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.

2 cupsshredded mozzarella cheese
10 ouncesgarlic and herb cheese
1 cupartichoke hearts, finely chopped
1/2 cupParmesan cheese
1 (16-ounce) canrefrigerated pizza dough
Preheat oven to 350°F. In a bowl, combine the shredded chicken, shredded mozzarella, garlic-herb cheese, chopped artichokes and Parmesan cheese. Mix well.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pizza dough into a 12”x 18” rectangle. With a pizza cutter or a sharp knife, cut the dough into 16 (3”x 4”) rectangles. Dollop a heaping tablespoon of chicken mixture onto each dough rectangle. Leave one rectangle without the spread and set aside. Press the mixture to evenly cover each rectangle.
Spray a 9”x 5” loaf pan with cooking spray and prop it up vertically. Use a spatula to layer the rectangles into stacks of 3 or 4. Place the stacked layers into the loaf pan, chicken side up. Top with the dough rectangle without spread that you had set aside. Sit the pan horizontally.
Bake the loaf for 1 hour, or until well browned and cooked through. Let cool for 5 minutes and then turn the loaf out of the pan. Serve while warm and let people peel off their slices.
TIP: The inside stays just a bit doughy due to the moisture in the chicken, so make sure to cook it until the top begins to brown.
