Artichoke and Sun Dried Tomato Stuffed Chicken

As part of my Monday night meal for sick boyfriend and hurting ankle Andy I made stuffed chicken breasts. This recipe is very easy, requires few ingredients, and tastes delicious. Marinated artichoke and sun dried tomatoes are a basic combination that can't go wrong and I had just enough marinated artichoke hearts to make this work. I haven't made stuffed chicken before and it was so easy so I am looking forward to coming up with more cominations fro stuffing. Fontina cheese would be a great addition to this particular mixture.

Artichoke and Sun Dried Tomato Stuffed Chicken

3 chicken breasts
1/3 cup marinated artichoke hearts
1/3 cup sun dried tomatoes
Freshly ground pepper
Dried thyme
Dried Oregano

1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
2. Finely chop the marinated artichoke hearts and sun dried tomatoes, set aside. Slice the chicken breasts down the side so that they have a deep pocket. Stuff them as much as you can with the artihoke and sun dried tomato mixture.
3. Sprinkle breasts with pepper, thyme and oregano. Bake until cooked through, about 25 minutes.
