2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
2 1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar, divided
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger
2 cups chopped peaches
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
1 ounce goat cheese, crumbled (about 1/4 cup)
4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/2 cup unsalted chicken stock (such as Swanson)
