Alice Springs Chicken Makeover

This recipe is a skinny version of a play on Alice Springs Chicken from Outback Steakhouse. Now, I omit the mushrooms but even having done so, this recipe tastes pretty similar to the restaurant version. Only, this version is only 5 Weight Watchers Smart Points, to where the Outback Steakhouse version is 33!


2 chicken breasts, butterflied and cut in half
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
2 slices bacon, crumbled
1/4 c. yellow mustard
1/8 c. honey
2 Tbs. light Miracle Whip
2 Tbs. fat free plain yogurt
1 green onion, chopped
1 1/2 tsp. olive oil
1/4 c. reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese

Heat the olive oil in a medium size skillet on medium high heat. Sprinkle the chicken with the garlic salt and place in the pan. Brown on both sides (do not cook through!) and place on a baking sheet lined with tinfoil that has been sprayed with non stick cooking spray. In a small bowl, mix together the mustard, honey, Miracle Whip, yogurt and green onion. Divide evenly on top of each of the four pieces of chicken. Sprinkle 1/4 of the bacon on each piece. Divide the cheese up evenly and sprinkle on the chicken. Bake for 20-23 minutes in the oven until the chicken is nice and juicy and the juice runs clear from the middle. Let cool slightly before serving.

(This makes four servings of chicken, and each serving of chicken is 5 Weight Watchers Smart Points.)
