Aussie Chicken

After dining at a popular Australian-themed restaurant several years ago, I scoured the Internet to find a similar recipe to the luscious chicken dish I had ordered and eaten with delight. With honey, cheese, mushrooms, and bacon, I had never eaten anything like it. It is easy to prepare and mixes up a really different dance of unusual flavors. This recipe is part of the Allrecipes Tried and True Favorites cookbook.

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/2 inch thickness
  • 2 teaspoons seasoning salt
  • 6 slices bacon, cut in half
  • 1/2 cup prepared mustard
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 2 cups shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Rub the chicken breasts with the seasoning salt, cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until crisp. Set aside. In a medium bowl, combine the mustard, honey, corn syrup, mayonnaise and dried onion flakes. Remove half of sauce, cover and refrigerate to serve later. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place the breasts in the skillet and sauté for 3 – 5 minutes per side, or until browned. Remove from skillet and place the breasts into a 9 x 13 baking dish. Apply the honey mustard sauce to each breast, then layer each breast with mushrooms and bacon. Sprinkle top with shredded cheese. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and chicken juices run clear. Garnish with parsley and serve with the reserved honey mustard sauce.
