How to make Outback Steakhouse's Alice Springs Chicken at home!

My Aunt Anne & I were talking yesterday about recipes, since we both love, love, love to cook & bake.   She told me about a yummy chicken dish my cousin had made from Pinterest ~ Alice Springs Chicken.  It's a copycat version of Outback Steakhouse's famous dish.  I wanted to make it for dinner tonight but....I have been stuck at home for TWO loooooooong weeks with a broken van, so I knew I was going to have to try and make this with what is on hand.  No trip to the store possible this time. So.....

There were tons of recipes out there, most were very similar. So if you want the exact copy-cat one, just keep on googling.   This one is very similar, but I ended up making a few small changes and it was amazing. So without further ado, here's what I cooked using what I had to work with!

Alice Springs Chicken

2 large chicken breasts, season with salt & pepper
1/4 c dijon mustard,  1/4 c yellow mustard, 1/4 c honey mustard
1/4 c honey
2 Tbsp Duke's mayonnaise

(the original recipe also calls for sliced, sauteed mushrooms, so feel free to add those if you like them.  We don't!)

shredded sharp cheddar cheese
chopped parsley

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

                                               Mix the mustards, honey and mayo in a bowl.

                Place two chicken breasts in a bowl, add about 1/2 the mustard mixture as a marinade.

  Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.  Let chicken marinate in the fridge while you cook the bacon.....

                   Fry the bacon, then drain on paper towels.  Reserve some of the grease in the pan.

                                                  Use same pan to cook the chicken breasts.

Grease a baking dish.  Place chicken in dish.  Arrange two slices of bacon criss crossed over chicken.  Top with (mushrooms if you used them), shredded cheese, then drizzle with the reserved marinade and sprinkle with some parsley.

                         Bake for about 10-15 minutes til everything is crispy and bubbly and yummmmmo!

We had ours with loaded mashed potatoes *Idahoan loaded mashed potatoes* ~ I'd have preferred a good baked potato, but didn't have any, so this was the next best thing.

I wondered if the mustard would overpower the sauce, but surprisingly, it didn't. It was a delicious dinner, and my 9 year old LOVED it.  We'll be having this regularly!  Hope you try it! Please leave a comment and let me know what you thought of it, if you make this!
