• 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Prepare the Honey Mustard Marinade and Sauce:
    • In a bowl, whisk together Dijon mustard, honey, lemon juice, paprika, and salt. Reserve about 1/3 of the mixture to use as a sauce for serving. Use the remaining mixture to marinate the chicken breasts. Cover the chicken with the marinade and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight for best results.
  2. Cook the Bacon:
    • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place the bacon slices in a single layer. Bake until crispy, about 15-20 minutes. Once cooked, transfer to a paper towel to drain and cool, then chop or break into pieces.
  3. Sauté the Mushrooms:
    • While the bacon is cooking, heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced mushrooms and sauté until they are golden brown and their moisture has evaporated. Set aside.
  4. Grill the Chicken:
    • Remove the chicken from the marinade, shaking off any excess. Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a grill pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Grill the chicken breasts until cooked through and golden on each side, about 6-7 minutes per side.
  5. Assemble the Dish:
    • Preheat your broiler. Transfer the grilled chicken breasts to a baking dish. First, top each chicken breast with sautéed mushrooms. Then sprinkle the crispy bacon pieces, followed by a generous amount of both Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheeses.
  6. Broil the Chicken:
    • Place the baking dish under the broiler and broil until the cheese is bubbly and slightly golden, about 3-4 minutes. Watch carefully to avoid burning.
  7. Serve:
    • Serve the chicken hot, drizzled with the reserved honey mustard sauce. Pair with sides like garlic mashed potatoes or a fresh garden salad for a complete meal.
