Grilled Espresso Adobo Chicken with Mango Melon Salad
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 cupMojo Criollo
1 large orange, zested and juiced (about 1/2 cup juice)
1/2 lb.fresh green beans, cut into 1” pieces
1 cupOrganic Quinoa
1/4 cupExtra Virgin Olive Oil
3 tbsp.white wine vinegar
1 1/2 tsp.Sazonador Total
1/4 cupmint leaves, finely chopped
1 (15.5 oz.)can Low Sodium Red Kidney Beans, rinsed and drained
1 pintyellow or red cherry or grape tomatoes, halved (2 cups)
1/2 cuproasted almonds, chopped and divided
In a gallon sized resealable plastic bag, combine the chicken drumsticks and mojo criollo. Reserve 1 teaspoon of orange zest and then add the rest to the marinade. Toss to coat chicken well. Refrigerate for 2 to 24 hours.
In a medium saucepan, bring 6 cups of salted water to a boil. Add the green beans and boil until tender-crisp, about 4 minutes. Strain in a colander and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking. Drain well and refrigerate until ready to use. In a medium saucepan, bring 4 cups water to boil. Add the quinoa and simmer, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 10 minutes. Strain and cool completely.
Preheat and lightly oil a grill or grill pan over medium heat. Remove the drumsticks from the marinade and drain the excess. Discard the marinade. Place the chicken on the grill and close the cover. Grill, turning frequently, for about 20 minutes, until the drumsticks are golden brown on all sides and the chicken is cooked through. Chicken is done when a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 180°F. Transfer to a plate and let rest for 5 minutes.
In a large bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, sazonador seasoning, sugar and orange juice until sugar is dissolved. Stir the in the reserved orange zest and mint. Add the kidney beans, tomatoes, ¼ cup of the almonds, green beans and quinoa. Toss to combine. Spoon Quinoa Salad onto a platter and top with remaining ¼ cup roasted almonds. Place the Citrus Grilled Chicken Drumsticks on a serving platter and serve with Almondine Bean and Quinoa Salad.
