A lot better than I used to...

Sherry’s Aussie Chicken

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/2 inch thickness (sometimes it’s easier to filet them, instead)
  • seasoning salt
  • 6 slices bacon, cut in half (What is it with me and all the bacon recipes this week?!)
  • ¼ cup regular mustard
  • ¼ to 1/3 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons 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.*** Saute chicken in the bacon grease for 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until browned.  Move chicken to a 9×13 pan.
In a small bowl, mix the mustard, honey, mayo and dried onion flakes.  Apply the honey mustard to each breast, then layer with mushrooms, bacon, and shredded cheese.
Bake in a 350° oven for 30 minutes, or until cheese is melted and chicken is done.  (Be sure to cut into a breast to see that it is fully cooked before serving to guests who will find raw meat in their main dish.  Ask me how I know…)
Serve with honey mustard sauce.

Even looking at this I am thinking yum.  And OH MY GOSH WAS IT!!!  I have never ordered this from "Out Back,"  the thought of it sounds tempting now.  But I am sure that IF I do it will not taste the same.  

Let me tell you something different than the experience in cooking, lets talk about grocery shopping...I have been wanting to go to Aldie for sometime, not that I haven't been there before, But I wanted to make a list and shop there, if I could get it (the one near me is very small).
