Shred or slice roasted chicken and place in a mixing bowl. Set aside.
Place vinegar, brown sugar, Dijon mustard, and mandarin oranges into a blender or food processor. Blend together for 1 minute. Slowly add oil and continue to blend on low speed for 1 minute. Add salt and pepper and blend for 10 seconds. Pour half of the vinaigrette over chicken and place in refrigerator until ready to serve. Save the remaining vinaigrette for salad dressing.
