One of my all-time favorite dishes to order, at a restaurant back home in South Africa, is called an Alabama Chicken Stacker (I doubt that it’s really a recipe that hails from “Alabama”, but I just roll with it haha). It’s a delicious piece of toasted ciabatta, topped with a succulent chicken breast, tomato slices, crispy bacon, draped with melted mozzarella cheese, and finally, drizzled with honey mustard sauce. Ohhh boy. It’s as good as it sounds – well, reads, if we’re being technical here.
It’s been on my mind for a while now, because I just love recreating things I eat at restaurants. And seeing as this is one of my very favorites, it was just about time this easy and yummy creation made it into rotation. We finally present to you our Honey Mustard Stuffed Chicken. Mmmmhmmm.
It’s SO easy to make too. Butterfly the chicken breast and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and ground coriander on both sides. Top it with the sliced tomato, crispy bacon, and finally, the cheeeeese. Pop it in the oven for approximately 25 minutes and when it comes out – smother it with the quick and easy creamy honey mustard sauce.
It’s another perfect dinner recipe that comes together in less than 30 minutes and is a serious taste explosion. I know for a fact your family will love it, and who knows – it might just become a dinner staple!
