Anyone else love this popular honey mustard chicken served at Outback steakhouse?
Skip the steakhouse and make a yummy copycat KETO version of Alice Springs chicken at home! It’s a hearty and delicious crowd pleasing keto chicken recipe all will love!
Chicken breasts are first marinated in a homemade honey mustard sauce and then baked with crispy bacon, sauteed mushrooms, and melted with lots of cheese. Serve it up with some of the honey mustard sauce on the side for a mouthwatering keto-friendly idea that’ll become a regular on your keto meal rotation.
- Use a sugar-free sweetener of choice instead of honey to keep things keto! I mixed in a tablespoon of Swerve confectioners to my sauce, and it turned out yummy! You could use about 10 drops of liquid stevia instead, or another keto sweetener to taste. Check out our Keto Sweetener Guide for more info on our favorite sweeteners!
- In a rush and don’t want to make your own sauce? You could instead consider using G Hughes Sugar-Free Honey Mustard Sauce as a shortcut.
- Try to marinate chicken for a couple hours. This will yield such a delicious honey mustard flavor!
- Meal Prep Idea: Make this recipe on Sunday for weekday lunches! This reheats very well, and you could take one to work for a mouth-watering lunch!

Honey mustard marinated chicken breasts with sauteed mushrooms, crispy bacon, and melted cheddar cheese.
For the honey mustard sauce:
- 2 tablespoons yellow mustard
- 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon Swerve, confectioners
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika
For the chicken:
- 4 thin chicken breasts, about 1.5 pounds

Whisk all the honey mustard ingredients together in a small bowl until smooth.
Place raw chicken breasts and half of the honey mustard sauce in a freezer bag, and seal bag. Reserve the other half of sauce for dipping. Marinade the chicken breasts in the fridge for 2 hours.
In a medium skillet, melt butter and saute mushrooms for about 5-7 minutes until tender. Remove from heat and set aside. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Heat a large skillet to medium heat on the stove, and transfer the chicken breasts to the skillet. Discard the remaining marinade in the bag. Season the chicken with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Cook for about 5-7 minutes on each side until browned.
Transfer the chicken to a casserole dish. Spoon mushrooms over the chicken. Place a piece of bacon over each chicken breast, and top each with shredded cheese.
Place the chicken into the oven for about 10 minutes until cheese is melted and chicken is cooked internally to 165 degrees.

We love this flavorful meal so much!
The chicken tastes so great with the buttery mushrooms, bacon, and the sauce. The flavors and textures are such a winning combination. In fact, my family LOVED this so much and have already asked for it again. It’s something that keto eaters and non-keto eaters alike will enjoy for sure.

This was amazing! I ate all of my bacon before I made this dish so I can only imagine it would have tasted that much better. The sauce was on point and the cheesy mushrooms were fantastic!
Yay! I love this one too! Thanks for sharing ❤️
Is the protein correct at 68G per serving?
Thanks so much for asking. We will double check and get back to you soon!
Hello again! After looking at the numbers once more, it seems the total protein is 65g. We’ll update the nutrition info above!
I’m making this tonight and going outside my comfort zone with the mushrooms. Do you sauté them alone or with some EVOO Or butter? I usually just avoid mushrooms but really want to try the full week plan.
Yep it’s in step 3 – sauté with butter. Then add them on top on step 5.
Cooked on charcoal grill. It was amazing
Oh wow yum! Thanks for sharing 👏
Yum! That looks better than the original!
Yes!!! It’s so delicious! Enjoy <3

Aww, Thanks so much for the super sweet feedback! SO glad you’ve been enjoying the recipes! 🤗❤️
this is delicious and will make many times in the future but where is the honey in the honey mustard sauce/marinade?
Yay! Glad you’re loving this recipe, Claire! 🙌❤️For this we’re using the 1 tablespoon of Swerve, confectioners instead of honey to keep things keto. Be sure to check out the tips above for additional details on that. 🤗
Do you eat a side dish with these meals? If so what do you suggest? Thank you!
I like to have vegetables on the side. If you want something similar to rice you can have riced cauliflower. I love having bacon-wrapped brussel sprouts, or green beans fried with bacon. We have a lot of side dishes listed here.
