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.

Ingredients Ingredients


3 tbsp. olive oil

2 cups chopped onion, 1 large onion

2 cups chopped celery, about 8 stalks

4 cloves garlic, chopped

1 tbsp. poultry seasoning, or to taste

2 tsp. salt

2 tsp. oregano

1 tsp. cumin

1 bay leaf

4 cups chicken stock

2 cans cannellini or other white beans, rinsed and drained (15-ounce)

1/2 cup masa harina or finely ground corn meal (or 4 tablespoons Corn Starch)

1 lime, juiced

1 mild green chilies (4-ounce)

Shredded cheddar cheese for serving

Sour cream for serving

Lime wedges for serving

Tortilla strips for serving

Step 1

Step 1


On a plastic or dishwasher-safe cutting board, cut the chicken breast into cubes or use PERDUE® FRESH CUTS™. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the chicken cubes and cook until lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes Add the onions, celery and garlic. Sauté until the onions soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the poultry seasoning, salt, oregano, cumin, and the bay leaf. Stir to combine.

Add the chicken stock, bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Add the cannellini beans and cook, covered, for 30 minutes.

Step 3


After 30 minutes, whisk together the masa harina with 1 cup of water. Stir the masa into the chili, along with the lime juice and the green chilies. Stir and cook until thick, about 5 minutes.

tip TIP

TIP: Masa is Spanish for “dough” and is traditionally used to make corn tortillas. Masa is a thickening agent that also adds natural corn flavor. Masa harina is flour made from the dried tortilla dough. To get that distinctive flavor, try grinding stale or dry corn tortillas in a food processor until you get a fine powder. If the masa harina is used as a thickener (such as in chili), regular flour or cornmeal will give you the right texture, though the flavor won't be quite the same. If you can’t find masa harina, use 2 tablespoons of corn starch instead.
