Prepare the vinaigrette. Add all ingredients for the dressing to a medium-sized jar and secure with a tight fitting lid. Shake vigorously until fully combined. Season to taste and set aside until ready to use.
Poach the chicken. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add the chicken and return the water to a rolling boil. Remove from heat, cover, and set aside to "poach" (cook) for approximately 25-30 minutes. Carefully remove chicken from the pot and set aside to cool before shredding.
Prepare the salad. Add all ingredients for the salad, including the shredded chicken, to a large mixing bowl and toss well to combine.
Serve. Drizzle the salad with vinaigrette, mixing well to evenly combine. Or, serve salad in individual bowls and drizzle each bowl with the desired amount of vinaigrette.
