Chicken Delight

Last evening I tried another new recipe and it is definitely making it's way into my keeper file. Delicious as a word to describe it doesn't quite do it justice. I've had many delicious things already and this has got to be close to the top.
Chicken Delight

In a small bowl combine:
½ cup prepared mustard
½ cup honey
1½ tsp vegetable oil
½ tsp lemon juice

Pour ½ cup of honey mustard mixture into a large resealable bag. Add:
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

Set remaining marinade aside until later.

Seal bag and refrigerate for two hours.
Drain and discard marinade from chicken.
In a large skillet over medium heat brown chicken on both sides in:
1 Tbsp vegetable oil

Sprinkle with:
½ tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
½ tsp paprika

Place chicken into greased 9x13 cake pan.

In your skillet which still has a little vegetable oil in it add:
2 Tbsp butter
1½ cup sliced mushrooms
Saute mushrooms until tender.

Spoon remaining marinade over chicken. Top with:
1½ cup shredded Montery Jack cheese
Sauted mushrooms
8 partially cooked bacon strips

Place the bacon strips in a crisscross pattern on chicken.

Bake, uncovered, at 375º for 20-25 minutes.

Serve and enjoy!


  1. YUMMMMM - That almost looks like something from Outback Steakhouse, only yours looks better! Thanks for the great recipe - the Russos would scarf that down in no time. ;)

  2. Being a vegetarian that meal doesn't appeal to me. I know a few people who would probably really enjoy it though.

  3. Wow, that looks tasty! I think this meal will go in next weeks planning for us. :-)
    I sometimes make a honey-mustard chicken dish, but I had not thought to put bacon in it.

  4. This looks yummy. I think I could even get my husband to try it as long as he doesn't find out about the honey mustard marinade!

  5. Oh, my goodness,that does sound like a winner.

  6. We had chicken and dumplings last night; we're going out for supper tonight, but tomorrow night, we're having Chicken Delight!!! Thanks!

  7. YUMMMMMY! Looks and sounds delicious!

  9. I'll have to try this soon. We love chicken. bacon, cheese, and mushrooms. combine all four and it has got to be a winner!

    Thanks for sharing.
