Alice Springs Chicken

My wife made this yesterday for dinner and I got to admit it was one of the best dishes she has ever made with chicken.

Ingredients:

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, 1/2 inch thick
Seasoning Salt
6 bacon slices
1/4 cup regular mustard
1/3 cup honey
2 Tbsp. Mayonnaise
2 teaspoons dried onion flakes
1 cup sliced fresh mushroom
2 cup shredded Colby/Jack cheese

Directions:

First, Sprinkle and rub the chicken breasts with seasoning salt. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

While the chicken is in the refrigerator, cook bacon in a large skillet until crisp. Remove bacon and set aside. (Do not discard grease.)
Saute chicken in the bacon grease for 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until browned. Place chicken in a 9″ × 13″ casserole dish or pan.
To make the Honey Mustard: In a small bowl, mix the mustard, honey, mayonnaise and dried onion flakes.
Spread some of the Honey Mustard over each piece of chicken, then layer with mushrooms, crumbled bacon, and shredded cheese.
Bake in a 350° oven for 30 minutes, or until cheese is melted and chicken is done.

Liberty Lake 7/19/14

Headed out to Liberty this morning hoping that maybe with the rainy conditions outside that maybe the catfish would be biting but too my dismay they were not. Ended up switching over to fish for bluegill and ended up catching perch. I also ran into a old buddy of mine that I haven’t seen in years and spent most of the day shooting the breeze and catching up. We ended up keeping 13 perch and 4 bluegill. We probable cuaght another dozen or so that we turned back. Took a few pictures of our big catches for the day, just kidding they were the smallest perch we cuaght.

Muamee River 7/6/14

Finally made it up to the Muamee River to do some catfishing. The day started off a little rough as someone was in my favorite fishing hole and I only cuaght a small catfish and several fresh water drum before I finally found a nice spot and the bite turned on. I ended up keeping a total of six catfish but they all were nice ones and the biggest weighed just over 10 lbs and measured just over 26 inches long. Hopefully I can head back up in a few weeks.

Liberty Lake 7/5/14

I started the day off with plans of hitting the creek down the road and then hitting the Muamee River. Needless to say that didnt happen and I ended up hitting Liberty Lake. Tried shrimp, chubs and cut bait and couldnt get a nibble so I switched over and started fishing for bluegill. Did good on wax worms and power bait and ended up keeping 9 bluegill for the day. Also cuaght a few yellow perch and two crappie but threw them back, just two small for my liking.
