Panera Chicken Caesar Sandwich

The Chicken Caesar sandwich found on the Panera Bread restaurant menu takes the flavor of the chain's classic Caesar salad and places it between its freshly-baked Miche bread. The sandwich can be purchased daily at the restaurant, but it can be hard to enjoy frequently without breaking the budget. While this Panera Chicken Caesar sandwich is easy to prepare, it does require fresh bread for best results. Be sure to pick up a fresh loaf of Panera's Three Cheese Miche loaf from the bakery the same day you plan to make the sandwich for a restaurant-quality meal.
