Outbacks Alice springs chicken and Bennigans broc. bites! oh my!

For Bennigans Broccoli bites….

I took a 16 oz. box of frozen broccoli and de-thawed. I mixed that with a bag of shredded cheese, some chopped bacon bits( I used the pre-cooked  bacon, microwaved and chopped. I used half the box), 3 tablespoons of minced onion(sweet), and 2 1/2 tablespoons of flour. Mix that all together and place in the refrigerator for an hour(if you are in a hurry.. freeze for 20 min.). Take 3 eggs and whisk in a bowl. In a separate bowl take a cup of Italian bread crumbs and 1/2 cup of panko bread crumbs and mix together. Take your broccoli mixture and form into balls with your hands, place in the egg wash, then bread crumbs, then into a deep fryer(or oil in a dutch oven). Fry for about 2 min.(or until they are golden), then take out and place on a paper lined plate to drain. Serve with honey mustard.

1/ cup of Dijon mustard

1/3 cup honey

1 tblsp. lime juice

Outbacks Alice springs Chicken:

1 cup Dijon mustard

1 cup honey

1 tsp. lime juice

4-6 boneless chicken breasts

1 pkg of mushrooms

2 tablespoons butter

salt and pepper to taste

8 slices of bacon,cooked

shredded cheese

Outback’s Alice Springs Chicken:

Mix(preferably with an electric mixer) mustard, honey, lemon juice and 1 tbsp of olive oil. Pour 1/2 of the mixture over the chicken in a ziploc bag and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours(but you can marinate overnight). Chill the remaining marinate to serve with the chicken. Once you are ready to start cooking…Spray frying pan w/ cooking spray(I use a cast iron skillet or a cast iron panini press), sear chicken on both sides until cooked(about 8-10 min. Per side). In a separate pan… Melt the butter and saute the mushrooms until golden. Take the cooked chicken, place in an oven safe dish. top each chicken breast with 2 pieces of bacon across each breast, top with mushrooms and shredded cheese. Place in the oven on (low) broil until cheese is melted and golden and sprinkle with parsley!

Walllaaaa! Happy eating y’all!
