Bacon Mushroom Chicken

Total Time

Prep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min.

Makes

2 servings

“My brother told me this was the best chicken he had ever tasted,” writes Kara Cook from Elk Ridge, Utah, “and it’s one of my very favorites, too. “Not only is it easy to prepare, but it also looks elegant, tastes spectacular, and never fails to bring raves when I serve it to guests.” TIP: Try using any leftover mozzarella cheese to dress up salads, sprinkle on cups of hot chili or make mini pizzas.

Ingredients

  • 2 bacon strips, halved
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried minced onion
  • 1/4 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/3 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels; set aside. Flatten chicken to 1/2-in. thickness; sprinkle both sides with seasoned salt. Brown in bacon drippings. Transfer to a 1-qt. baking dish coated with cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the honey, mustard, mayonnaise, corn syrup and onion; spread 1/4 cup over chicken. Top with bacon and mushrooms. Sprinkle with cheese.
  3. Cover and bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Serve with remaining honey mixture.

    Has anyone tried this with cheddar cheese? That's what I have on hand, wondered if it might give it a good flavor. Sounds like a great recipe, can't wait to try this!

    It was delicious though I did things a bit different. I used fresh onion and sautéed that with the mushrooms in the bacon grease and after pouring the sauce over the chicken I topped it with the mushrooms and onions. It turned out amazing and my husband loved it!
