Balsamic Grilled Chicken Caprese Salad
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.

2 tbsp. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 can whole tomatoes (15-ounce)
1 tsp. sugar
2 tbsp. fresh basil, chopped
2 tsp. fresh oregano, chopped
2 egg whites
1 cup whole-grain salted crackers, pulsed in a food processor until fine
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
1 tbsp. fresh parsley, finely chopped
8 oz. fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced
Cooked pasta for serving
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for 20 to 30 seconds. Add the tomatoes and sugar. Cook, smashing the tomatoes, until flavors develop and the sauce is thick and chunky, about 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in the basil and oregano and remove from heat.
TIP: For a quick marinara sauce that tastes like homemade, just stir oregano and basil into 1 1/4 cups store-bought tomato sauce.
Preheat your oven to 425°F. Spray a 9” x 13” baking dish with cooking spray. In a shallow dish, whisk the egg whites with 2 tablespoons of water until frothy. In another shallow dish, combine the cracker crumbs, Parmesan cheese and chopped parsley. Dip each chicken breast in egg whites to coat; let excess drip away. Dredge the chicken in crumb mixture, pressing, to coat both sides. Place the chicken in the baking dish and mist with cooking spray. Bake until crisp and chicken is cooked, about 20 to 25 minutes. The chicken is done when it feels firm to the touch and a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 170°F.
Remove the baking dish from the oven. Turn the oven temperature to broil. Spoon the tomato sauce over the chicken and top with mozzarella slices. Return the chicken to the oven and broil until the cheese has melted and the top is lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes.
To serve, toss the pasta with the remaining tomato sauce. Place the chicken alongside the pasta. Serve with garlic bread and a side salad.
TIP: This recipe works great for a crowd.
