Well my birthday is coming up so I will be going out to eat with friends and family to celebrate BUT sometimes it's nice to stay home and save a little money.  One of our favorite restaurants is Outback Steakhouse and that is not a cheap option so I have tried a few menu items at home.  My favorite is Alice Springs Chicken and it is a recipe that is fairly easy to duplicate...enjoy and spend your saved money on a bottle of wine or a pack of beer to share with friends!

chicken breasts
seasoning of your choice (Outback using honey mustard, I use herbs and garlic)
cheese of your choice (I use cheddar)
mushrooms (lots)
bacon (2 or 3 pieces per chicken piece)

Prepare your bacon in a cast iron pan (or your choice of pan) and put it to the side.  Do not overcook because you will cook again.

Cook chicken in bacon grease with seasonings until done all the way through.

Lay chicken on an oven safe pan and heat oven to 400 so that cheeses will melt. 

Layer chicken, mushrooms, bacon and cheese for each piece.  Put in oven until the cheese melts to your liking.  ENJOY!
