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


2 tbsp.butter

1 tbsp.olive oil

1 1/4 tsp.salt

1/4 pepper

1 cupdiced celery

1 cupdiced onion

1 cupdiced carrots

2 tbsp.fresh dill, chopped

1/2 cupchopped fresh herbs such as thyme, dill, parsley, chives

4 tbsp.vegetable shortening

3/4 cupbuttermilk

2 tbsp.fresh parsley

Step 1

Step 1


In a stockpot or Dutch oven, heat the butter and olive oil over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper. Brown the chicken, skin side down for 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a clean plate. To the same Dutch oven, add the diced celery, onions, and carrots. Sauté for 3 to 4 minutes. Pour in the chicken stock. Add back the browned chicken and add the dill. Cover the stockpot and simmer for 20 minutes. When the stock is done and the chicken is cooked, remove the chicken from the pot and set aside on a plate to cool. Chicken is done when it feels firm to the touch and a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 170°F. Use 2 forks to shred the chicken and set aside. Discard the skin and bones.

While the stock is simmering, make the dumplings. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, the 1/2 cup of chopped mixed fresh herbs, 1 teaspoon salt and the baking powder. Add the shortening and with a fork, two knives or your fingers, blend the shortening into the flour to look like coarse corn meal. Add the buttermilk and stir until dough comes together. On a floured surface, roll out the dough to about 1/8 inch thick, then cut into 2-inch squares or cut circles with a small drinking glass. Cover the dumplings with a kitchen towel until ready to use.

Drop the dumplings into the simmering stock and simmer for 5 to 7 minutes or until the dumplings are cooked through. Once they are, add the shredded chicken back to the stock and simmer another 1 to 2 minutes until the chicken is heated through.
