From Fiesta Lime Chicken and Honey-Grilled Salmon to garlicky mashed potatoes and even dessert, we've got all the recipes you need to make it an Applebee's night without ever placing an order.

Applebee's Honey-Grilled Salmon

"This recipe is so easy and delicious. My daughter, who won't touch salmon, went back for seconds after tasting it. I also made a ham with the leftover sauce, and it was great!"


Applebee's Hot Artichoke & Spinach Dip

"This dip is even tastier than Applebee's! I sprinkle extra Parmesan cheese and some chopped red onion on top when it comes out of the oven. It's absolutely addictive!"


Applebee's Low-Fat Blackened Chicken Salad

"Every component of this is absolutely fantastic! I prepared the marinade, spice blend and dressing ahead of time, so dinner was made in a snap."


Applebee's Garlic & Peppercorn Fried Shrimp

"These were excellent! I coated mine with Homemade Panko Breadcrumbs with Italian seasoning, plus all the called-for seasonings, and then deep fried them."


Applebee's Vegetable Medley

"Delicious and easy! The Worcestershire and soy sauces didn't overpower this recipe, just gave it a nice, mild flavor. I also added a pinch of chili pepper flakes to give it a bit of a kick."


Applebee's Fiesta Lime Chicken

"We loved this dinner. The chicken was incredibly tender and flavorful, and the basting sauce was fantastic — I could have eaten that all by itself!"


Applebee's Garlic Mashed Potatoes

"I cheated and used garlic salt to save time, and the recipe still came out like Applebee's! I mashed the potatoes with a pastry cutter for a lumpier texture, and the results were so tasty!"

-Lorrie in California

Applebee's Honey Barbecue Riblets

"I recommend slow cooking these for the full 5 hours — the meat literally fell off the bones. Plus, the sauce has a great mixture of sweet flavors. I highly recommend this!"

-Tom in Maryland

Applebee's Maple Butter Blondie Dessert

"My son and I both love this dessert at Applebee's so much that I had to find a copycat recipe. I didn't have white chocolate so I left it out, and it's still great!"


Applebee's Low-Fat Veggie Quesadilla

"I love this — low fat, healthy, easy and so good! When I added the soy sauce the aroma was fantastic. I also added some Tabasco sauce. Spicy and wonderful!"


Applebee's 3-Cheese Chicken Penne

"My son had this as leftovers and thought it was better than Applebee's! I added some extra pasta, layered the ingredients in a casserole dish and baked it for 30 minutes. I will definitely make this again!"


Applebee's Chicken Quesadilla Grande

Make these Applebee's-style Mexican bites as an appetizer or for a light lunch, served with your favorite salsa, guacamole or other toppings.

Applebee's Bananaberry Freeze

"The ice and banana made this thick but nicely drinkable. I used fresh strawberries, and the pi�a colada mix really gave this something special."


Applebee's Pizza Sticks

"This pizza sauce is very good — better than any jarred sauce — and the sticks are really crispy when they're fried!"
