Applebee's is jumping on the healthy restaurant menu bandwagon.

New year, new Applebee’s menu items. The restaurant chain started 2012 with three new dishes — all under 550 calories.

The entrees start with a Roasted Garlic Sirloin, 7 oz. of garlic-marinated sirloin served up with potatoes and creamed spinach stuffed mushrooms. The Sizzling Chili Lime Chicken is served over rice with Asian-style vegetables in a spicy chili sauce. Rounding out the new menu is an Asian Shrimp & Broccoli, a sweet and spicy dish with mixed vegetables and blackened shrimp.

“The focus is on the flavors,” said Chef Shannon Johnson, executive director at Applebee’s. “Even when they are watching their calories, our guests want great flavors, choices including proteins and carbs and full-size portions. With our Under 550 menu, the only thing missing is the calories.”
