This is a lot of colorful salad, which makes it perfect for a buffet. It can easily be halved and is even more flavorful the next day. Make sure to use the appropriate rice for salads so that the grains don't absorb the dressing and you end up with cold risotto (which I've done :D) Prep time doesn't include cooking the chicken. If you're using chicken breasts, instead of poaching, which can dry them out, just dust them with flour and cook them in a little olive oil over medium-high heat for 4 minutes per side; let cool and cube for the salad. That only adds about 10 minutes to the prep.
