I had this yesterday at OutBack and it is fantastic! What a great idea! If you love the Alice Springs Chicken dish then you will LOVE this! I use Now This is Alice Springs Chicken for the base.
- 1 cup Dijon mustard
- 1 cup honey
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 4 -6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 2 cups sliced mushrooms
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 12 slices bacon, pre-cooked
- 3 cups shredded Mexican blend cheese
- With an electric mixer combine the mustard, honey, and 1 Tbsp oil, and lemon juice for 1 minute.
- Pour 1/2 mixture over chicken in a gallon ziplock to marinate in fridge 2-24 hours.
- Chill remaining marinade to serve with chicken.
- After marinating chicken, Put remaining oil in frying pan. Sear chicken on both sides until cooked thru.
- Transfer chicken to a pan and brush with marinade; keep warm.
- Meanwhile in frying pan add butter and saute mushrooms. Remove from the heat.
- Cut chicken into bite size pieces and line your ingredients up, this part will go quickly! Chicken, cheese, mushrooms and bacon.
- If you have a quesadilla maker get it heated up, otherwise, heat a frying pan and to medium heat and spread a little butter or non stick spray on the bottom.
- Prepare tortillas by spreading a little butter on the ousides.
- Place a tortilla, butter side down and add chicken, mushrooms, bacon and then the cheese but DO NOT OVERFILL. Place the other tortilla on top, butter side up. Flip (carefully) once bottom side is golden and do the same to the remaining side.
- Repeat until you are out of ingredients.
- Use the remaining honey mustard for dipping.
These were excellent. Everyone loved them. The marinate made the chicken very moist. The only changes we made were we grilled the chicken and after filling the shells heated them on our George Foreman grill without the butter. The kids are already asking me to make them again. Definitely a keeper.
I marinated my chicken overnight and cooked this last night. It is delicious! Everybody liked it and has requested it again. I loved the honey mustard sauce, it is just like what you get at the resturants. For the adults, we dressed it up with shredded lettuce and chopped tomato and a little sliced green onions. The kids liked it with sour cream instead of the honey mustard (it is a little spicey). Thank you for sharing this recipe! It was a treat, we felt like we were dining out.
