Applebee’s is extending its line of Sizzling Skillet dishes with three new choices at the value-positioned price of $8.99, the company announced Thursday.
The dishes are served sizzling at the table with fragrant sauces designed to tempt the senses, said Shannon Johnson, Applebee’s executive chef.
“From the kitchen to the table, fresh flavor never sounded, smelled, tasted or looked so good,” he said. “Casual dining guests are easily bored with the expected menu options, so we infuse surprising, bold flavors and combinations into our new menu creations.”
The new dishes include Sizzling Asian Shrimp, made with flame-grilled shrimp served over a bed of rice and a vegetable medley of broccoli, red peppers, sugar snap peas, mushrooms and carrots, drizzled with a sweet-and-spicy sauce and topped with wonton strips and cilantro.
The Sizzling Steak and Cheese serves up a nine-ounce sirloin steak with Italian cheeses, sautéed onions, mushrooms, and red and green peppers alongside garlic mashed potatoes.
Also new is the Sizzling Chicken and Spicy Queso Blanco, a grilled seven-ounce chicken breast with sautéed onions and red and green peppers topped with a spicy queso blanco and cilantro. It is served with a side of home-style fried potatoes.
The new lineup is offered in addition to the existing Sizzling Skillet items of Bourbon Street Steak and Sizzling Fajitas, the company said.
Owned by Glendale, Calif.-based DineEquity Inc., the Applebee’s casual-dining chain, based in Lenexa, Kan., includes more than 2,000 locations in 49 states, 16 countries and one U.S. territory.
