      This was good, but it didn't taste like the one from Applebee's. Also, while there might be a lot of ingredients, it was very easy to put together. I did leave out the jalapenos due to personal preference. It might just be because I left out the jalapenos, but the sour cream taste was a little overwhelming - I will definitely cut back on that next time.

      Loved the dressing on the salad I made to go with the chicken and chips. Marinated the chicken for 5 hours and turned out great. Didn't put it into the oven, just let the cheese melt on it, then mixed with salad.
