New Recipe Night - Aussie Chicken - FREAKING ROCKED IT!

On of the best new recipe nights EVER!  Again from Pinterest... Zack didn't eat it, but Mimi, John and I really liked it!  AWESOME!  I don't know why it's called Aussie Chicken, I think it comes from a recipe that you can get at Outback Steakhouse, but since we never eat there, I wouldn't know.
Aussie Chicken
4 boneless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/2 inch thickness (sometimes it's easier to filet them instead)
seasoned salt
6 slices of bacon, cut in half
1/4 cup regular mustard ( I didn't have enough so I substituted a little Grey Poupon)
1/4 cup honey
2 Tbsp mayo (didn't have it, used sour cream)
2 tsp dried onion flakes
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
2 cups shredded Colby/Jack cheese

Sprinkle and rub the chicken breasts with seasoning salt.  Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes (didn't do this).  
Meanwhile, cook bacon in a large skillet until crisp.  Remove bacon. ****Do Not discard grease*** Saute chicken in the bacon grease for 3-5 minutes per side or until browned. Move chicken to 9x13 pan.

In a small bowl, mix the mustard, honey, mayo and dried onion flakes.  Apply the honey mustard to each breast, then layer with mushrooms, bacon and shredded cheese.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until cheese is melted and chicken is done.  If chicken has been filleted then more like 20 min.

I serve it with rice pilaf and a salad.  It really was delicious and easy (except for the cooking the bacon) and it's made from regular ingredients that you would usually have around the house.  A great one to pull out for unexpected company.
