PERDUE® SIMPLY SMART® ORGANICS Lightly Breaded Chicken Breast Strips Among PEOPLE Magazine’s Best New Frozen Supermarket Products

July 2, 2019

Salisbury, Md. (Tuesday, July 2, 2019) — PERDUE® SIMPLY SMART® ORGANICS Lightly Breaded Chicken Breast Strips today was named a PEOPLE Food Awards 2019 Best New Supermarket Product of the Year. The strips took gold as best frozen chicken product among PEOPLE staffers who selected the “most delicious new supermarket foods.”

“Fully cooked and frozen, the lightly breaded strips take minutes to heat up, and come out plump, crispy and juicy,” said PEOPLE editors, who sampled more than 1,200 new products.

PERDUE® SIMPLY SMART® ORGANICS Lightly Breaded Chicken Breast Strips are part of the PERDUE® SIMPLY SMART® Organics product lineup that includes whole grain, certified gluten-free and lightly breaded varieties of nuggets, strips and tenders in the frozen and refrigerated foods sections. All products are made with simple ingredients consumers can pronounce, recognize and easily find in their home pantry or grocery store. PERDUE® SIMPLY SMART® products are also a smart choice, with 25 percent less fat and most with 50 percent fewer calories compared to USDA data for breaded, fried boneless chicken.

The story will appear in the July 15 issue. You can see it online now.
