Copycat Alice Springs Chicken (Trim Healthy Mama version)

We went to Outback earlier this week, and I was able to enjoy the Alice Springs Chicken, but I had to ask them to leave off the honey mustard because that's not on plan with Trim Healthy Mama (THM).  I began perusing Pinterest this afternoon looking for a version that would be THM approved, and I found a few.  But -- I decided to tweak it just a bit.  Here's my version...

Alice Springs Chicken (THM version) -- S
***this is modified for one chicken breast, but you can easily add more of everything to make us much as you need***

boneless, skinless chicken breast (I like to slice mine thin so it cooks faster or just buy the thin-sliced cutlets)
onion powder
garlic powder
sliced cheese (flavor of choice, but I used Colby Jack)
Dijon mustard
sweet blend or other THM approved sweetener of choice

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Heat up a bit of coconut oil and butter in a skillet.  Sprinkle the chicken with the spices on both sides, and then brown both sides (you don't want it to cook through).  Remove the chicken from the skillet and place it an oven-safe dish.  Saute the mushrooms in the same skillet.  While the mushrooms are sauteeing, mix up the mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, and sweet blend to your liking (I don't have exact measurements because it's really a personal preference...I used more mayo than anything).  Spread the mayo mixture on top of the kitchen (reserving any leftovers for dipping once it's all cooked).  Put sauteed mushrooms on top of the mayo mixture.  Add the bacon and cover with a slice of cheese (I used half a slice).

Bake the chicken for about 15 minutes or until cooked through (time will depend on how long it browned in the skillet).

I served mine up with a big salad, but it would be good with non-starchy vegetables as well.  

I'll be enjoying this a few more times over the next few days because I cooked up two more pieces of chicken and extra mushrooms.  They're in the fridge, and I can pull them out, add the cheese and bacon and bake it until done.  I like prepping ahead and making life easier.
