Alice Springs Chicken

We had some friends over for dinner they requested the recipe so here it is! Its mighty tasty!

This is an out back copy i got the recipe from here....but changed it up very slightly and made it easier to understand :)

Its super easy first marinade the 4 chicken breasts over night make sure they are not too thick! I just mine in half width wise to make them thinner

To make the marinade mix
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup dijon mustard
1 tes oil
1 tes lemon juice

Pour 2./3 marinade over chicken save the rest and chill in the fridge ( use for dipping when you eat :))

4 Chicken Breasts
2 cups sliced mushrooms
8 slices cooked bacon
1/2 cup sliced onion
1 tbs garlic
1 tbs butter
1 tbs oil
1 cup montery Jack Cheese
1 cup Sharp Cheaper Cheese

After chicken is done marinating season with salt pepper and paprika heat oil in a large skillet (if it can go in the oven even better!)
Preheat oven to 375
Sear chicken on all sides.  Be careful not to cook for too long about 2-4 minutes per side.  Once chicken has a good sear take off heat.
While chicken is cooking melt butter and saute onions mushrooms and garlic
when everything is done layer chicken with bacon mushroom mix and top with 1/4 cup of each cheese.  cook 20-25min. 

Serve with sauce on side to dip!

**note i hate mustard but love this! ( i do not use the sauce to dip at the end) There is not a strong mustard flavor after it cooks, its just SO tasty! :

We also served Loaded Mashed Potatos
no real recipe here, but make some mashed potatos and milk, butter, sour cream, green onions, cheese and bacon :) oh so yummy with this meal!I love to put the sauce from the chicken on the potatos. 

Now i want it to be lunch time so i can go eat these leftovers!

PS (yes this meal has cheese um yeah dont know how that works into my resolution)
