Perdue is introducing first-of-its-kind nationally distributed new Chicken plus nuggets, tenders and patties blended with vegetables.

The latest innovation 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.

“Boosting meat with high-quality plant protein is a great way to give the consumer more choices while enhancing both sustainability and nutrition,” said Paul Shapiro, CEO of The Better Meat Co., with whom Perdue partnered to source some of the plant-based ingredients.
