Smothered Honey Mustard Chicken
This is definitely one of the best chicken breast recipes I have ever made! Smothered with bacon, mushrooms and the homemade honey mustard made this dish fabulous! The chicken was easy to prepare and turned out so moist! My husband must have told me five times how good it was as he was eating it, so it looks like I’ll be making this again!
Source: I adapted this recipe from a recipe by Annie Bonham. This recipe is supposed to taste like Outback Steakhouses Alice Springs Chicken.
Pound the chicken breasts to about
1/2” thick. Sprinkle the chicken with the
seasoned salt, cover and refrigerate for about
30 minutes. Meanwhile cook the bacon
until crisp, saving the grease. Place
cooked bacon on a paper towel and
crumble when cool.
In a small bowl, mix the honey mustard
ingredients, whisking until combined.
Spray a 9″ x 13″ baking dish with cooking spray.
Heat up the bacon grease over medium
heat. Add chicken and cook for about
five minutes on each side.
Place chicken into the baking dish.
Pour honey mustard over top of the chicken.
Place the cooked bacon pieces on top.
Place the mushrooms on top next.
Sprinkle cheese over all of it.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree
oven for 30 minutes.
Using a spatula, place chicken
on a plate and serve.

Hi there, Diane. Hope all is well. Been sober since 9/12. Not easy. A bizarre schizophrenic with narcissistic personality disorder (need an official diagnosis) has come out. So far, no one has taken me out (that’s paranoia). I wrote off my family because they lost patience with me, esp my religious sister, who does feel normally and, unfortunately, judges me morally. I’ve started over again with a church’s support and therapy and a new antipsychotic. My ex-psychiatrist lost his patience and started name-calling. It wasn’t my fault. I drank as heavily as I did in order to feel emotions like a normal person. Well anyway, the help of women motivates me much better than that of men, usually. Sensitive men do exist, and also insensitive women. But the rule is that women are far more sympathetic and just plain fun to be around! Thanks for reading this. It’s 4:37am and pitch black night. The med probably causing insomnia. Looking ahead to daylight. The sun for me symbolizes the truth of life. It’s the only religion I need. Sorry for rambling. Enjoy your own dishes, too.
Wow congratulations on being sober and keep it up! Glad you have your religion!
Did you use my idea in my last comment? LOL XD!
What was it?
Good stuff we use it a lot where I live.
I love the combination of honey mustard and bacon, and of course the melted gooey cheese. Looks delicious.
I agree! Do you know I’m not crazy about mustard and have never tried honey mustard let alone cooked with it! Big mistake it was amazing!!!
Loved your tasty recipe
Looks great, can’t wait to try it.
Enjoy! Thank you!
I am anxious to try this
It is full of flavor! Enjoy!!
That really looks amazing!
Oh my! That looks so good!
It turned out better than I could have hoped for! I’m not a lover of white meat and this was amazing!
It looks like good 🙂
Thanks for sharing!
I had chicken fingers the other day with honey mustard sauce as a side dip and was in heaven. This recipe sounds terrific!
This looks amazing! I love the sweet/tang combination of honey and mustard. Thanks for posting this!
Thank you Dorothy! It serious was so delicious!
I will definitely try this one (always looking for something else to do with the chicken…).
You had me with chicken, mushrooms and bacon, a winning combination.I’ll have to try it with the honey mustard sauce, never had that before. Do you use the bottled American style mustard? And to top it off with cheese – yum!
Yes it is just plain yellow mustard. I am not a big fan of mustard but this was amazing! Yes top it off with cheese.
You knocked it out of the park again Diane! Seriously, my mouth is watering! Hugs, C
Awwww thank you Cheryl!💕
I mean, when you add bacon to anything, does it stand a chance of not being delicious?? 😉
Heck no! We had BLT’s for dinner tonight, I’m so addicted. I asked my 7 year old grandson if he wanted one, he said no just a bacon sandwich. Offered to put turkey with it, nope. Verified he wanted it toasted, nope. He said “Grandma, I want bacon on bread with ketchup! You always put ketchup with meat!” 😱
Oh my goodness! Quite the gourmand, isn’t he? Haha. 🙂 Cuteness.
