BBQ Ground Chicken Tacos
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 package PERDUE® Fresh Ground Chicken (1 lb.)
1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley leaves
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 1/2 cups hot pepper or peach pepper jam
1 jalapeño, seeded and finely chopped
1 lime, juiced
2 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro for garnish
Preheat oven to 375°F. Cover a baking sheet with foil and lightly coat it with cooking spray. In a bowl, gently combine the ground chicken, breadcrumbs, Parmesan, egg, parsley, garlic, salt and pepper. Scoop a rounded teaspoon of chicken mixture and roll into a ball. (You should be able to make about 48 meatballs.) Place each meatball onto the baking sheet. Lightly spray the meatballs with cooking spray.
TIP: To make rolling your meatballs easier, dip your teaspoon in water before scooping the meat mixture, and the meat will slide right off the teaspoon.
Bake for 20 minutes, until cooked through and lightly browned. Set aside.
TIP: To make ahead, prepare meatballs, bake, then freeze in a resealable plastic freezer bags for up to 1 month. To reheat from frozen, make your desired sauce. Warm the meatballs in one of the sauces over low heat.
In a medium saucepan, combine the pepper jam, jalapeño and lime juice. Stir until melted. Add the cooked meatballs and simmer until meatballs are coated and heated through. Transfer meatballs to a warm dish, garnish with chopped fresh cilantro and serve with toothpicks.
TIP: Try Asian Honey BBQ sauce with meatballs. In a medium saucepan, heat the 1 cup hoisin sauce, 1/2 cup honey and 4 tbsp. soy sauce. Add the cooked meatballs and simmer until meatballs are coated and heated through. Transfer meatballs to a warm dish, garnish with 2 tbsp.sesame seeds and serve with toothpicks. Or try our Yogurt Dill sauce. In a large saucepan, melt the 4 tbsp.butter over low heat, whisk in the 1/4 cup flour and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in 1 cup chicken stock and bring to a boil. Whisk until thick and bubbly. Add the cooked meatballs and simmer until meatballs are coated and heated through. Remove from heat and stir 1/2 cup Greek yogurt. Transfer the meatballs to a warm dish, garnish with 2 tbsp. chopped fresh dill and serve with toothpicks.
