I loved this entree, but Olive Garden dropped it several years ago.

I had this the other day and it came with 2 chicken breasts, I asked for a to go box and put one of them in there for lunch the next day for my husband. It was a nice meal

This has always been a chicken breast when I ordered it. It is absolutely delicious!

This is my favorite meal at Olive Garden. I love it. The apricot sauce makes the meal. I always order it on the side & dip my bites of chicken in it.
My husband loves to use my left over sauce as a dip for a breadstick :)

I usually have this - I have always had chicken breast, not patty though - and it is a delicious option! Because it is high in sodium, I ask that the apricot sauce be only put lightly on the chicken or put on the side. The veggies are fresh enough that they do not need the added sugar/salt to taste good. There is no pasta side with it, so I order the Minestrone soup which has some pasta shells in it, and I have half of a breadstick. That seems to curb my "starch" cravings. Mnay times, I bring one of the chicken breasts home for the next day's lunch.

I just had the Venetian Apricot Chicken on Saturday night and thought it was very tasty and filling. I selected it because it was one of the lowest calorie items on the "healthy" menu, but found it filling enough that I took about 1/4 of it home to have for lunch the next day.

This meal is a great helathy alternitive, in fact, I am going there tonight! If I remember right the Gnocchi Chicken soup is also fairly low in fat grams. That is also really good!

This is a delicious meal that allows you to enjoy a meal with friends and family. The only downfall is that there is no pasta (if that is what you have a taste for), but the apricot glaze is really yummy. The grilled vegetables are delightful.

KENBRAZAITIS, I am surprised it was a chicken patty, I just had this last night and it was a chicken breast.... weird. Any who. I LOVED this dish!!!! It was different, kind of zippy and sweet and sour. Very good! My friend made me laugh when the waiter brought it to the table, she was like... "Eww, that looks so healthy." And I said, "I know, isn't it AWESOME?!" lol I thought it tasted great! Willd definitely get again!

I think they got rid of my favorite 'chicken giardino' and replaced it with this. I'm not fond of it at all- it's too sweet for my taste.

For adding the meals to your log, why do these items show only the CALORIES? It would be more helpful to also know the carbs, fat, and protien. Otherwise, when you go to log your meal it apprears as if you had a bunch of empty calories.

It believe the calorie difference has something to do with lunch versus dinner portions. I asked at the restaurant and that is what they said. I would go with the higher number just to be sure...it's not that different.

Olive Garden's website says the dinner portion has 380 calories and 4 grams of fat. On this website it says 448 calories. I am confused.

I love Olive Garden and the Apricot Chicken is my favorite dish.
