Panera Whips Up New Thai Chicken Soup and Citrus Asian Crunch Salad

Panera Bread starts the new year by welcoming two new menu items: Thai Chicken Soup and Citrus Asian Crunch Salad with chicken.

Panera's Thai Chicken Soup features chicken, carrots, shiitake mushrooms, red bell peppers, and edamame simmered in a "gently spicy" Thai yellow coconut curry broth made with lemongrass, ginger, galangal, and Thai lime.

Panera's Citrus Asian Crunch Salad with chicken takes romaine lettuce, chopped broccoli, green cabbage, carrots, kale, edamame, pickled red onions, and fresh cilantro and tosses them in tangerine soy ginger dressing before finishing with warm chicken thigh meat, carrots, and a teriyaki drizzle on top.

The two new menu items can be ordered by themselves or as part of a mix-and-match "You Pick 2" combination of your choice of a half sandwich, half salad, and/or cup of soup.

Panera also brings back Valentine Cookies for a limited time. The heart-shaped shortbread cookies come frosted with a Valentine's Day theme.
