Review: It takes a lot to get the Chain Gang to not order a Cosi thin crust flatbread pizza. But we always like to try their specials, too, and the Autumn Apple Chicken Salad is a winner. With soft-cooked apples, cranberries and candied pistachios, it's plenty sweet. But it gets a little tang from small pieces of feta, and protein from diced chicken. Even with a Mojito Lemonade, you can eat a lunch of less than 900 calories.

Synopsis: A freshly made salad that's sweet and satisfying.
