Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Marinade meat in covered bowl or plastic bag for at least 2 hours. Marinate chicken as shown above, or follow directions on package if using pre-packaged marinade. While chicken is marinating, slice onions and mushrooms and cook your bacon. Sauté mushrooms and onions in butter and hickory smoke flavor for 3 to 5 minutes, or until onions are transparent but not brown and mushrooms are tender. Remove chicken from marinade, and grill for about 10 minutes. Do not overcook chicken. While grilling, preheat oven on broil. After chicken is done, remove from grill and place in a shallow baking dish. Cover each breast with a strip of bacon, then provolone cheese, then some sautéed onions and mushrooms. Broil for 3 to 5 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly.
