Perdue Foods Chicken Plus with Vegetable Nutrition
New poultry product blends cauliflower, chickpeas and plant protein
To help flexitarian families who are hungry for new ways to fill the vegetable void without sacrificing flavor or nutrition, Perdue introduced first-of-its-kind nationally distributed new PERDUE® Chicken Plus™ Nuggets, Tenders and Patties blended with vegetables.
Perdue's latest innovation PERDUE® Chicken Plus™ blends cauliflower, chickpeas and plant protein to create the next generation of frozen chicken nuggets, tenders and patties, and each serving is complete with one-quarter cup (half a serving of vegetables) and is made with 100% all-natural ingredients and no antibiotics ever white meat chicken.
In fact, 74% of people are looking to increase their vegetable intake, while people are seeking out plant-based proteins in nearly every aisle of the grocery store and looking for substitutes for their regular go-to meals and snacks.
PERDUE® Chicken Plus™ is available in the playful, favorite panko dinosaur-shaped nuggets, as well as crispy rice tenders and panko patties. When kids tested the new PERDUE® Panko Dino Chicken Plus™ Nuggets, they gave high marks for the overall look, texture and flavor.
PERDUE® Chicken Plus™ comes in a 22-ounce bag with a suggested retail price of $6.99, and will be available in food service and found in the freezer aisles nationwide in September 2019.
