LENEXA, KS -- Applebee's is adding more flavors and choices to its popular 2 for $20 menu, this time bringing a fresh take on Italian with Chicken Fettuccine Carbonara and Bruschetta Chicken.
As America's purse strings and wallets tighten, guests want more flavor for their buck and Applebee's new dishes deliver:
-- Chicken Fettuccine Carbonara - A juicy grilled chicken breast served over a hearty bed of fettuccine with fresh mushrooms, red peppers, peas, bacon, grape tomatoes, onions and Applebee's creamy carbonara sauce, topped with shredded Parmesan cheese and served with toasted garlic bread.
-- Bruschetta Chicken - Grilled chicken breast seasoned with bruschetta, parsley and a blend of Italian cheeses stacked on top of crispy red potatoes and fried onion and red and green peppers, topped with a duo of scampi sauce and Bolognese sauce.
"Our guests want great food at a great value," said Chef Shannon Johnson, executive director at Applebee's. "They can enjoy great food and flavors every day without breaking the bank."
