Sun-dried Tomato Chicken

The toppings of sun-dried tomatoes and sliced fresh basil add more flavor and a pretty appearance to this chicken recipe. Here's the trick to softening the texture of sun-dried tomatoes: Buy them packed in oil, and then drain and rinse in hot water to remove oil. Chop tomatoes with a knife, or snip them into smaller pieces with kitchen shears.
