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!



Pound the chicken breasts to about 1/2” thick.

Sprinkle the chicken with Lawry’s, 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.

I have a supply of bacon in my freezer already cooked up and I always have filtered bacon grease in my refrigerator.

So I will be skipping this step.


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.

  1. 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.
