I agree with Moonchild. I'm not a fan of Applebee's. For one thing, in my area, I find that Applebee's portions are very meager. I don't see how they can possibly be giving accurate totals on their calories on what I am eating. These portions may be an actually serving but they don't fill me up. I'm used to eating 4.5 servings a day of veggies. A 6 ounce steak (which I have problems believing starts out at 6 ounces because it looks awfully small to me - I'm used to weighing my food so I would know) and a couple of dry broccoli spear is not enough food for me. I'm use to oil or butter on my veggies.
Your problem could also have been caused by how the chicken was fixed. Where do the 550 calories come from? Some sugar laden sauce? They are usually touting low calorie and low fat, not low carb.
You could have also have encountered a craving. Something that spikes your blood sugar.
At any rate I would not eat this again.
