Alice Springs Chicken (kind of)

We've determined during all this dieting biz that the majority of our carbs need to be eaten before dinner. Seems like when we eat them at night -- even if they are whole wheat/high fiber -- we either gain or stay the same weight.

So with that in mind I made my version of Alice Springs Chicken. This is an Outback dish that I'm not even sure is on the menu these days. I would never order it there though because how could you go there and not get a slab of beef. Seriously.

Alice Springs-Like Chicken

4 Chicken breasts - around 4 ounces - pounded out to even thickness
12 slices of bacon - pepper bacon if you have it
Honey Mustard
Cheddar Cheese

Smear honey-mustard on both side of the chicken. Put it to the side. Cook your bacon and leave the grease in the pan. But I use low fat bacon so there is not that much grease. If you use regular bacon take some (if you must) out. Cook the chicken until done. Top each piece of chicken with 3 slices of bacon. Top with cheese. Cover with foil until the cheese is melted. Serve with a bit of honey mustard on the side.
