BBQ Chicken Empanadas
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.

1/4 cupSriracha mayonnaise
1 tbsplow sodium soy sauce, plus extra for serving
2 tbspsesame seeds

Chop Short Cuts into bite sized pieces. Spread them evenly in a non-stick skillet. Heat over medium-high heat for 4 to 5 minutes, turning frequently until warm.
In a measuring cup, stir the vinegar and the sugar together until sugar dissolves. Drizzle over the rice, mix well and set aside.
In small bowl, combine the diced avocado with the lemon juice and set aside. In another small bowl, combine the Sriracha mayonnaise with the soy sauce and set aside.
Place a 4-inch cookie cutter or empty can on a serving plate. Spoon in 1/2 cup of rice. Using wet fingers, press down lightly to make sure the rice holds together. Layer in 1/4 cup of diced avocado and then 1/3 cup of chopped chicken. Carefully lift up the cookie cutter to reveal your California Roll Chicken Stack. Drizzle with Sriracha mayonnaise and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve with extra soy sauce if desired.
TIP: To create a California Roll Chicken Rice Bowl, spoon in ½ cup of the rice into a bowl. Spoon diced avocado onto one side of the bowl and chopped chicken onto the other. Drizzle with Sriracha mayo and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
