Alice Springs Chicken is the first thing I tried at Outback and I fell in love. I knew I had to duplicate the recipe! I know this chicken looks like a cheesy, bacon-y, hot mess… and it is.
You will love our Alice Springs Chicken! The honey mustard marinade is so good, be sure to make extra so that you can reserve some for dipping the chicken in when you serve it. You are going to really like all the cheese, bacon, mushroom, and honey mustard flavors infused together and your family will love it too. You simply can’t go wrong with this chicken.
If you would like to grill the chicken instead of pan-fry it… do it. It tastes awesome that way too! It will taste best if, after marinating, you bring the chicken to room temperature before grilling. Then grill over medium-high heat for about 6 to 7 minutes on each side- only turning once. Then add the mushrooms, bacon, and cheese and bake as directed in the recipe.
We made our Alice Springs Chicken on KSL Studio 5 in Utah the year we released our cookbook. It was a HIT with Darin, one of the hosts of the show. He helped me put it all together– super easy! After the show we put it behind the scenes for the crew to try and they devoured it. Everyone raved about how good it was. This recipe is one of the 175 that we featured in our first COOKBOOK. We picked our very favorite recipes for our book, so that should tell you something about how much we like this chicken.
This recipe is really good with our Potato Wedges or Parmesan Baked Potato Halves as a side dish. And for something a little on the lighter side, try it with our Berry Salad and Strawberry Balsamic Dressing.
