Delish Delights: Copycat Alice Springs Chicken

Welcome to week two of Delish Delights! Did you try any of the recipes from last week? What’s on your menu for this week?


I love Outback restaurant. I usually get a steak, but every once and awhile I like to mix it up and try the Alice Springs Chicken. I decided to try my hand at creating a copycat version at home.

Copycat Alice Springs Chicken


  • 3-4 chicken breasts
  • Marinade of your choice
  • 4-5 slices of bacon
  • Mushrooms
  • BBQ sauce
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Olive oil


  1. Trim your chicken breasts of any fat. Pound the chicken breasts into a uniform thickness; this helps cut down on cooking time.
  2. Marinate your chicken for 3-4 hours or overnight. I used Lawry’s marinade but I think Italian dressing would have been great as well. (You could skip this step. I just prefer marinated chicken.)
  3. Grill your chicken (you could also cook them on top of the stove).
  4. While your chicken is cooking, you will want to cook your bacon and saute your mushrooms. Pour about a tablespoon of olive oil into a pan and saute your mushrooms on medium high heat. I cook my bacon in the microwave but you could cook the bacon first and then cook the mushrooms in some of the bacon grease.
  5. Once your chicken, bacon, and mushrooms are cooked you will want to turn your stove on to broil.
  6. Assemble the chicken. Brush a generous layer of BBQ sauce onto the chicken. Layer bacon, mushroom, and cheddar cheese on top of the chicken.
  7. Broil the chicken until the cheese has melted.
  8. Serve!
