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.
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to ½ inch thickness
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
