Simple process: Take it out of the outer bag, toss it still inside the inner bag into a pan, cut a small slit in it, into the over it goes. Smooth, no fuss, no muss.
The beauty is the end result. Tender, juicy, flavorful...the result that usually requires hours of brining to achieve. Best proof of how good it was? Right here.
That's my three-year-old's plate. But there's no chicken on it!
The leftovers are just as good, and plentiful. Even after the family pounced on the poor bird, I was able to make a batch of chicken fried rice and still have just enough left for this great buffalo chicken salad.
But the best part is when I learned that this product, in addition to being easy and tasty, is also USDA Process Verified. Perdue was the first poultry company to achieve that. To receive this, they must:
1. Present a detailed program to USDA with support for why this program is appropriate and accurate
2. Implement the program successfully
3. Pass continual audits from the USDA AMS auditors
4. If new validated practices evolve in the future, the program must change to include these new practices.
So it's not just a one-time thing. I know I like to have confidence that a brand will be consistent in their practices, and I'm overjoyed to know that a personal favorite brand like Perdue has the highest of standards. All the more reason that the Perdue Oven Ready Roaster has found a permanent place in my heart, and on my grocery list.
