- 4 skinless chicken breasts
- 1⁄2 cup fat-free mayonnaise
- 1⁄2 cup honey
- 8 slices turkey bacon
- ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons Grey Poupon Dijon Mustard
- 2 teaspoons white vinegar
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 cups shredded reduced-fat colby-monterey jack cheese
- 2 cups sliced mushrooms (10-12 mushrooms)
- 2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
- Combine the marinade ingredients in a medium bowl. 2 cups water, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke, 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, 1/4 teaspoon onion powder, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, and 1/4 teaspoon paprika.
- Add all 4 chicken breast to the marinade in a covered container or resealable plastic bag, and chill for 3 to 4 hours.
- Combine the mayonnaise, honey, Dijon mustard, and vinegar in a small bowl. Stir well until smooth. Chill.
- When chicken has marinated, preheat barbecue grill to high heat.
- As barbecue preheats, prepare turkey bacon by frying it in a skillet over medium heat until done. Remove the bacon from the skillet to a plate lined with paper, which helps soak up the excess fat. The bacon can sit here until it is time to assemble the dish.
- Spray a light coating of nonstick oil cooking spray over the surface of each chicken breast. Sprinkle both sides of each chicken breast with salt, pepper, and paprika, and then grill for 7 to 10 minutes on each side. Preheat oven to 375°F.
- As chicken grills, prepare mushrooms by heating up a medium skillet over medium/high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of butter to the pan. When the butter has melted, add the mushrooms along with a little salt and pepper. saute the mushrooms for 10-15 minutes or until the become cooked through and light brown. If the mushrooms finish before the chicken, just turn the heat to the lowest setting until you are ready to assemble the dish.
- When chicken is cooked, transfer the chicken breast fillets to a large baking dish. Slather the top surface of each breast with a generous portion of the honey mustard sauce. Stack two slices of bacon, crosswise, on top of each breast.
- Quarter the mushrooms and stack a portion on top of the bacon on each chicken breast. Carefully pour about 1/2 cup of the Colby/Monterrey Jack cheese blend over each of the chicken breasts.
- Bake chicken in the preheated oven for 7 to 12 minutes or until cheese is melted.
- Sprinkle each with about 1/2 teaspoon of fresh minced parsley.
- Serve with addition honey mustard sauce on the side.
This chicken was really good! We all love the Outback version and although this one isn"t exactly the same, it's awfully close. We butterflied each breast so they would cook quicker and they came out moist and tender. My daughter and I couldn't believe how great the chicken smelled when we took the lid off after marinating. We agreed that if it smelled that good RAW, it should be awesome once it was cooked and it definitely was! Thank you Carly!
