Alice Springs Chicken

 AliceSpringsChickenIf you have visited an Outback Restaurant, you probably have seen Alice Springs Chicken on their menu.  On our occasional visits to Outback, we usually order beef, so I have never eaten this dish there, but there are dozens of copycat recipes online. This is my version, voted “please make this again soon” by my family.  I use a downloaded image because this was one of those meals served immediately. It looked and smelled so good, we only took time to say Thank you God for our family and food and listen for 2-year-old Nora’s hearty “Maymen!” before enjoying.
Alice Springs Chicken
4-5 boneless chicken breasts
1/2 cup mustard
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons dried onion flakes
6 slices bacon
1/3 cup honey
2 cups sliced  Baby Bella mushrooms
2 cups shredded cheddar
salt and pepper to taste

 Sprinkle chicken breasts with sea salt and pepper. Cook bacon until crisp, remove and set aside. Do not discard grease. Brown chicken in the bacon grease for 3 to 5 minutes per side. Place chicken in a 9″ x 13″ casserole dish or pan.

In a small bowl, mix the mustard, honey, mayonnaise and dried onion flakes.

Spread Honey Mustard over each piece of chicken, then layer with mushrooms, crumbled bacon, and shredded cheese.

Bake in a 350° oven for 30 minutes, or until cheese is melted and chicken is done.
