The chicken might be part of the reason that she's vomiting. It's not uncommon for human food to cause this with dogs; they're not nearly as used to the regular dietary changes that people are.

So long as she's not diabetic, it's safe to pick up both her food and water for about 6 hours. Whenever you're able, she can take a single dose of famotidine (see dosage here: http://www.petplace.com/article/drug-library/library/over-the-counter/famotidine-pepcid) to help calm her stomach. As soon as the 6 hours as passed, she should be feeling much better. You can then introduce small amounts of her regular food and small amounts of water slowly over a few hours. You can give her progressively more as time goes on until she's eating the full amount that she'd normally eat. If her vomiting persists over 12 hours, it's a good idea to have her examined by a veterinarian and given an injectable medication for nausea which will work whether she's vomiting or not.
