Oh Yum, Yum! This is definitely a treat of a dish that was very well enjoyed. From the honey sauced chicken to the cheesy pasta, was it ever good! I rarely go to Applebee’s, therefore, I’ve never had this dish there to compare, but I bet theirs can’t be any better than this recipe. Try it, you’ll love it. Thank you, Dee, for sharing.
