This restaurant-fancy chicken recipe is one you'll want to use when you really want to impress company! We think the layer of mushrooms and flavorful sauce really add an extra-special flair to our Alice Springs Chicken. The best part? You can whip this up in just 30 minutes!

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

The flavor combination in this dish sound good to me but I would probably use bacon instead of ham. Also, would use real onion and garlic. Don't recall ever having the Alice Springs chicken at the restaurant but sure will next time we are there. Fortunately we are not diabetic so any changes would not harm us.

I made this for supper tonight with minor modifications. I substituted bacon for the ham and added sliced onions. I served it over noodles with a side of green beans and it was a hit with my husband and three kids. One con was the sauce got really runny in the baking process and I had to bake it longer than recommended in order to get the chicken cooked. Next time, I would slice my chicken breast into strips or bake in on a higher heat, maybe 375.

This isn't even close to Alice Springs chicken! Where's the honey mustard??

Hello - Our version is only loosely based on the restaurant favorite, since we made modifications to make it fit a diabetic diet. We think you'll find that it's pretty tasty, too!

My hubby and I didn't really care for this. Even though I added minced garlic and some chopped green chilies to the dish, it was still very bland. So, for the leftovers, I went a bit further and dumped a bunch of salsa on it. It was ok that way, but not a dish I make again for sure.

I have made this for a ladies card luncheon and I can tell you it is fantastic. I substituted the ham for 1/4 cup of peas and 1/2 cup of halved green grapes. For additional flavor if you make a larger amount, you can also add 1 can of cream of celery. For added crunch you can sprinkle toasted sliced almonds on top. Love this for an afternoon luncheon!

this looks really good though I'll make some substitutions and leave out the ham. Once I try it I'll come back and post a review )
