Applebee’s Chicken Salad

Applebee’s Chicken Salad

This easy restaurant copycat Applebee’s Chicken Salad combines romaine and coleslaw with crispy chicken, sliced almonds, crunchy chow mein noodles, sweet mandarin oranges, and an irresistible creamy & sweet dressing. Applebee’s Chicken Salad is mega-popular — and for good reason! It’s crunchy, sweet & savory, and completely satisfying. If you order the salad in the restaurant you’re looking at spending a good chunk of change and over 1500 calories, but making it from home can be tedious, expensive, and not so nutritious too!

So today we’re simplifying the process, making it a bit more nutritious, and doing this all while keeping all the flavors you know and love.

We do add one ingredient you won’t find in Applebee’s salad — mandarin oranges; we love the sweetness and texture these add to the salad, but feel free to leave them out for a more authentic version.


  • 2 cups (300g) frozen breaded chicken tenders
  • 1 package (10 oz.) hearts of romaine salad
  • 1/2 of 1 (16 oz.) package coleslaw mix
  • 1 can (15oz, 425g) mandarin oranges
  • 1/3 cup (24g) crispy chow mein noodles 
  • 1/3 cup (28g) sliced almonds
  • 1/3 cup (67g) good mayo (we love Hellman's/Best Foods)
  • 3 tablespoons (68g) honey
  • 2 tablespoons (28g) rice vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
