5 Spice Sesame Popcorn Chicken with the Apricot Dipping Sauce
At Perdue Farms, your health and well-being are our top concerns. In the past few days, we’ve experienced heavier than normal call volume as customers reach out with concerns about sourcing of our products and quality control measures we’ve put in place to guarantee the freshness and safety of the foods we ship. We want you to know that we hear you, we thank you for reaching out and we want to reassure you in every way possible that we’re putting your health, safety and well-being first.
In light of concerns over Coronavirus (COVID-19), we’d like to share the following:
COVID-19 is Not Considered a Food-Borne Pathogen
Per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), COVID-19 is most commonly spread between those who are in close contact with each other, and through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. It may also be possible for a person to contract COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching his or her own mouth, nose or possibly eyes, but this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads. We have strict biosecurity protocols throughout our farms and entire supply chain, including proven sanitation methods which minimize the risk of contaminated surfaces.
Perdue Farms Takes Food Safety Protocols Seriously
We have the highest standards of biosecurity and food safety, and fully sanitize our facilities every 24 hours. We are closely monitoring affected areas and reiterating our biosecurity policy to help minimize the potential to transport possibly contaminated surfaces. The staff at the onsite Wellness Centers at 19 of our facilities are trained on how to protect our associates from, and identify and respond to, symptoms of COVID-19. These professionals follow standard operating procedures as defined by the CDC for infectious diseases. The Wellness Centers are available to all associates and their families. We are taking every precaution to protect our associates, communities, customers and business partners, and ensure the continuity of our business.
All of our animals are born/hatched, raised, harvested and processed in the U.S. As with most large businesses, we source some (non-food) elements of our supply chain from countries outside the U.S. We are closely monitoring affected areas and reiterating our biosecurity policy to help minimize the potential to transport possibly contaminated surfaces.
Thank you for being a loyal Perdue Farms customer. Please reach out to our Consumer Relations team, should you have any additional questions or concerns.

1 tbsp.olive oil
1 cuponions, diced
1 cupmushrooms, diced
1 (8 ounce) can water chestnuts, drained and diced
2 tbsp.low-sodium soy sauce
2 tbsp.hoisin sauce
1 tbsp.white vinegar
1 tbsp.sesame oil
2 tbsp.brown sugar
1 lead bibb lettuce or your favorite lettuce variety
1/4 cupchopped scallions
1/4 cuppeanuts, chopped
In a skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onions, mushrooms and water chestnuts. Sauté until the onions are translucent and the mushrooms are cooked, about 5 minutes. Add the frozen popcorn chicken. Toss well.
In a measuring cup, combine the soy sauce, hoisin sauce, vinegar, sesame oil, brown sugar and water and stir well, until the sugar is dissolved. Add the liquid to the skillet and toss with the chicken and other ingredients. Turn on low and allow to simmer for 10 minutes to thoroughly heat the chicken. Toss periodically to prevent the sauce from sticking and to coat the chicken with the sauce.
Remove the core of the lettuce and pull off the leaves to create serving “cups.” Spoon some of the Asian chicken mixture into a cup and top with chopped scallions and chopped peanuts.
Fold up the lettuce cups and enjoy. Serve with extra hoisin sauce on the side if desired.
TIP: This makes a great dish for a party. Just set the chicken mixture in a bowl with the lettuce cups, chopped scallions and chopped peanuts on the side and allow guests to make their own.
