Chipotle Lime Grilled Chicken with Strawberry Salsa
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.

1/4 cup olive oil
2 tsp. Ras el Hanout
1 can (15 oz.) chickpeas, drained
1 pint cherry tomatoes
1 cup couscous, regular or large (Israeli) sized
1 1/2 cups chicken stock
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 cup cilantro or mint leaves
Preheat oven to 400°F. In a medium bowl, combine the olive oil and Ras el Hanout. Brush the chicken breasts with about 1 tablespoon of the spice oil.
TIP: Ras el Hanout is a curry spice blend that consists of a wide variety of spices. It varies from blend to blend and can have as many as 100 different spices. It can be found in the spice aisle of most grocery stores and has a floral aroma.
Toss the chickpeas and tomatoes in the bowl with the remaining spice oil. Tip the bowl into a 9x13 baking dish. Place the chicken breasts on top of the chickpeas and tomatoes. Squeeze over the juice of ½ a lemon and season with salt and black pepper. Bake for 20 minutes or until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 170°F.
Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring chicken stock to a boil. Add the couscous, cover with a lid and remove from heat. Let the couscous sit for 10 minutes, squeeze in the juice of ½ lemon, then fluff with a fork. Season with salt and black pepper.
To serve, toss the chickpeas and tomatoes with the couscous. Portion onto a dinner plate. Top with a chicken breast. Sprinkle with cilantro or mint leaves and a squeeze of lemon.
