The Best Chicken of Your Life.

Happy Monday friends. I'm snuggled by the fire on this frigid morning, watching our new little kitten, Penelope, sleep as close as she can to the fireplace. I'll tell you all about her soon, we hope she becomes a little less shy in the next few days.

What I really came to tell you today was this amazing, phenomenal chicken that BM made on Friday evening. It's a party in your mouth. A really awesome party.

I'm a little bummed that I didn't discover this recipe myself. BM has a habit of looking at what we have in the fridge and googling those ingredients to try and make a recipe, where I prefer to find a recipe and then go get the ingredients! This recipe is called "Aussie Chicken", and you should probably make it for dinner tonight. 

Here is what you'll need:

4 Skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - pounded to 1/2 inch thickness
2 Teaspoons seasoning salt
6 slices bacon, cut in half
1/2 cup yellow mustard
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms (BM took these out for me!)
2 cups shredded colby-monterey Jack cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley 

I don't have an ingredients photo...well..because I didn't make it :) This is a benefit of working nights, BM gets to do the cooking! (sometimes)

Here is what you do:
1. Rub the chicken breasts with seasoning salt, cover and refrigerate for 30 mins.

2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place bacon in large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until crisp, set aside. 

3. In a medium bowl, combine the mustard, honey, corn syrum, mayonnaise, and dried onion flakes. Remove half of sauce, cover and refrigerate to serve later. 

4. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Place breasts in the skillet and saute for 3-5 mins per side, or until browned. Remove from skillet and place the breasts into a baking dish. Apply the honey mustard sauce to each breast, then layer each with mushrooms and bacon. Sprinkle to top with shredded cheese. 

5. Bake in preheated oven for 15 mins, or until cheese is melted and chicken juices run clear. Garnish with parsley and serve with the reserved honey mustard sauce. 

Here is what you get:
A happy wife & ...

Who doesn't love a good honey mustard sauce?
This chicken is seriously so dang good, I could eat 3x a week.

Also, stay tuned to hear about this fur ball that we welcomed into our home yesterday! We are most certainly in love. 

Ok, now go to the grocery store, get those ingredients..and make this chicken tonight!
You will not regret it!
