I'm using Audacity to process some short audio clips - about 300 of them (!!!), so I'd really rather not repeat my steps manually for each one.

However, I can't seem to find a way to create a chain which includes the "split stereo track & discard right channel" step. I'm at my wits' end; is there any way to do this? If not, is there another program that would let me do this in an automated fashion?

Use ffmpeg

If you want to mute the first channel and keep the second:

ffmpeg -i INPUT -map_channel -1 -map_channel 0.0.1 OUTPUT
