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.

Ingredients Ingredients


1 can (14 oz.) light coconut milk, divided

1/2 tsp. ground coriander

1/4 tsp. ground cumin

1/4 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

Zest and juice from 1 lime

1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut

1 cup jasmine rice

1 cup frozen petite peas, thawed

2 tbsp. chopped cilantro

1 dash salt and ground pepper, optional

Step 1

In a large bowl, combine 1/2 cup coconut milk, coriander, cumin, salt, cayenne, lime zest and juice. Add chicken and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate 1 to 2 hours.

Step 2

Remove chicken from marinade; reserve marinade. Coat a large non-stick skillet with cooking spray and heat on medium-high heat. Add chicken and brown on two sides, about 5 minutes per side. Reduce heat; pour reserved marinade into pan. Cover, bring to a simmer and cook 20 minutes until chicken is cooked through 180°F.

Step 3

Meanwhile, in a medium-size dry skillet or saucepan, toast coconut over medium heat, stirring frequently until golden brown. Remove from pan.

Step 4

Pour remaining coconut milk into a measuring cup and add water to make 2 1/4 cups. Pour into pan used for coconut. Bring to a simmer. Add rice; cover, reduce heat to low and simmer 20 minutes or until rice is soft and liquid is absorbed. Stir in peas, cilantro and coconut; season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve chicken and sauce over rice.
