Don’t give up on salads until you’ve tried this one at Chili’s. Crisp greens are topped with fresh pineapple, Mandarin oranges, dried cranberries, red bell peppers, green onions, cilantro, sesame seeds and grilled chicken for the perfect combination of sweet and savory. The salad comes with honey lime dressing (request the dressing on the side, which is not included in this analysis). Each tablespoon will add an extra 70 calories and 6 g fat, but chances are you won’t need it with all the toppings!

Margarita Grilled Chicken, Special Request (390 calories, 7g fat)

Tired of the same old, same old chicken? This Classic Margarita-flavored grilled chicken will spice it up with hints of lime and citrus for a fresh, tangy flavor. To keep this a diet-friendly choice, opt for steamed broccoli instead of rice and skip the tortilla strips served on the side. Do enjoy the black beans and house-made pico de gallo that add flavor AND waist-friendly fiber to your meal.
