Sauteed Chicken with Scallion-Bacon Vinaigrette

It’s awesome to be back in the kitchen again, especially when I’m cooking with BACON.

Yes, you can still eat bacon and eat healthy!  It’s all about moderation, and I have to tell you… this recipe sort of knocked my socks off!  The flavor combination of white balsamic, bacon, and scallions is awesome… and felt much more in-depth than the 15 minutes it took to prepare.  And, PS… This is a Weight Watchers recipe!

Sauteed Chicken with Scallion-Bacon Vinaigrette

From Weight Watchers Simply Solo Cookbook

Serves 1


2 slices pre-cooked bacon (I used Hormel)

1 (4 oz) boneless skinless chicken breast

1/4 tsp. paprika

1/8 tsp. black pepper

pinch salt

2 medium scallions, thinly sliced

2 Tbsp. reduced-sodium chicken broth

2 tsp. white balsamic vinegar

cooking spray


1.  Sprinkle chicken with paprika, pepper, and salt.

2.  Prepare a skillet with cooking spray and add your chicken.  Cook for 4 minutes on each side, until done turning once.  Transfer chicken to rest.  Note:  I ended up butterflying my chicken because it was too thick!

3.  Cook your bacon in the pan for 30-45 seconds until done.  Remove to paper towels.  Crumble bacon, once cool.

4.  To make the vinaigrette, add broth and vinegar to the pan and bring to a boil for about 1 minute.

5.  Add bacon and scallions, and combine.  After 30 seconds, remove from heat.

6.  Spoon vinaigrette over chicken.
