Sizzler Malibu Chicken

This Sizzler Malibu Chicken takes me right back to my childhood. Our dad would take us to Sizzler on special occasions, and this crisp chicken dinner is what we always ordered. As kids, it was a special treat to eat at Sizzler, however as adults it now takes us some convincing to go. I know now that the reason we loved Sizzler so much was because it was something special we shared with our father, not necessarily the food. So nowadays we make this fresh, yummy chicken dish and invite our dad over to our house. Best of both worlds!

A Homemade Version of a Sizzler Classic

  • This version of the Sizzler Malibu Chicken is so delicious! For starters, we don’t use frozen chicken patties. It’s so easy to make your own breaded chicken with some Panko breadcrumbs, eggs and seasonings. Plus, this chicken is baked, not fried, so you can really keep the calories down with this recipe. It still comes out crispy on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside. Perfection!
  • The Creole mustard sauce is Emily’s creation that she uses for Cap’n Crunch Chicken. Sweet honey, spicy Dijon mustard yellow mustard and mayo gives this sauce a unique sweet flavor that tastes so much better than the plain mayo-mustard sauce that Sizzler uses. 
  • I like to use deli black forest ham, thinly sliced and purchased from my local meat counter. Any kind of ham will work great for this recipe.
  • Top this chicken dish with a slice or two (or three, who’s counting?) of tangy Swiss cheese. It melts slightly over the ham and chicken and tastes absolutely scrumptious!
  • Malibu chicken tastes so good the next day, sliced up on a bun for a sandwich. Just add some lettuce and tomatoes and slice the chicken into strips. So good!

    1. I’m sorry it turned out soggy for you! Did you use Panko bread crumbs and turn the chicken breasts over during the baking time? I’ve never had this problem.

  1. Here in OZ in the 90s all of us went to sizzler,I always ordered Malibu and habarchi chicken, it was the Malibu mustard and mayo sauce I couldn’t get enough of, make this sauce,mayo some honey if you want but just add American mustard until you get the right tang and flavor,use your favorite cheese and don’t skimp on the ham, some of the sauce recipes with a lot of Dijon are real tounge pickles ,just use pre crumbed chicken and it’s fine,but the dipping sauce makes it
