Description

Better than its predecessor (which you’ll find at Outback Steakhouse) and I’ve added a twist!

Ingredients

  • 6 strips Bacon
  • 1 Tablespoon Seasoned Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 4 whole Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • 8 ounces, weight Mushrooms, Sliced
  • 1 cup Salsa
  • 1 cup Cheddar Or Colby Jack Cheese, Shredded

Preparation

Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat. When it’s nice and crispy remove it from the skillet and put it onto a paper towel lined plate. Keep 2 tablespoons of the grease in the skillet but discard the rest.

Combine all the spices in a small bowl then season the chicken on both sides with the spice mixture.

Increase heat on the skillet to medium high. Cook chicken in the reserved grease until cooked through, which will take roughly 5-6 minutes per side depending on the thickness of your chicken breasts. Remove chicken from the pan, put it onto a plate and tent with foil to keep warm.

In same skillet, saute mushrooms for 2 minutes then remove them from the pan.

Place chicken back in skillet and top with mushrooms, bacon (2 strips per), salsa and cheese. Reduce heat to low and cover the skillet. Allow everything to melt together for about 2-3 minutes.

I also made it as written, and we all (including my picky 2-year old) loved it! It tastes just like restaurant-quality, and we paired it with Mexican rice. Thanks so much for sharing this great recipe! It’s going in the keeper pile!

I made a lot of modifications (only because I didn’t have everything in this recipe) but I attribute the awesomeness of the dish to Jenn!
I used chicken quarters (with bone) instead of chicken breast. I added grilled onions and spinach instead of mushrooms. Took longer but the chicken was juicy, flavorful and filling!
