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.
TIPS on HOW to MAKE BACON MUSHROOM CHICKEN:
- 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.
