Alice Springs Chicken

 Have you ever eaten at the Outback? 
I almost always get steak, I mean that's the point of going to a steak house right?
I came across this recipe on Pinterest and well the rest is history.
It is a new staple in our house.
Everyone loved it.
Even my non mushroom eating son.
Everything is better with bacon and cheese right?
Have a fabulous weekend!

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/2 inch thickness
seasoning salt (I make my own, but any brand will do)
6 slices bacon, crumbled
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

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 bakind dish.

Spoon the honey mustard to each breast, then layer each piece with the mushrooms, sprinkle on the crumbled bacon, and shredded cheese.

Bake in a 350° oven for 20-25 minutes, or until cheese is melted and chicken is done.

  1. Wow this looks delicious! I pinned this recipe :-)

  2. This is my kind of chicken . . . mmm!

  3. I used a Creole Seasoning with a pinch of sugar in place of the seasoned salt since I don't use that, and garnished with sliced scallions. It was a winner and will certainly be made again. Thanks for sharing this.

    1. That does sound good. I may just try that. Glad you liked it.

  4. I just saw your picture of this on Instagram and had to come on over and check it out. We love Outback but I always end up ordering the same thing every time. I have seen this on the menu but really had no idea what it was. It looks amazing! My boys love honey mustard anything so I'm sure this would go over very well. Pinning! Happy to have found your site :)

  8. I made this tonight and this recipe is a keeper....very tasty! Used "perfect chicken" seasoning to season the chicken (equal parts of salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder and onion powder). Yum!
