TGI Fridays' Rotisserie Chicken Salad Sandwich

Silly Salad Sandwich

We're usually able to stop ourselves from ordering a chicken salad sandwich. All that mayo? Nutritional nightmare! But this one has our willpower wavering, thanks to yummy almonds, tasty cranberries, herbed-up mayo, fresh veggies, and rotisserie-style chicken. It all sounds so good! But one look at the stats puts us right back on track -- this chicken sandwich has more calories and fat than the beef 'n cheese French Dip at Fridays! Pretty ridiculous. Especially since it's so easy to give it a guilt-free makeover. Make our sandwich at home -- fewer calories; more satisfaction...
