Chicken Celebration Sliders
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.

1/2 tsp. Garlic powder
1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
10 oz. fresh spinach
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella
12 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 lb. pizza dough
1 cup pizza sauce, for serving
Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray a foil lined baking sheet with cooking spray. Place frozen chicken nuggets in single layer on baking sheet and season with garlic powder and Italian seasonings. Bake on the middle oven rack for 11 to 13 minutes, or until heated through. Internal temperature should reach 150°F to 160°F. Turn the nuggets halfway through the heating time.
Blanch or microwave the spinach for about 2 minutes or until wilted. Let cool and then squeeze out as much moisture as possible. Roughly chop and transfer to a bowl. Combine the spinach with the ricotta, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.
Divide the pizza dough into 4 equal portions. Roll each dough piece into a 7 to 8-inch circle. Spoon a portion of the cheese filling onto the bottom half of each dough circle. Place several nuggets into the cheese filling. Fold the dough over the filling to create a half moon shape and seal the edges with a fork. Place each calzone onto a greased baking sheet. (You will need 2 baking sheets). Prick with a fork or tip of a knife to allow steam to escape.
Bake for about 13 to 15 minutes until golden brown and crispy. Serve with warm pizza sauce for dipping.
