Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 8 oz fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 8 oz mozzarella cheese

Honey Mustard Sauce

  • ¼ cup light mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup honey dijon mustard

Instructions

  • Poke chicken breasts with a fork a few times, then place in a Ziploc with Worcestershire sauce. Refrigerate for at least one hour (or overnight).
  • While the chicken marinates, start working on your other ingredients.
  • Fry four slices of bacon over medium heat until they reach desired crispiness. When finished, remove the bacon from the pan and place it on a paper towel.
  • Meanwhile, slice your onion and cut up your mushrooms, then sautee over medium heat. (Use a separate pan from the bacon.)
  • Sautee the chicken in the same pan you used to cook the bacon. Cover with a lid to keep your meat extra juicy!
  • Cook the chicken on medium heat until no longer pink in the middle.
  • When your chicken is golden delicious, start layering on a foil-lined baking sheet!
  • Layer the bacon first (breaking it into smaller pieces), then add the mushrooms and onions, and finish with the cheese.
  • Put it in the oven on low broil and watch it closely. Everything is cooked, so you just want to let the cheese melt, bubble, and brown slightly.
  • While the chicken broils, mix your honey mustard.
  • When your chicken is done, remove it from the oven, serve with your sauce, and enjoy!

Notes

If your chicken is thick, pound it a mallet so it's flatter. That will help the toppings stay on easier, and the chicken will cook faster, too!
