Alice Springs Chicken

Sunday, June 21, 2009

This is a copycat recipe from Outback Steakhouse. The chicken is marinated in honey mustard then smothered with bacon and cheese. Justin loves honey mustard almost as much as he loves peanut butter and chocolate, so I thought this would make the perfect Father's Day dinner!

1/4 cup spicy brown (or Grey Poupon) mustard
1/4 cup regular yellow mustard
1/2 cup honey
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
8 slices bacon, cooked
1 cup shredded cheese (I've used Cheddar and Colby Jack, both work great)
Salt and Pepper

Flatten the chicken breasts, to do this I place the chicken between waxed paper and beat it with my rolling pin (yes, it is as much fun as it sounds). In a large Ziploc bag combine the spicy brown mustard, regular mustard, and honey; mix it around in the bag until well combines. Add the flattened chicken breasts to the bag and place in the refrigerator to marinade for 6-24 hours. After marinading the chicken place it in a skillet on medium-high heat to cook. When the chicken is done lay the bacon over it and sprinkle with cheese. Once the cheese is melted you can serve it!

I think I would like this on a bun :) I like pounding out chicken with a bottle of wine because once you've shaken it up, you have no other course of action to take but to open the cork and have a glass. Either way, cute blog!
