What we ate and where we ate it!
So while we were at the beach last week, my friend Teresa whipped up her very own version of Alice Springs Chicken. First, let me confess, while Alice Springs Chicken is Baby Sister's very favorite dish at the Outback restaurant - I have never tried it! Let me just say that this meal was fabulous and easy, so I begged T to let me share it with you!
|Wish I had taken a better picture!|
Here's what you need for Teresa's version:
*chicken breasts, boneless
T recommends you get the "good ones" like the organic choices because they taste better
*zesty Italian dressing
*crispy cooked bacon
Here's what you do:
*marinate chicken in dressing... she marinated ours all day while we were at the beach...just sayin'! :)
*slather on honey mustard
*when chicken is done, cover with crispy bacon, smother with provolone cheese and then finish off on grill or in oven
I did a google search and found numerous other recipes for this dish. Most have similar ingredients, some using dijon mustard and many adding mushrooms. I say customize to your taste buds! :)
While I am on the subject of our beach trip (again) let me show you a few shots of the fabulous beach house we stayed in. My Aunt was kind enough to rent it for us...thanks, Lynn!
Across the street from the beach, 4 bedrooms, 3 baths
garage apartment in the back...
queen bed, queen sleeper with kitchen and full bath
steps leading to back patio
back porch and private pool area - one day the wind was really blowing and the rustling palms just lulled you to relaxation out here!
view to the other end
inside back door
top of stairs
master bedroom - where I wanted to stay, but the boys said "no"
master bath had whirlpool tub with giant separate shower stall
upstairs porch, you could see the beach from the sides, master bedroom opened onto it and so did this room...
I would have also taken this room
or this room but...
this is where the boys made me sleep - SERIOUSLY!
kitchen/dining area and last the living area...
also, it was just a quick walk to the beach!
Overall, it was SUPER nice and we enjoyed ourselves so much! I know some of you have even nicer homes you live in every day, but for us this was a real treat!
