Chicken Avocado Tortilla Toast
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 tbspolive oil
1/2 tspgarlic powder
1/4 tspblack pepper
9 jumbo pasta shells, cooked as per package directions
1 cuppart skim ricotta cheese
1/4 cupshredded parmesan
1 tbspshredded basil
1/4 tspdried oregano
1/8 tspblack pepper
3 tbspolive oil
3 tbspall-purpose flour
1 cuplow sodium chicken stock
1 cuplow-fat (2%) milk
1/2 cupgrated parmesan cheese
1 cupbroccoli florets
1/4 cupparmesan for topping
Preheat your oven to 350°F. In a skillet heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium high heat. Add the chicken and season with salt, garlic and pepper. Sauté the chicken strips until browned and cooked through, about 7 to 10 minutes. Chicken is done when a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 170°F. Transfer to a plate.
In a bowl, mix together the ricotta cheese, parmesan, shredded basil, salt, oregano and pepper. Set aside.
In another skillet heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Whisk the flour into the oil until smooth, about 1 minute. Slowly whisk in the chicken stock and the milk until smooth. Raise the heat to medium high and bring to a simmer. Season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Simmer until the sauce thickens, about 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the parmesan cheese. Simmer until the cheese melts, another 1 to 2 minutes If the sauce gets too thick, thin with a little more milk.
Stuff and Bake
Pour 1/2 cup of sauce into the bottom of a medium baking dish. Using a spoon, fill each of the shells with 2 to 3 tablespoons of the cheese mixture. Nestle a chicken strip into the shell on top of the cheese mixture. Lay the shell face up in the baking dish. Repeat with remaining chicken and shells. Pour the remaining alfredo sauce over the top of the shells. Scatter the broccoli florets in the baking dish around the shells. Sprinkle the remaining Parmesan cheese over the shells. Bake uncovered for about 10 minutes to heat through.
TIP: You can substitute the homemade Alfredo sauce for your favorite jar of pre-made Alfredo.
