Food News: Panera Bread introduces Lemon-Chicken Orzo Soup
Panera Bread likes to keep their cafe-based menu concept “seasonal,” and has announced the arrival of some familiar summer favorites, as well as several new menu items to stores nationwide. Aside from bringing back the Strawberry Poppyseed and Chicken Salad, Panera is also busting out a new low-fat soup, Lemon Chicken Orzo.
A Mediterranean inspired soup with chicken, orzo, spinach, carrots, oregano and basil simmered in a lemon infused chicken broth and topped with a lemon wheel.
A full serving of the soup rings in at 160 calories, 4 grams of fat (1 saturated) and 15 grams of protein. Aside from the soup and salad, Panera is also promoting several other menu items, including new Flower Shortbread Cookies and a Steak and Egg Breakfast Sandwich.
