  3. NOTE!!  Let the chicken rest after you take it out of the oven!  You want it to rest for at least 5 minutes so that the juices from the chicken redistribute instead of seeping out.  This way, the chicken stays moist and juicy!

    Slice each chicken breasts into 4 slices on an angle.  Serve each person 3 slices and Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Note, serving size here is about 6 ounces per serving.  3 Chicken breasts each about 8oz, can then be sliced and served in 4 portions.  If you want to add a 4th chicken breast, simply increase the sun dried tomatoes to 3/4 cup and add a touch more water and olive oil to ensure you get a smooth texture with some small tomato bits.
