Grilled Malibu Chicken

Grilled Malibu Chicken is a delicious way to dress up grilled chicken. Serve it with a baked potato and a green salad for a nice Sunday dinner. It can also be served on a bun with fries for a tasty lunch. This Grilled Malibu Chicken is a much healthier version of the original (recipe HERE) that our family loves! Instead of being breaded and fried, the chicken is grilled making it a healthier version of the original. And we even have a delicious honey mustard yogurt dip to go along with it. I love this version because it has all the same wonderful flavors, but without the guilt.

What Is Malibu Chicken?

Although there are several variations to Malibu chicken recipes, the main points of this dish include chicken breast, topped with Swiss cheese and ham. It is usually served with a honey mustard dipping sauce. Many restaurants serve a Malibu chicken sandwich, which is a chicken breast topped with melted Swiss cheese and ham with a honey mustard spread.

Make It A Meal

This Grilled Malibu Chicken goes perfectly with our baked potato wedges (recipe HERE). It also makes an amazing lunch, just put in on a bun or sliced bread and use the honey mustard yogurt dip as a spread. Yum!

Chicken for Dinner

There are so many ways to cook up chicken for a great meal. Check out these other ideas if you’re looking to mix up your poultry fixings.

  • Chicken Coconut Curry is a warm, hearty meal layered with sweet and savory flavors. This tastes even better than a restaurant and is cheaper and easier to make.
  • Lemon Pepper Chicken is tangy, tender, and so tasty! Made with just four ingredients, it’s perfect for salads, pastas and sandwiches.
  • Homemade Chicken Pot Pie is the ultimate comfort food. Stuffed with tender chicken and veggies in a creamy sauce and topped with a homemade flaky crust, this is a favorite dish for a warm, cozy, family dinner.

    JUST AN FYI…. THE SIZZLER MALIBU SAUCE IS 4 PARTS MAYO TO 1 PART MUSTARD MIXED. IF YOU WANT THIS RECIPE TO BE A Z E R O CARB RECIPE- JUST GRILL THE CHICKEN WITHOUT MARINATING IT- STILL TOP WITH THE HAM & EXTRA CHEESE (PREFERABLY SWISS) AND DIP EVERY LOVELY BITE IN THE MALIBU SAUCE MENTIONED ABOVE. Z E R O CARBS !!!!!!!

  2. I am concerned that a lot of these recipes have sugar &/or processed foods in them. Does this mean they are still healthy, weight-loss meals?

    1. These meals are lower-calorie and substitutions for the high-calorie alternatives. You can take it a step further and cut out any sugar or processed foods that you deem unhealthy if you would like.

    Sizzler was always our family’s favorite place to eat and sadly there isn’t one close to us anymore. Tried this recipe and it is even better – and healthier – than theirs! Thank you! Would be super excited if you have any more Sizzler copycat recipes to share.

    1. So glad you liked it! We don’t have any other Sizzler recipes at the moment, do you have any requests?

        Many years ago they served a Santa Fe chicken dish which was a grilled chicken breast with Santa Fe seasonings and topped with a poblano? pepper and served with a small container of salsa on the side. I guess that it was a true Sizzler recipe. When Sizzler left our area the restaurant was purchased by an individual who kept the same type of recipes. Now that restaurant is closed, too.

        1. I loved the Sante Fe chicken and have been hoping and waiting for it to come back. What is considered to be Santa Fe seasoning?

    I can honestly say that every recipe I’ve tried of yours has been so delicious! This one didn’t disappoint either. Chicken had great flavor and my family all loved it. You ladies are amazing and your cookbook is my absolute favorite! Keep up the great work. (:
