Quinoa cooks quickly, in about 8 minutes, but for this recipe you will want your quinoa to be cooled completely. Plan to let it cool in the refrigerator for at least an hour after cooking.
The easiest way to make this salad is to start with some rotisserie chicken breasts that are chopped or shredded. If you don't have any, you can grill 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts in olive oil for a few minutes.
