of the church where we do the distribution to our stores.  All our representatives are unpaid volunteers on what we call “The Pie Team”.  Every penny of our profit flows directly to the Mashpee Congregational Church for its outreach into the greater Mashpee/Cape Cod Community.

In five years we have sold approximately 40,000 pies.

What else can we say?

  • Lower Sodium                                                                                                       A serving of our pie contains 530 mg of sodium. Most other frozen chicken pies have about 50% more salt! Our manufacturer makes our pies from tasty, nutritious food and does need to enhance the pies by adding salt.
  • No fancy boxes                                                                            We put the value into the quality of the product, not in it’s fancy package.
  • Are we better than the competition?                                                           We think so, but you taste and you decide!
  • Allergens:                                                                                    Our pies contain Wheat and Soy Products, but                                            No Eggs                                                                                                       No MSG
  • Our pies are very healthy, but not Organic
  • And last, we regret that we have no chicken pies for our friends who are vegetarians!
