First you will need the Template Files.  They can be downloaded here: http://dl.google.com/dl/edgedl/chrome/policy/policy_templates.zip
(If you are not familiar with how to install ADM/ADMX files in Active Directory, see this guide.)

Once you have installed the template, go to Computer Configuration \ Policies \ Administrative Templates \ Classic… \ Google \ Google  Chrome and enable “Configure the list of force-installed extensions”:

GPME-Chrome

 

And Click the “Show…” button:
GPME2-Chrome

And fill in the Value with the ID of the extension followed by the update url.  (The extension ID is the 32-letter string found e.g. on chrome://extensions when in developer mode.)

Example: gighmmpiobklfepjocnamgkkbiglidom;https://clients2.google.com/service/update2/crx

GPME3-Chrome

 

Find ID in Chrome:
