Aussie Chicken

5 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, pounded to 1/2 inch thickness
2 teaspoons seasoning salt
15 slices bacon, cut in half
1/2 cup prepared mustard
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
1 tablespoon olive oil
10 oz packaged sliced fresh mushrooms
2 cups shredded colby-monterey jack cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Rub the chicken breasts with the seasoning salt. Preheat oven to 350. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until crisp. Set aside. Lightly saute the mushrooms in the same pan. In a medium bowl, combine the mustard, honey, corn syrup, mayonnaise and dried onion flakes. Remove half of sauce, cover and refrigerate to serve later.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place the breasts in the skillet and saute for 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until browned. Remove from skillet and place the breasts into a 9x13 inch baking dish. Apply the honey mustard sauce to each breast, then layer each breast with mushrooms and bacon. Sprinkle top with shredded cheese.

Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and chicken juices run clear. Garnish with parsley and serve with the reserved honey mustard sauce.

Sweetnicks' Notes: Lots of extra sauce, so would be great served over rice. On the table in under 30 minutes.
