Panera Jumps Into the Chicken Sandwich Wars With Two Healthier Options

Are the Chicken Sandwich Wars still raging? Though far from the fervor where at its height, fast food giants volleyed with their own fowl entrants, now’s as good as any time to have more brands get in the mix. Take Panera for example, who has just released two new chicken sandwich options, both of which are not breaded or fried.

Panera’s take on the chicken sandwich will be marinated and seasoned chicken breast in both regular and spicy varieties, with both nestled in between brioche buns.

The regular option features aioli, parmesan crisps, and greens on a brioche bun, while the spicy take has aioli, pickle chips, and spicy Buffalo sauce.
