Alice Springs Chicken

Looking for another way to use up those chicken breasts that is sure to please everyone? Alice Springs Chicken is a popular menu item at Outback Steakhouse and this copycat version is pretty easy to prepare. Made with chicken, honey mustard sauce, sauteed mushrooms, turkey bacon and cheese. Yum!



I used this G Hughes Sugar Free Honey Mustard Sauce that is absolutely delicious and counts as 1 Condiment for 2 tbsp on our health program! Only 1 g of Carbs per 2 tbsp!


Start off by marinating the chicken in honey mustard sauce for a few hours and then cook it in a skillet. If you prefer, you can also bake or grill the chicken and then finish it off on the oven.


Top the chicken with additional honey mustard sauce, sauteed mushrooms, pieces of turkey bacon, and cheese. Place it back in the oven for about 15 min.


I served it with this Cauliflower Risotto Medley to complete a delicious Lean and Green meal. If you want to avoid the crowds and just don't feel like dining out, stay home and try this tasty dish!
