Chicken Bacon Mushroom Recipe (VIDEO)

This Chicken Bacon Mushroom is a recipe you must try! Chicken breast topped with bacon, mushrooms, and cheese then 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, or the copycat Chicken Shrimp Scampi and another favorite Chicken Marsala.

Chicken with bacon and mushrooms is such a great combination. The chicken breasts are seasoned and sauteed until crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. The sauteed mushrooms, bacon and cheese are added to the chicken and completely smothered in a honey mustard sauce. Once baked, the cheese melts and the sauce penetrates into the chicken and every bite is pure heaven.

Enjoy the chicken with a side of mashed potatoes or baked rice.

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.

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

tips how to make chicken bacon mushroom recipe-

  • 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. Or, you can also just use your favorite seasoning.
  • 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.

This has to be one of our favorite recipes the whole family enjoys. If your kids don’t like mushrooms, leave them out on their chicken (and of course load the mushrooms on your side).
