Outback Steakhouse Alice Springs Chicken and Honey Mustard Recipe

Looking for a copycat recipe for Outback Steakhouse Alice Springs Chicken and Honey Mustard? This copycat will wow you and your family and will become a regular hit at your table.

I am always looking for ways to “spice up” plain ol’ chicken breasts and this recipe became one of my top favorites! Whenever we go to Outback Steakhouse, my husband always gets a big steak and I always order their Alice Springs Chicken.

Then when I found this recipe, I decided to put it to the test to see if it tastes anything like the restaurant’s chicken . I dare say that it was almost better and it’s easy to make. So if you need a meal that will impress your dinner guests, look no further because here it is!

Alice Springs is a city in Australia, hence the name of this chicken from Outback Steakhouse. This is a favorite dish for many Outback Steakhouse fans, and definitely a Six Sisters’ FAVORITE!

Tips for making Alice Spring Rolls:

  • Cook the bacon prior to putting the Alice Springs chicken in the oven. Need a quicker option? Buy precooked bacon at the store.
  • You can make this dish with pre-cooked chicken, you will not need to cook as long since your chicken is already cooked. You will want to be sure everything is heated through and the cheese is melted
  • Not enough time to let your sauce set overnight? No worries, it will still taste delicious!

Other Ways You can Make Alice Spring Rolls

  • Sauté the chicken in bacon grease.
  • Yellow mustard? Dijon mustard? Whatever you have on hand makes a great honey mustard.
  • Don’t like mushrooms? Try grilled or caramelized onions. Jalapeno or banana peppers add a
    great kick
  • Experiment with the cheeses. Try a pepper jack or habanero blend.
  • Turkey bacon and light mayo help cut the calories with the same great taste.
  • Need some crunch? Add onion straws on top.
  • Tastes great served over rice.
  • Leftovers? Shred the chicken and use for quesadillas or to top your salad

**When my mom makes this, she makes tops each individual chicken breast with sauce, bacon, mushrooms, and cheese so it looks pretty . . . I made mine "casserole style" and just spread out the sauce, bacon, mushrooms, and cheese all over the place. Either way, it tastes the same. 🙂

  1. I make this all the time. We love it. I make it like your Mom though. And I have found that the Chick-fil-A Roasted Honey BBQ sauce (or something like that, and it's kept behind the counter) makes it taste awesome!!! Whenever I go to Chick-fil-A, I ask for extras and take home the rest to use when I make this.
  2. Just made this and it was very good. I would definitely make again. Didn't have any mushrooms in the house so I didn't use them. I would next time. I also had chicken cutlets that were already sliced really thin. It would have been better to have them a little thicker. I used yellow mustard in the sauce that went on the chicken and it was very good. I think any kind of mustard would work, it would just give it a different taste. Didn't bother with the extra sauce. I could see this being a great company dish as you could prep ahead and then just put it in the oven when needed.
  3. Started to make chicken and my girls said, 'chicken, again!''. So I turned to this recipe and oh my! DELICIOUS! This is my girls' favorite at Outback. The sauce is identical. My husband and I skipped the cheese and the bacon and it was still yummy. Thanks so much for sharing!
  4. We made this last night and OMG IT IS SO STINKIN GOOD! We sauteed our chicken in the bacon grease (can you just feel your arteries clogging with yummy goodness?) and holy cow--totally worth it. Next time, we're going to add caramelized onions to the mix. We're also going to attempt shredding the chicken and making quesadillas! Shared the recipe with my MIL and she can't wait to try it.

    I made this tonight. It was great. I left out the mushrooms because I'm not a fan and neither is my boyfriend. I did however cook little red potatoes and carrots and put them on the bottom of the 9*9 pan. It was delicious. And like I read above, no leftovers for me either. I'll have to make more next time.
    • We have a lot of side dishes on our blog that would go well with this. A salad goes well, some potatoes and any of our veggie recipes. Hope this helps. On the front page of our blog click on Categories. Then you see salads, sidedishes, and all kinds of ideas.

    Is the extra sauce necessary or will this be tasty enough without more sauce. One reviewer suggested putting cut up cooked pink potatoes and carrots on the bottom of the casserole dish. That sounded like a nice idea. I am planning to make the recipe and want to decide if I need the extra sauce. Thanks so much.

    This recipe looks awesome...always wondered what was in the chicken....as coming from the real Alice Springs in Australia i never felt the need to try our namesake dish when i visited an outback steakhouse...needless to say this is also in no way an actual dish native to Alice Springs!...Looking forward to trying it!
  8. made this tonight and it is a keeper! Was a bit salty but that could be from the seasoning salt. Used half yellow mustard and half Dijon as that's what I had on hand. Used "Habanero" cheese blend, again as that's what I had... Definitely added to the rotation! Thank you!
    I am confused why there are two sauces and that the chicken was not marinated in the first sauce (included with the chicken part). What do you do with the Honey mustard sauce? Is that to be included as a side sauce? I am sorry, but the directions and ingredients listed as is was confusing. Just comparing this recipe to some of the others out there and most marinate the chicken in part of the HM sauce prior to cooking the chicken. Thank you!
    • Follow steps 1-5 in the instructions using the ingredients under "chicken". It will tell you to apply the honey mustard mixture over each chicken breast and then topping it with the mushrooms and cheese. In step 6 it says to serve it with the honey mustard sauce. The honey mustard sauce ingredients are all listed and how to make it is explained. You serve that on the side of the finished recipe. It's great for dipping. Hope this clarifies things. Just go step by step and the ingredients are listed in the order used.
