Baked Chicken Parmesan
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.

large red bell pepper, sliced
medium red onion, sliced
3 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 (7-ounce) tub prepared pesto
8 slices Italian bread or 4 sandwich rolls
8 slices provolone cheese
In a bowl, toss the thin sliced chicken breasts with 4 tablespoons of pesto and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. In another bowl, toss the peppers and onions with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil, salt and pepper.
Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Grill the chicken and vegetables until the vegetables are tender and slightly charred and the chicken is cooked through, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. The chicken is done when a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 170°F. Remove the chicken and vegetables from the grill.
Lay the 8 slices of bread on a sheet tray or cutting board. Spread the remaining pesto on the bread. On 4 of the bread slices, layer a slice of Provolone cheese, a chicken slice, onions, peppers and another slice of Provolone cheese. Top with the remaining 4 slices of bread, pesto side down.
Turn the grill or grill pan down to medium-low heat. Place the paninis on the grill. Place a heavy cast-iron skillet or panini press on top of the sandwiches. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes, until the bread is crisp. Remove the skillet, turn the paninis over and continue pressing with the skillet for another 2 to 3 minutes, until the bread is crisp and the cheese is melted. Remove each Grilled Vegetable and Pesto Chicken Panini from the grill and cut it in half. Serve with potato chips and a glass of lemonade or pinot grigio.
TIP: This is a great way to use any vegetables that you have on hand! Try with zucchini, yellow squash or even broccoli rabe.
