Sometimes cooking for one can be a bit of a pain. This is a favorite dish of mine; it's quick, simple, delicious, and a great way to use leftover chicken. Serve on a bed of rice, couscous, or noodles or for a low-carb option, omit the starch.

  • Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove bacon slices and drain on paper towels. When cool enough to handle, chop bacon into 1-inch pieces.

  • Add chicken, bell pepper, green onion, and bacon to the skillet. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until bell pepper has softened and chicken is heated through, 7 to 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Cook's Note:

Bacon fat can be drained from the pan without compromising the dish.
