Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes

The chicken comes out succulent and juicy and the bacon, cheese and honey mustard sauce add so much incredible flavor. It’s just like the Alice Springs bacon at Outback Steakhouse.


  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
  • ½ teaspoon McCormick Season All seasoning
  • 3 cups shredded Colby Jack cheese
  • 6 bacon strips, fried until crisp and halved across the middle
  • Cooking oil, as needed


  • ½ cup prepared mustard
  • ¼ cup light corn syrup
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise


  1. Rub Season All seasoning over the chicken and let it sit in the refrigerator for an hour.
  2. Fry the bacon while the chicken is marinating and discard the grease.
  3. Add a small amount of oil to a cast iron skillet and pan fry the chicken until only just cooked through and slightly golden.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  5. Top the chicken breasts with mushrooms, bacon and enough shredded cheese to completely cover.
  6. Bake for a few minutes until the cheese has melted, then serve sprinkled with parsley and with the honey mustard sauce on the side.

Can You Make It Ahead?

This dish is juicier and more flavorful when made and served fresh, so it’s not really a make-ahead dish.

Storage Instructions:

Leftovers will keep for up to 3 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator and can be warmed back up in the microwave or the oven.

Variations and Substitutions:

It’s your choice whether to use canned or fresh mushrooms. You can sub your favorite kind of shredded cheese for the Colby Jack. If you find the honey mustard sauce too sweet you can reduce the amount of light corn syrup used. And if you don’t have a cast iron skillet, use a regular pan for cooking the chicken on the stove and then transfer it onto a baking sheet for the oven.
