I'd stop feeding it entirely, if he is bringing it back up.

Also those precooked chickens form supermarkets often are very greasy and have flavoured skin -- the skin and fattiness can be way too rich and even can cause serious problems like pancreatitis (http://vetmedicine.about.com/cs/dogdiseasesp/a/pancreatitis.htm).

if you want to give chicken I'd stick to home boiled or roasted, no skin. But if he's vomiting it, I'd just stop giving it full stop. Sounds like something is not agreeing with him.

If he is underweight, has a poor appetite, and is vomiting food, you do probably want to get him in to talk to the vet.
