Hi, Mom! Why are chicken pies almost always called chicken pot pies? The only time they should be called "pot" pies is when they're actually cooked in pots, which is something almost nobody does. Even my grandmother didn't cook chicken pie in a pot. She bought 'em frozen in little aluminum pans and baked them in the oven. (Grandma was old-fashioned, but she weren't no damned fool.)   Shouldn't they be called chicken pan pies? Heck, nowadays they don't even come in aluminum pans. They come in pan-shaped microwavable containers. Wouldn't chicken microwavable container pies be even more appropriate?
