Alice Spring Chicken (Outback Copycat)


  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • For Honey Mustard Marinade:
  • ½ cup Dijon mustard (preferably Grey Poupon brand)
  • ½ cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 
  • ½ teaspoon lemon juice
  • For Toppings:
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms (10-12 mushrooms) 
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese 
  • 1½ teaspoons vegetable oil
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste 
  • Dash of Paprika
  • Garnish: 2 teaspoons fresh parsley, minced


  1. For the Marinade: Prepare to use an electric mixer,  mix Dijon mustard, honey, 1 teaspoon oil, and lemon juice in a mixing bowl. Mix it for around half a minute
  2. Cover the chicken with a cling film and pound the chicken with a mullet to tenderize. Marinade the chicken breast with about ⅔ of the mixture in an airtight container in the fridge for about 2 hours or longer. Reserve the remaining ⅓ of marinade for later use in the fridge too.
  3. Cooking time: In a large enameled frying pan, heat an oil and sear the chicken for 3-4 minutes per side until golden brown. Remove the pan from fire and set aside.
  4. In another small pan, melt butter to sauté mushrooms. Set aside.
  5. If your skillet is non oven proof, just transfer the chicken breast in a baking dish. Brush some extra marinade on top of chicken (but set aside extra marinade for later) and season the chicken with salt, pepper, and a dash of paprika.
  6. On each chicken breast, place two pieces of cooked bacon stacked crosswise.
  7. Carefully cover each bacon breast with the sautéed mushrooms on top. Add ¼  cup of Monterey Jack cheese on top of each breast followed by ¼ cup of Cheddar.
  8. Preheat the oven to 190°C or 375°F.  Bake for around 7 to 10 minutes, or until the cheese is completely melted and bubbling.
  9. Before serving, top each chicken breast with a half-teaspoon of minced parsley. Add an extra honey mustard sauce in a small bowl on the side (for dipping sauce). Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Version 2

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to ½ inch thickness
Lawry’s Seasoning Salt (or poultry seasoning)
6 bacon slices
¼ cup regular mustard
⅓ cup honey
2 Tablespoon Mayonnaise
2 teaspoons dried onion flakes
1 cup sliced fresh mushroom
1 cups shredded Colby/Jack cheese
1 cup Béchamel sauce

1. Using a mullet, pound the chicken breast fillet meat to make it ½ inch thick. Season and rub the chicken breasts with Lawrys seasoning salt or any poultry seasoning. Cover and let it marinate inside the fridge for 30 minutes.

2. Prepare the bacon, fry it in the pan until slightly crisp (reserve bacon grease). Once cooked, transfer into a plate and set aside.

3. In the same pan, fry the chicken breast (or grill it for a smoky version) in the bacon grease for about 3-5 minutes per side and let it brown. Transfer the chicken in a dish or casserole (about 9″ × 13″). Set aside.

4. Prepare Honey Mustard: Combine mustard, honey, mayonnaise and dried onion flakes in a small bowl. Mix it well.

5. Spoon the Honey Mustard over each chicken and spread it out evenly. Layer the mushrooms,then followed by crumbled bacon, béchamel sauce and top it with shredded cheese.

6. Bake in the oven at 350°F or 180°C for about 30 minutes, or just until the chicken is done. (Don’t let the cheese burn, and cover it with a foil on top. Then remove foil on the last 5 minutes of baking).

7. Remove from the oven, garnish with chopped parsley. Serve and enjoy!
