    Restaurant Dining—National Chains

    Recipes that resourceful Zaar Chefs have begged, bought or stolen from their favorite national chain restaurants. To the best of my ability, I've tried to use only authentic original recipes, not copycats. If I've inadvertently included a copycat recipe of yours please let me know. (Also see my regional Restaurant Dining cookbooks: Northeastern U.S. , Midwestern U.S. , Southern U.S. , Western U.S. , Canada , Outside the U.S. & Canada .)

    This is the original recipe from Boston Market. Serving size is approximate but I guesstimate about 8-10 servings. Edited to say: I found the crunch topping to be more than needed. Half would be sufficient.

    I thought this sounded interesting as an appetizer for a Mexican meal. Recipe source: Coyote Cafe

    This is the recipe that you are looking for. I have a copy of the food manual and this is the recipe to the T. Enjoy!

    Recipe #197207

    I spent 16+ years at Chi Chi's. This is the recipe you want. In the restaurant these are cooked right on the plate. (Remember... The plates are hot and then you touched them anyway. lol) You could cook them all together in a baking dish. Cook time and temperature may need to be adjusted if not cooking with a convection oven. Enjoy with your favorite spanich rice, refried beans and sweet corn cake.

    Recipe #148921

    I worked at Chi-Chi's for 16+ years. My favorite sauce over all those years was called Diablo Sauce. My favorite food to eat there was the Soft Taco Enchilada style with Diablo Sauce. A little shredded lettuce and pico de gillo on both sides. Yum!

    Culinary choices typically change with the seasons. So as fall gives way to winter, comfort foods become increasingly more popular. That’s true at Smokey Bones Barbeque & Grill, which operates casual dining restaurants in the Eastern and Midwestern U.S. The Smokey Bones Brunswick Stew is one of the restaurant’s most popular menu items, particularly in winter. At-home chefs will serve up a warm, memorable, seasonal meal with this Smokey Bones recipe:

    You can add shredded chicken to this for a main dish salad. Note: the original recipe uses raw egg yolks, I prefer to use egg beaters (for safety reasons), but it probably isn't authentic Caesar Salad that way - the choice is yours. Recipe source: Coyote Cafe

    Used to be able to get these at most Vermont Howard Johnsons. These days, you pretty well have to make your own.

    Recipe #15865

    Heavenly is all I can say!! I had these cookies on a trip many years ago while staying at a Doubletree Hotel (they left one on each pillow each day after cleaning the rooms) and always thought they were "THE BEST" chocolate chip cookies I had ever eaten! I have searched High and Low for a recipe for anything similar to what I had eaten at the Doubletree and recently found this recipe (unfortunately I can't remember where I got the recipe from)and have made them several times since. They are a little more time-consuming than regular chocolate chip cookies but well worth the extra time! This recipe makes extra large cookies. I'm not sure as to the exact prep time and I don't always chill the dough overnight) From Even More Top Secret Recipes.

    This is a recipe that was given to me from Olive Garden when we ate there one night.

    Recipe #144817

    I worked at Ruby Tuesdays for many years and this is how they made em'. Great Football food or snack with a movie. I always have to make more when I make them for Football parties because they are gobbled up quickly.
