  3. Combine Dijon mustard, honey, mayonnaise, and dry minced onion in a separate bowl.
  4. Mix well and generously spread the honey mustard sauce onto the top of the chicken breasts.
  1. Top with sliced mushrooms and Colby Jack cheese.

What to serve with Alice Springs Chicken?

In the Outback steakhouse restaurant itself, you have choices like an Ensalada Caprese salad, mashed potatoes, broccoli, or a variety of oven-roasted veggies like these carrots.

Pair up Copycat Alice Springs chicken with one of those side dishes and some dinner rolls, and you have an entire restaurant-quality meal without leaving the house.

Ensalada Caprese is a delicious and fresh Italian salad! It has juicy tomatoes, creamy mozzarella cheese, and fresh basil leaves. The tomatoes and mozzarella are sliced, layered on a plate, and then drizzled with flavorful olive oil and balsamic vinegar dressing.

Oven-roasted vegetables are full of flavor! The vegetables are roasted until golden brown and lightly crispy on the outside while maintaining a tender, flavorful inside.

The vegetables’ natural sweetness intensifies when roasted in the oven, creating a delicious balance of sweet and savory. Adding herbs and spices can add an extra flavor that enhances the already delicious roasted vegetables even more!

Potatoes are a classic comfort food! From mashed to baked, fried to boiled, potatoes are the ultimate and classic side dish that goes with every single recipe.

  1. Absolutely delicious and it tasted So amazing just like the restaurant it was so simple to prep and cook and the family Enjoyed it ! I doubled The recipe with my family of 4 lol ! Saved in my pins 🙂 broccoli and homemade red skinned mashed potatoes.

    1. Hi Kelly! Thank you for taking the time to come back and respond. I love your side dish options there too with red skinned mashed potatoes and broccoli. I need to come over to your house!

  2. I have made this before but not this recipe.. can’t wait to make it again.. would love to know the amount of carbs….

    1. you can pop the recipe link into carbmanager to read carbs, I havent found anything 100% reliable so I dont like to give nutritional advice.

  3. The best Alice Springs Chicken recipe out there! Instead of mustard, I used Dijon mustard. I also bacon in the oven for 10 minutes, poured the bacon fat into a cast iron skillet and then followed the recipe, putting the bacon on top instead of bacon bits. Thank you soooo much for creating this recipe!!!! ❤️

    1. Amanda, after I got your comment I did a double take, because the recipe SHOULD say Dijon. I dont know how I only typed mustard. Thank you for the catch and so happy you love your Alice springs chicken dinner!

  4. Any idea what the carbs are in one serving?

    1. Hi Laurel, I do not track carbs on most of my articles because I would not want to be responsible for someones diet needs. You can easily input your information into apps, I hear CarbManager is great!

  5. Can’t make this soon enough like every part of it. The stay at home is one big plus, I’m in my 73 year of life it’s hard to get out.

    1. 73 years young if you are still cooking delicious meals! Let me know if I can be of any help to you Kari!

  6. How can this be a keto recipe

    1. Trisha Haas says:

      Its def not keto or listed as keto, however if you are asking how to make it one, just don’t use the sauce. Chicken, cheese and mushrooms should be keto? I am def not experienced enough to tell you all alterations of this.

  7. This recipe is attached to a picture that says: Alice Springs Chicken (Outback Copycat) KETO. But I agree it definitely is not KETO. But it can be made to be Keto by substituting the honey with sugar free honey. Everything else is fairly low in carbs.

    1. Trisha Haas says:

      Agreed, it should NOT say keto! But I dont have control over images that people make sometimes. I do agree you can make things low carb though, just get rid of the honey or i love your suggestion on sugar free honey!

Where To Next?
