Recipe Copycat - Alice Springs Chicken

Hello Everyone! I have been traveling on and off for the last few weeks and am finally home for a while now. Hopefully I'll be able to get back in the swing of things and get some projects done soon. But for now, I'm going to share a recipe copycat with you.

I used to be a server at Outback Steakhouse. I love their food, and working there for over two years did not change my mind. It actually just made my love for the food grow. Now, this is not a healthy recipe, so if you're looking for a healthy dinner idea, look elsewhere.

Here's the inspiration:

This entree is a delicious mix of chicken, honey mustard, mushrooms, bacon and lots of cheese. In short: so good.

I've made variations of this dish a few times since discovering this wonderful combo, and there are a few ways you can change it up to fit your specific tastes.

Here's what you need:
Chicken breasts
Cheese, kind of your choosing (shredded or sliced)
Honey Mustard or Honey Mustard Dressing
Mushrooms or onions, cooked (optional)

First, season and cook the chicken breast.

Next, place the chicken breasts on a baking sheet and preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Put some honey mustard on the chicken breast, then add the mushrooms or onions, stack the bacon on top and then add the cheese. 

This time I used onions because I didn't have mushrooms. I also used deli sliced pepper jack cheese instead of shredded colby jack. I love me some pepper jack cheese. Put the combo in the oven for 10-15 minutes until the cheese is all melted.

Serve with honey mustard and add asparagus and you have...

The asparagus makes it healthier than the Outback version, and I don't use as much cheese. Seriously, this is so good!

Hope you're having a lovely week!
