Outback Steakhouse’s Alice Springs Chicken

Easter Sunday was huge in my home this year.  It was the first Sunday in a month that I got the privilege and opportunity to sit down with my handsome husband at the dinner table.  I got to hear his jokes and witty comments and see him in a much healthier state than I had seen him.  It was wonderful.  Because my husband can’t travel much or go many places because of his health, my family came up to visit us.  I was in charge of the main course, a side dish, and dessert.  This dinner, my husband marked down as a “hubby favorite”, and believe me it was DELICIOUS!- and to him I am sure it was super phenomenal because he had been living on hospital food for a few weeks :)  My mom couldn’t stop raving about how much she loved this meal because it is her favorite thing to order at Outback Steakhouse, and now she could make it at home!  Try it out! You are going to love it!

Recipe from: The Finer Things in Life

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/2 inch thickness
seasoning salt
6 slices bacon, cut in half
1/4 cup mustard
1/3 cup honey
2 tablespoons mayo
1/2 tablespoon dried onion flakes
1 tablespoon cooking oil
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.  Cook the bacon in a large skillet until crisp.
In a small bowl, mix the mustard, honey, mayo and dried onion flakes.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Place chicken in the skillet and saute for 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until browned.  Move chicken to an 11×7 inch or 9×9 inch pan.
Apply the honey mustard to each breast, then layer with mushrooms, bacon, and shredded cheese.
Bake in a 350° oven for 20-25 minutes, or until cheese is melted and chicken is done.

    Hi, when you say 'seasoning salt' what is that please? Obviously not regular salt! Is it like those jars of 'seasoning for chicken' or something? would really like to try this

    1. jamie

      i think it means like lawrys seasoning salt. i have to watch my salt intake so i used mrs. dash *salt free8 seasoning salt. it turned out yummy

    I worked at Outback for 5 years (and could still eat their food every single day!) and this recipe is pretty much dead on! It also goes very well in a quesadilla - as one of their apps is an Alice Springs Chicken Quesadilla. Looks delicious!

    If it's what I think she is talking about, the seasoning salt is like a red tinted container by seasonings and its called Lawrys seasoned salt. See link below :)http://www.lawrys.com/Products/Spice-Blends/Seasoned-Salt.aspx

    I have only eaten there once many years ago, but it looks incredible! It reminds me of Applebee's Smothered Chicken which I love. Thanks!

    You just reminded me that I have a good gift card to go to that restaurant. I need to make good use of it!!!

    I've been to Outback Steakhouse and haven't had this - must try it next time I go there. On the other hand, I've also been to Alice Springs itself in the Outback when I went to Australia but didn't have this there either :). Looks delicious.

    That is one of my favorite dishes at OB, I had no idea it had mustard and honey! Thank you for the recipe, your hubby has great taste!Carol

      It says honey mustard in the description of the item in the menu.
      I don't really like mayo...think we could just make it with the honey mustard?

    I haven't been to Outback in yeeeears, but this sounds easy and delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe. It's nice to hear that you had a happy Easter dinner with your hubby too.

    I am also in heaven with these recipes. My husband jokes that you can wrap bacon around anything and it will become his favorite. LOL We don't go to outback much but these recipes will end up on my table this week for sure.
