1/2 cup Dijon mustard
1/2 cup Honey
4 1/2 tsp Vegetable oil
1/2 tsp Lemon juice
4 boneless chicken breast halves
1/4 tsp salt and pepper; to taste
dash Paprika

1 cup Cheddar cheese; shredded

Original recipe makes 4



In a bowl, combine the mustard, honey, 1-1/2 teaspoons oil and lemon juice. Pour 1/2 cup into a large resealable plastic bag; add the chicken. Seal the bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 2 hours. Cover and refrigerate the remaining marinade.

Drain and discard marinade from chicken. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown chicken in remaining oil on all sides. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and paprika. Transfer to a greased 11-in. x 7-in. x 2-in. baking dish.

In the same skillet, saute mushrooms in butter until tender. Spoon reserved marinade over chicken. Top with cheeses and mushrooms. Place bacon strips in a crisscross pattern over chicken.

Bake, uncovered, at 375? for 20-25 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 170?. Sprinkle with parsley.


Taste like "Alice Springs Chicken" from Outback Restaurant

We added diced mini peppers to mushrooms & cooked the bacon before hand so we could mix it in with the mushroom & marinade. Delicious!

It is a copy of Alice Spring's Chicken from the Outback Steakhouse. Paula don't try ans steel a recipe and claim as your own. Not so good or honest.
