  • 4 medium boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup mushrooms sliced fresh
  • 2 tbs butter
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1/2 cup Monterray jack cheese shredded
  • Fresh chopped parsley for garnish optional
  • 4 bacon strips cooked. Streaky in UK, cut in 1-inch pieces


  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
  • Juice of 1 small lemon
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise


  • Mix all the marinade ingredients together in a small bowl, reserve 1/2 cup for dipping sauce. Place chicken breasts in a zipper freezer bag and pour in the remaining marinade. Place in the refrigerator and marinate at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Melt butter in a large oven-proof skillet over medium heat. When butter foams, add the sliced mushrooms and cook until the liquid is evaporated and the mushrooms are browned; remove from the pan and set aside.
  • In the same skillet, add the olive oil over medium-high heat. Remove chicken from the marinade, letting excess drip off. Discard the marinade.
  • Place chicken in the skillet and let it brown—do not move it—this will take about 5 minutes. Turn the chicken and brown the other side without moving it.
  • Distribute the mushrooms evenly on top of each chicken breast. Mix the cheeses together and divide evenly over the top of each chicken breast. Distribute bacon evenly on top.
  • Place skillet in preheated oven and cook for about 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted, bacon begins to crisp and the internal temperature is 160 degrees F.
