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.
