I used to ride folding bikes a lot, which use only 1 chainring. I didn't have any dropped chains, but some bikes added a chain guide or chain tensioner to make sure.

I'm not a fan of that approach though. Unless you're riding in an area that's very flat, the gearing won't be sufficient. I can't think of any advantage to modifying an existing bike that way, really.
