Panera Thai Chicken Soup Recipe

Panera Thai Chicken Soup is the perfect combination of flavors. This restaurant-style soup has a creamy coconut milk base with the fragrant flavors of red curry, lemongrass, and soy sauce. It’s light enough for summer but hearty enough for colder months. Serve it up with your favorite crusty bread or jasmine rice for an easy one-pot meal.
