This easy copycat Alice Springs Chicken recipe is a packed with flavor! It’s a great way to break up the familiar “chicken” routine.
This post was part of my original 365 days of posting-Day 167 to be exact. Of all the recipes I’ve found thanks to Pinterest this one is still my husband’s favorite. I figured it was time for a little update and some new photos! 🙂 Now back in time we go…
Yesterday was Pay Day, so once again the pantry is bursting with two weeks’ worth of goodies and new recipe ingredients. Last night for dinner I made Alice Springs chicken like the Outback Steakhouse recipe. It was super yummy and pretty easy, too! I like that all the ingredients were “normal” things I have all the time. Yum!!! (Now back to my Thanksgiving baking!)

- 4-6 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to ½" thickness (don't skip this step!)
- salt and pepper to taste
- 6 bacon slices, cooked
- ¼ cup Dijon mustard
- ⅓ cup honey
- 2 Tbsp Mayonnaise (optional)
- 2 tsp onion powder
- ½ cup sliced fresh mushrooms
- 1 cup shredded Colby Jack cheese
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Pound out chicken breasts and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Set aside.
- Cook bacon in a frying pan and drain on a paper towel. Don't discard the bacon grease yet!
- Add chicken breasts to the pan and saute in the bacon grease for 3-5 minutes on each side.
- Remove and place in a 9x13 baking pan.
- In a small bowl, mix mustard, honey and onion powder. You can add the mayo for extra creaminess, or leave it out. I enjoy it either way.
- Slather each chicken breast in honey mustard sauce, then top with bacon, mushrooms and cheese.
- Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes, until chicken is cooked through and cheese is melted.
