Alice Springs Chicken Recipe

Alice Springs Chicken is a popular dish that originated from the Outback Steakhouse chain. It typically consists of grilled chicken breast topped with mushrooms, bacon, melted cheese, and a honey mustard sauce. Here’s a simple recipe for making Alice Springs Chicken at home:


For the Chicken:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil for grilling

For the Honey Mustard Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard

For the Toppings:

  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 8 slices cooked bacon
  • 1 cup shredded Colby-Jack cheese (or your favorite cheese blend)
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat your grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.
  2. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Brush each side with olive oil.
  3. Grill the chicken breasts for about 6-7 minutes per side or until fully cooked (internal temperature of 165°F or 74°C). Cooking times may vary depending on the thickness of the chicken breasts.
  4. While the chicken is cooking, prepare the honey mustard sauce. In a small bowl, whisk together Dijon mustard, honey, mayonnaise, and yellow mustard until well combined. Adjust the ingredients to taste.
  5. In a separate pan, sauté the sliced mushrooms until they are tender.
  6. Once the chicken is cooked, place it on a baking sheet or oven-safe dish. Spread a layer of honey mustard sauce over each chicken breast.
  7. Top each chicken breast with sautéed mushrooms, followed by slices of bacon. Finally, sprinkle shredded cheese over the toppings.
  8. Broil the chicken in the oven until the cheese is melted and bubbly, usually for 2-3 minutes. Keep a close eye to prevent burning.
  9. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley if desired.
  10. Serve the Alice Springs Chicken hot, and consider pairing it with your favorite side dishes like mashed potatoes, vegetables, or a salad.
