I’ve been buying chicken online for a long time and having it shipped straight to me. I’ve found this to be the most convenient way to get my family’s favorite protein without having to go to the store too much.
Last Fall, I was able to visit the farmhouse where my favorite chicken company, Perdue was started. I learned so much about their high-quality standards for their chickens, it made me even happier about my decision to order chicken online for my family through Perdue Farms and become their affiliate partner.
This week as more and more images showed up in my newsfeed of cleared out grocery stores and empty freezer-sections that are normally fully stocked with chicken and other proteins, I knew I had to tell you about the way my family orders chicken online.
This is the best way to get high-quality chicken in bulk, or by the package. And for those wondering, their chickens are fed 100% vegetarian diets with no antibiotics, ever. They really go the extra mile to make sure that everything is delicious and good for their customers.
Right now, I know many of us are just making sure we have the ingredients on hand for our favorite chicken dinner recipes, but I do like to know that I can feed my family well, even while practising “social distancing”.
Since I’ve been ordering from Perdue Farms for awhile now, I wanted to walk you through a few of my favorite products from them, to help you navigate the website and find what you need for dinner this week.
How to Order Chicken Online
I’ve found the Perdue Farms website very easy to navigate. You can start with their chicken index which helps you search by price, or cut of meat so you can find exactly what you’re looking for quickly and easily. You can scroll through all the chicken options here.
Nuggets and Tenders: If you have kids, you’ll definitely want to check out the breaded nuggets and chicken tenders. This section also includes “chicken plus” which is a star product at our house.
These nuggets are dino shaped (win!) plus they have 1/4 cup of veggies per serving. The veggies are blended up with the chicken, so they’re not noticeable at all, and kids eat them up. That huge resealable bag is pretty awesome too. Buy them here.
Chicken Breats: Next up, check out the huge selection of chicken breasts. Boneless skinless chicken breats are a key ingredient in so many chicken recipes, and you can order what you need by weight here.
To save time with meal prepping I usually order a box of the diced chicken breasts too. This chicken is ready to go straight in the pan so I can whip up some chicken tacos or a chicken stir fry in no time! Buy it here.
Thighs & Legs: For dark meat lovers, there are plenty of options for you too! From boneless skinless, to organic chicken and even bone-in chicken thighs, you can purchase what you need by weight here.
The chicken legs come in easy-open pouches with 2-4 drumsticks per pouch. This makes it easy to grab what you need when you need it without having to separate everything out. Buy them here.
Chicken Bundles: If you want to get everything you need in one place, and at a huge discount, try one of Perdue Chicken’s bundles!
One of my favorite bundles comes with sixty eight servings of protein and costs less than $1.46 a serving. This bundle is a great way to introduce your family to ordering chicken online and comes with the following:
- Whole chicken
- 3 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 2.8 pounds organic chicken wings
- 3 pounds organic drumsticks
- 3 pounds organic bone-in chicken thighs
- 8-ounce bag organic chicken nuggets
- 8-ounce bag organic chicken strips
Ordering Other Meats Online
While Perdue is known for their chicken, they also have a variety of other meats you can order, to make sure you have everything you need. You can grab a bundle of pork chops, steaks, sausage and bacon here.
If you don’t want a full bundle, but still want to grab something other than chicken with your order, here are a few highlights:
- NY Strip Steak
- Pork Breakfast Sausage
- Hickory Smoked Bacon
- Pulled Pork
- Applewood Smoked Ham
- Ground Pork
- Pork & Beef Franks
After you order your chicken, beef and pork, be sure to check out my recipe index. You can use it to sort recipes by the main ingredient; like eggs, chicken, beef or pork. This will help you find the best recipes to make using what you already have in your kitchen.
