We stopped visiting our local Applebee’s when the kids got too old for the kids meals. Occasionally we would visit our quaint and cozy Neighborhood Grill for half price appetizers, but we just couldn’t justify the cost for a bunch of adult meals plus appetizers during normal hours.
Because we all liked the same things, I started making our favorites at home in large batches. Below you will find our favorite 19 Applebee’s Copycat Recipes. Try one (or two) and let me know which is your favorite.
1- These Potstickers promise to be easier and yummier than you could get at your local Applebee’s.
2- Need dinner asap? Fiesta Lime Chicken only takes 30 minutes! This tender and juicy chicken is topped with melty cheese and spicy pico.
3- Applebee’s is always changing what unique flavors they can add to their teas and lemonades. Kiwi Lemonade is one of my favorites.
4- Applebee’s French Onion Soup is a classic French Onion soup, so flavorful and so perfect for when you want a light meal.
5- Do you love a crunchy salad? Then you need to try this Oriental Salad.
6- With a few simple ingredients, probably ones you already have around the house you can enjoy a Clubhouse Grille Sandwich right at home.
7- $8.99 for four mini tacos? No way. Make Wonton Tacos in your own kitchen.
8- This Spinach and Artichoke Dip claims to be even better than the restaurant version.
9- Creamy cheese, crispy chicken strips and a honey pepper sauce….can’t go wrong with Honey Pepper Chicken Mac and Cheese.
10- Double this Three Cheese Chicken Penne recipe for a large crowd.
11- Green Bean Crispers with Lemon Garlic Aioli are a fan favorite, even for none veggie lovers.
12- Queso Blanco is one of my favorite appetizers. Even when made at home it is smooth, creamy, and has just that little bit of spice.

14- Pair those amazing mashed potatoes with Smothered Steak, you won’t be disappointed.

16- Pizza Sticks were a favorite of ours, but they aren’t on the menu anymore

18- No one can match the taste of Applebee’s Quesadillas. This Copycat version of their quesadillas promises to comes pretty close.
19- Desert is the best part. That’s why I’ve saved this Maple Butter Blondie recipe for last . Chewy white chocolate and walnut blondies, topped with maple brown sugar sauce. Yum!
