This Outback Steakhouse Alice Springs Chicken recipe is a favorite restaurant-style dish that your family will enjoy. It is simple, easy to prepare, and does not take up any of your time in the kitchen.
The ingredients are ones you have in your pantry or readily available from your local supermarket. Thinking of dinner for the family, this is one your family will love, especially the kids.
However, if you are looking to maintain your current weight but need a good meal, this is it. You can steam your favorite veggies by the side to complete the meal and increase the fiber content in the recipe.
If the chicken breasts are frozen, ensure to thaw thoroughly before seasoning your chicken. You can leave them out on the kitchen counter overnight or in the morning if it will be served for dinner or lunch.
Try to use organic chicken from your local farmer’s market.
Do not add any extra cooking oil to the bacon fat when browning the chicken. It is also extra flavor on the chicken. However, if you do not want to use the bacon fat, substitute with a ¼ cup of extra virgin olive oil.
Add some spices if you like it hot. It is great for the metabolism. You can add some pepper flakes to the honey mustard sauce too.
If you do not have an oven, place the chicken in a microwave until the cheese melts completely
If you are watching your weight, use less salt, and add fresh herbs like thyme, rosemary to ramp up the flavor.
The corn syrup is optional if you like the tang of the mustard. Any kind of mustard is excellent; we love the grainy type for some texture.
You can change the cheese if you do not like jack/Colby but ensure you pick a cheese that melts.
