2tablespoons unsalted butter

In a 12 inch skillet over medium heat, add the bacon and cook until crispy. Drain the bacon, reserving the fat in the pan. Set the bacon aside for later.
Season the chicken on both sides with salt and pepper to taste. Season with 1/2 teaspoon of the garlic powder. Over medium heat in the same pan with the bacon fat, sear the chicken on both sides until golden brown, they do not have to cook through. About 8 minutes. Set the chicken on a pan and set aside.
Add the mushrooms to the pan and saute until cooked through, they will be slightly golden brown but not mushy. Take them out of the pan, and set aside. Finally, add the Brussel sprouts to the pan and toss in the remaining fat. Add the butter and toss to coat. Season with salt, pepper, and the remaining garlic powder to taste. Let sear until golden brown, about 5 minutes, tossing occasionally.
Place the chicken back into the pan with the Brussel sprouts, and place the whole pan into a preheated 350° oven. Cook until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 160°, about 20-25 minutes.
Top the chicken with the honey mustard, sauteed mushrooms, half of the bacon, and the cheese. Sprinkle the remaining bacon over the Brussel sprouts and cook an additional 3-5 minutes until the cheese is melted.
We like to use chicken breasts for this as it is larger portions but you can use chicken tenderloins or boneless skinless chicken thighs as well.
This can be frozen, see tips above.
Colby and Monterey Jack cheese are used in this recipe, but you can replace with what you have on hand.
The brussel sprouts are optional, we use them just to complete it as a rounded meal.
You can easily double this recipe to serve more people.
Use your favorite mushrooms, I used basic white button mushrooms.
