Apple and Curry Chicken 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.

3 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 bunch fresh thyme
1 head garlic, cut in half crosswise
2 tbsp butter, softened
1 lemon, cut in half
4 medium red potatoes, quartered
3 medium carrots peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks
2 medium onions, quartered
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup dry white wine
Preheat oven to 425°F. Remove chicken giblets. Place whole roaster on plastic or dishwasher-safe cutting board. Season cavity with salt and black pepper. Stuff cavity with thyme and garlic. Rub chicken with softened butter. Squeeze juice of lemon over chicken, then place lemon halves inside cavity. Tuck wings under chicken to keep from burning.
Place chicken on rack in large roasting pan. Roast 15 minutes at 425°F, then reduce heat to 350°F. Baste chicken with pan juices, then add potatoes, carrots and onions to pan. Continue roasting chicken, basting every 20 minutes, until juices run clear, legs move easily when wiggled and meat thermometer inserted into thickest part of thigh registers 170°F. This will take about 2 1/2 to 3 hours for a 5- to 7-pound PERDUE® OVEN STUFFER® Whole Roaster.
Transfer chicken and vegetables to platter and let rest 10 minutes while you make gravy. Pour fat and juices from pan into small bowl or fat separator. Place pan directly on burner over medium-high heat. Whisk about 2 tablespoons of fat back into pan. Add flour and whisk about 2 minutes. Whisk in chicken stock, white wine and any juices from roast chicken. Bring to boil, scraping any browned bits from bottom of pan. Cook until gravy has thickened, about 3 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
Carve chicken onto platter with carrots, onions and potatoes. Garnish with roasted garlic, lemon and fresh thyme sprigs if desired. Pour gravy into gravy boat and serve alongside roast chicken.
