This recipe is a gem I discovered from a website called www.amysfinerthings.com. I adapted it slightly. It is one of the best chicken dishes I have made in a long time. I hope you try it and love it as much as I did. Sooooooo delicious!
Sherry’s Aussie Chicken (Like Alice Springs Chicken from Outback Restaurant)
8 boneless skinless chicken tenders
seasoning salt or you can use salt and pepper to season the chicken
6 slices bacon, cut in half
4 Tablespoons Honey Mustard Dressing (I used Great Value Honey Mustard Dressing and Dip)
2 teaspoons dried onion flakes
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
2 cups shredded Colby/Jack cheese, grated
Cook bacon in a large skillet until crisp. Remove bacon. Do not discard grease. Sauté the seasoned chicken in the bacon grease for 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until browned. Move chicken to a 9×13 pan.
In a small bowl, mix the honey mustard and dried onion flakes. Apply the honey mustard to each breast, then layer with mushrooms, bacon, and shredded cheese.
Bake in a 350° oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until cheese is melted and chicken is done. If you use whole chicken breasts instead of chicken tenders, you may need to cook longer.
Serve with honey mustard sauce.
~You can also make your own honey mustard sauce by using the following recipe:
¼ cup regular mustard (French’s or Grey Poupon, whatever you have)
¼ to 1/3 cup honey
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
