Some people may not know what off-the-grid or off-grid means, so here it is --- The term off-the-grid or off-grid refers to living in a self-sufficient manner without reliance on one or more public utilities.

Off-grid living is no longer a one room log cabin in the woods. It's energy independency. You don't have to rely on utility companies, you create your own power. Today, there are more than 180,000 off-grid homes in the US.

Aussie Chicken...

58 degrees - 3:30 pm - beautiful day...

I am always looking for new recipes to try and ways to “spice up” plain old chicken breasts and this one is awesome!  This recipe is very similar to a chicken dish served at a local well-known restaurant, and a friend of mine was kind enough to share it.

~Aussie Chicken~
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to ½ inch thickness
Seasoning salt
6 slices bacon, cut in half
¼ cup regular mustard
1/3 cup honey
2 Tbsp mayonnaise
1/2 tsp dried onion flakes
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
2 cups shredded Colby Jack Cheese

Sprinkle and rub the chicken breasts with seasoning salt.  Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook bacon in a large skillet until crisp.  Remove bacon (do not discard grease).  In a small bowl, mix the mustard, honey, mayo and dried onion flakes. 

Sauté chicken in the bacon grease for 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until browned.  Move chicken to a 9x13 pan.

Apply the honey mustard to each breast, then layer with mushrooms, bacon, and shredded cheese.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes, or until cheese is melted and chicken is done. 

Serve with honey mustard sauce.
~Honey Mustard Sauce~
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp regular yellow mustard
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1/4cup honey
1 Tbsp dried onion flakes
1/2 Tbsp lemon juice

Mix the mayo, mustards, honey, onion flakes and lemon juice together in a bowl.  Cover and chill in refrigerator overnight.  Serve with chicken.

--- Enjoy!
