    Applebee's® Low-Fat Asian Chicken Salad

    As the seasons change so does the menu, at this
    popular 1064-unit casual restaurant chain. You’ll
    find this item in the “Low-Fat and Fabulous” column
    during the summer months where it’s been a favorite
    since 1997. As with any salad, the waistline violator
    is the traditionally fat-filled dressing that’s
    drizzled in gobs over the top of very healthy greens
    (a tablespoon of dressing is usually around 10-12
    grams of fat each). So if we can just figure out a
    cool way to make the dressing fat-free, we’re well
    on our way to making huge salad – four of them to be
    exact – with only 12 grams of fat on the entire plate.
    Most of those grams come from the chicken breast, while
    the crunchy chow mein noodles pick up the rest. Just be
    sure to plan ahead when you make this one. The chicken
    should marinate for a few hours if you want it to taste
    like the original. Get ready for some big, meal-size salads.

    1 cup teriyaki marinade
    4 chicken breast fillets
    Fat-Free Asian Dressing
    2 cups water
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    3 tablespoons dry pectin
    1 tablespoon white vinegar
    1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    1/4 teaspoon paprika
    8 cups chopped romaine lettuce
    8 cups chopped iceberg lettuce
    3 cups shredded red cabbage
    3 cups shredded green cabbage
    2 cups shredded carrots
    1 cup chopped green onion
    1 1/3 cups crispy chow mein noodles

    1. Combine teriyaki marinade and chicken breasts in a medium
    bowl or resealable plastic bag. Marinate chicken for 3-4 hours.

    2. Prepare the dressing by combining all of the ingredients
    in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring mixture to a
    rolling boil while stirring often with a whisk, then remove
    the pan from the heat to cool. When dressing has cooled, pour
    it into a covered container and chill.

    3. When chicken breasts have marinated, preheat barbecue grill
    to high heat. Grill chicken for 3-4 minutes per side, or until
    done.

    4. Combine the romaine and iceberg lettuce, red and green cabbage
    and 1 cup of shredded carrots in a large bowl with the dressing.
    Toss well.

    5. Divide the tossed greens among four plates. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of
    green onions over each salad, followed by 1/3 cup of crispy chow
    mein noodles.

    6. When the chicken breasts are done, slice each one, widthwise,
    into bite-size pieces. Sprinkle the sliced chicken breasts over
    each salad.

    7. Place a 1/4 cup pile of shredded carrots in the center of
    each salad.

    Cinnabon Cinnamon Roll

    Serving Size : 12
    Categories : Rolls

    INGREDIENTS:

    DOUGH

    1/4 cup warm water,
    1 cup milk -- room temperature
    1 large egg -- beaten,
    1/4 cup butter -- softened,
    1 tablespoon sugar
    1/2 teaspoon salt,
    4 cups all purpose white flour
    1/2 package instant vanilla pudding mix (3.4 oz box)
    1 tablespoon bread machine yeast

    FILLING

    1 cup brown sugar -- lightly packed
    1 tablespoon cinnamon,
    1/4 cup butter -- softened

    CREAM CHEESE CINNAMON FROSTING,

    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    4 ounces cream cheese -- softened,
    1/4 cup butter -- softened
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla,
    1/2 tablespoon milk,
    1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

    *********
    Preparation Instructions: Dough; (Add the dough ingredients,
    in the order listed, to the bread machine and prepare using the dough setting. On a lightly floured surface, roll out to an 18" by 30" rectangle. The dough can also be handmade. If you
    use regular yeast, you may want to let the rolls rise for 15-30 minutes after assembly.

    Filling

    In a small bowl, mix brown sugar and cinnamon. Spread the softened butter over the dough and evenly sprinkle on the sugar and cinnamon mixture.
    Starting at the long edge of the dough, roll up tightly. Mark the roll every 2 inches. With a piece of thread. Cut the roll by placing
    the thread under the roll at your mark crisscross over and pull to cut. Place rolls into greased 8" or 9" baking pans 2"
    apart. Cover and let rise in a warm, draft free place until almost double, approximately 1 hour. After rising, rolls should be touching each other and the sides of the pan. Bake at 350
    degrees F. for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden brown.

    Cream Cheese Cinnamon Frosting

    In a small bowl, mix cream cheese, butter, vanilla and milk. Add powdered sugar and cinnamon and
    mix until smooth. Spread on warm rolls and serve immediately.
    This recipe has been adjusted so that the dough can be prepared in your bread machine. These will taste most like the originals if you use Makara Cinnamon (available at the Cinnabon Stands)instead of conventional powdered cinnamon from the supermarket.
