Outback Great Chicken Dinner

Recommended Posts

Hi,

My husband has celiac and in the town we live in we only have three places that he feels save to eat at, Wendys, Outback and Red Lobster. Well if you've been to Outback and like chicken, bacon and cheese try their ALICE SPRINGS CHICKEN. It is so good I also order it , it is on their regular menu and their Gluten Free menu. It is a chicken breast grilled topped with monterey jack cheese and bacon with mushrooms (we get it without the mushrooms) my husband gets garlic mashed potatos and I get a baked potato.

Good thing you get it without the mushrooms. The mushrooms are marinated in a seasoned butter that has gluten in it.

I love the Alice Springs Chicken and get it whenver I go to Outback. I have eaten the mushrooms with no ill effects and I am very sensitive.

Yes, the mushrooms that come with the Alice Springs Chicken are definitely glutenfree. I would notice it right away, too, cause I'm very sensitive.

:lol: That's funny, I always get the Alice Springs Chicken with the roasted garlic mashed potatoes, too. Oh, isn't that ever good!!! :lol:

I emailed them this morning just to be sure, as i said I always get the mushrooms. Every few months someone posts that they are not gluten free, I don't know why?

so lets see what outback has to say

I think the confusion arises from the fact that there are two different items served at Outback that are "mushrooms." If I have it correct, the ones served with the Alice Springs Chicken are gluten-free. But the separately orderable sauteed mushrooms (as a side to a steak) are not on the gluten-free list.

Correct!

If you want another really yummy treat from Outback order the crab dip from the appetizer menu and the chicken/bacon/swiss sandwich (no bun) from the burger menu. I order with brocolli. Then I dip the chicken and brocolli in the crab dip. It is REALLY good, very rich!!! I love it!!!

I finally called the Outback where they told me the mushrooms were not gluten free and talked with the manager. Very frustrating that the night we were there I kept telling them the Alice Springs Chicken mushrooms were o.k., but when I got my order it had no mushrooms. Told the waiter again that they are supposed to be o.k. who went and talked with the kitchen and they were the ones that kept insisting they had been fried in seasoned butter.

Talking with the manager just now he says the server and kitchen were confused and the Alice Springs Chicken mushrooms are not fried in the seasoned butter. I asked if there were any chance they would have been frying them in seasoned butter and he said no.

Hopefully this clears things up. The discrepancies seem to be coming from confusion with the kitchen staff or servers not understanding that some of the mushrooms are o.k. and some aren't. I honestly had them check like 3 times because I'd had it before just fine and they kept insisting they were not o.k. and I wasn't feeling up to taking it to a manager that night.
