  1. Place chicken in a medium saucepan and add water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the chicken registers 165°F, 12 to 15 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a clean cutting board and let cool for 5 minutes; shred or chop into bite-size pieces.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk vinegar, oil, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add edamame, romaine, tomatoes, cucumber, feta, basil, olives, onion and the chicken; toss to coat.
  • Make Ahead Tip: Refrigerate cooked chicken (Step 1) for up to 3 days.

I make this weekly as a mason jar salad to take to work. Great flavor and easy to make. Sometimes, if I want to have a vegetarian salad, I replace the chicken with whole grains, like farro or quinoa. Sometimes I replace the tomatoes with red pepper. Very adaptable.

I made the dressing separate so I could eat it at a later time. Otherwise, no changes or adjustments were needed.
