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.

  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.

  2. 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!

    • 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!” 😱
