Loaded Chicken Breasts for One

Classic baked potato fixings on chicken breasts make a high-protein, high-fat, low-carbohydrate meal for one. This is a fast dinner for busy weeknights. It cooks up in one pan so cleanup is easy.

1 serving


  • 2 slices bacon

  • 2 skinless chicken breasts

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • ½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 1 cup baby spinach leaves

  • ¼ cup sour cream

  • 1 tablespoon thinly sliced chives


  1. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook bacon slices, turning occasionally, until crispy, about 10 minutes. Place on a plate to cool. Crumble with your fingers and set aside.

  2. Cook chicken breasts in the bacon grease over medium heat until browned on one side, about 5 minutes. Flip over and cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 5 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Arrange Cheddar cheese on top of each breast and let melt.

  4. Arrange baby spinach on a serving plate. Place the chicken on top. Top with sour cream, crumbled bacon, and chives.
