Bacon Mushroom Chicken (VIDEO)

Bacon Mushroom Chicken is a recipe you must try! Chicken breast topped with bacon, mushrooms, cheese and smothered in a homemade honey mustard sauce. This easy dinner will become a favorite for kids and adults alike.

We really enjoy chicken recipes including the classic Chicken Parmesan, the Chicken Shrimp Scampi and another favorite, the Ham and Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast.

Chicken mushroom is such a great combination. When you add bacon to chicken with cheese and a homemade honey mustard sauce, you have yourself a winner recipe. The cheese melts and the smothered sauce penetrates into the chicken and every bite is scrumptious and pure heaven.

Copycat Alice Springs Chicken-

This chicken was inspired by the popular Alice Springs Chicken at Outback Steakhouse. It’s a copycat recipe and in my opinion tastes much better for a fraction of the price.

Tools we used to make this recipe; meat mallet, grater, skillet, casserole dish.

Step by step on how to make bacon mushroom chicken with honey mustard sauce.


  • If you like Vegeta, you can substitute it for Lawry’s seasoning. We absolutely love Vegeta so that’s what I often use instead of Lawry’s.
  • For the mushroom lovers, you can add more mushrooms than the indicated amount. You know, because loaded mushrooms are always a great idea.
  • I prefer Colby Jack cheese in this recipe. However,  Mexican four cheese, baby swiss or even Mozzarella may be used if that’s all you have on hand.
  • Either portabella mushrooms or regular white mushrooms may be used for this recipe.
  • Enjoy with a side of mashed potatoes or rice.
