Buttermilk Fried Chicken
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.

4 tbsp. olive oil
3 tbsp. lemon juice
3 tbsp. red wine vinegar
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 tbsp. chopped cilantro
1 tbsp. red pepper flakes
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
4 large or 8 medium potatoes, Yukon Gold, russet, or red bliss
4 tbsp. butter, melted
1 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
Lemon wedges for garnish
In a bowl or 2-cup glass measuring cup, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, garlic, cilantro, red pepper flakes and salt and black pepper. Place the chicken in a glass baking dish. Pour the Peri Peri sauce over the chicken and toss to coat well. Marinate the chicken in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour and up to overnight. 30 minutes before you’re ready to roast, take the chicken out of the refrigerator, prepare the potatoes and preheat the oven to 425°F.
Slice each potato crosswise at 1/8 to 1/4-inch intervals. Cut almost to the bottom but not all the way through the potato. Slice down through the potato and when the knife hits the edge of the spoon, stop slicing.
TIP: For best results, choose oblong potatoes of uniform size and trim if needed so they'll lie flat without wobbling as you cut into them. You can rest the potato in a large serving spoon and use that as a guide for when to stop slicing — slice straight down, and when your knife hits the edge of the spoon, stop slicing.
Keeping the chicken in the glass baking dish, arrange the potatoes in the dish with the chicken. Brush the potatoes all over with half the melted butter. Season with salt and black pepper. Roast the chicken and potatoes for 35 to 40 minutes. Remove the baking dish from the oven. Baste the chicken with pan juices. Brush the potatoes with the remaining melted butter, making sure to brush the butter into the slices as the potatoes start to spread open. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese onto the tops of the potatoes. Return the baking dish to the oven and roast for an additional 20 minutes, or until chicken and potatoes are cooked through and nicely browned. Chicken is done when it feels firm to the touch and a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 170°F.
Remove the chicken and potatoes from the oven. Let the chicken rest for 5 to 10 minutes before carving. Pour the Peri Peri pan juices into a serving container. Serve Peri Peri Chicken with potatoes, sauce and lemon wedges.
