I am always looking for ways to “spice up” plain ol’ chicken breasts and this one seriously became one of my top 3 favorites! Whenever we go to Outback Steakhouse, my husband always gets a big steak and I always order their Alice Springs Chicken. Then when I found this recipe, I decided to put it to the test to see if it tastes anything like the restaurant’s chicken . . .
I dare say that it was almost better!
And it’s easy to make . . .
So if you need a meal that will impress your dinner guests, look no further because here it is!
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/2 inch thickness
6 slices bacon, cut in half
1/4 cup mustard
1/3 cup honey
2 tablespoons mayo
1/2 tablespoon dried onion flakes
1 tablespoon cooking oil
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
2 cups shredded Colby/Jack cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
Sprinkle and rub the chicken breasts with seasoning salt. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Cook bacon in a large skillet until crisp.
In a small bowl, mix the mustard, honey, mayo and dried onion flakes.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place chicken in the skillet and saute for 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until browned. Move chicken to an 11x7 inch or 9x9 inch pan.
Apply the honey mustard to each breast, then layer with mushrooms, bacon, and shredded cheese.
Bake in a 350° oven for 20-25 minutes, or until cheese is melted and chicken is done.
Serve with honey mustard sauce.
Mix the mayo, yellow mustard, Dijon mustard, honey, onion flakes and lemon juice together in a bowl. Cover and chill in refrigerator overnight. Serve with chicken.

**When my mom makes this, she makes tops each individual chicken breast with sauce, bacon, mushrooms, and cheese so it looks pretty . . . I made mine "casserole style" and just spread out the sauce, bacon, mushrooms, and cheese all over the place (I'm lazy like that). Either way, it tastes the same! 🙂
