What’s For Dinner? Ask The Chicken Bot

Not sure what to do with that chicken in your fridge that has to be cooked (or tossed) tonight? Ironically, you can just ask the chicken for ideas.  

Meet Sandy our new chatbot

An AI chicken chatbot rolled out by poultry producer Sanderson Farms offers consumers specially-crafted recipes, cooking tips, serving suggestions, and more.

Named Sandy and powered by OpenAI’s API for ChatGPT, the ChatBot shares chicken recipes based on user-provided details. Sandy even considers your specific dietary needs and preferences — gluten-free, Keto, low-fat — this chicken is all about your kitchen.

“We are proud to introduce Sandy, the first-ever chicken chatbot tool, to answer just about any question as it relates to recipes and cooking tips,” said Hilary Burroughs, Vice President of Marketing for Wayne-Sanderson Farms.

“We hope consumers find Sandy to be polite, witty and helpful, just like a good friend, to discuss all things chicken,” Burroughs added.

If you pop over to the Sanderson Farms website, you’ll see an unassuming and quiet prompt inviting you to start a chat with Sandy. She (he?) already has suggestions ready if you have no idea what to ask. Sandy can offer up meal ideas for picky eaters, what to make with leftovers, or how to add international flair. 

“For over 70 years, Sanderson Farms has been delivering good, honest chicken. From healthy and affordable recipes to straightforward labels on our packaging, we are continually working to add value for our consumers. Leveraging innovative artificial intelligence technology presents yet another way for us to connect with home cooks and empower them in the kitchen,” said Burroughs.

Sanderson Farms is a brand of Wayne-Sanderson Farms, the nation’s third largest poultry producer. To visit Sanderson Farms’ website and begin a chat with Sandy, visit sandersonfarms.com.
