This is my simple version of Outback Steakhouse’s Alice Springs Chicken except without mushrooms. Cheesy Chicken with a seriously amazing homemade Honey Mustard sauce is a dinnertime winner!
This sauce is a crowd pleaser… full of flavor and the perfect compliment to a well-seasoned chicken breast. I highly recommend making this cheesy chicken recipe in a cast iron skillet or iron skillet or enamel fry pan. Both are oven safe.
How to Make Cheesy Chicken
One thing to note in this cheesy chicken recipe is timing; the chicken does need to marinate, so I would plan on preparing the Honey Mustard Marinade in the morning or early afternoon. If you need to you can also prepare the marinade the night before and marinate overnight.
For the cheesy chicken, I chose to use only Monterey Jack cheese but you can also add cheddar.
What can I serve with this cheesy chicken recipe?
I am telling you… this Cheesy Bacon Chicken with Mustard Sauce is AHmazing. I like to serve this chicken recipe with green beans and then pour some of the sauce over the beans as well. You could also try this cheesy chicken recipe with Browned Butter Brussel Sprouts.
You can also use a store-bought Honey Mustard dressing to save time. 🙂
