If using chicken breasts, pat dry and, on a separate cutting board, cut into 1" dice. Follow same instructions as diced chicken in Step 2, stirring occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.
If using 24 oz. diced chicken, follow same instructions, working in batches if necessary.
If using bacon, line a plate with a paper towel. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add bacon to hot pan. Flip occasionally until crisp and bacon reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 6-8 minutes. Transfer to towel-lined plate to remove excess oil. Add to recipe as desired.
