Asian Grilled Chicken Sandwich
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.

1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
8 cup low sodium chicken broth
2 lemons, juiced
1 (2-inch) piece parmesan cheese rind, optional
1/2 lb kale, stems removed, leaves torn into bite-sized pieces
1 pkg (9-ounce) cheese tortellini
italian bread for serving
lemon wedges for serving
Season chicken thighs with salt and black pepper. Heat the olive oil in a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the chicken and sauté for 10 minutes until brown.
Add the chicken broth, the lemon juice and Parmesan rind, if using. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes until chicken is cooked through. Chicken is done when a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 170 degrees. Remove the chicken to a cutting board. Turn the heat to high and add the kale and the tortellini. Boil gently for 7 to 10 minutes, until the kale wilts and tortellini is tender.
Shred the chicken into bite-sized pieces. When the tortellini is cooked, turn off the heat and stir the shredded chicken back into the broth.
Ladle Lemon Chicken Broth Bowl with Kale and Cheese Tortellini into a deep soup bowl. Serve with Italian bread, grated Parmesan cheese and extra lemon wedges on the side.
TIP: Save the rinds from your Parmesan cheese wedges. When you’re simmering a soup or sauce, toss in the Parmesan rind. The flavor of the parmesan will infuse throughout the broth.
