  1. Add the oil to a pan over medium high heat. Place the chicken in and season with salt, pepper, thyme, and rosemary. Stir and fry until browned and cooked through. This should take about 5 or 6 minutes.

  2. Add in the garlic and stir and saute for about 2 minutes until the garlic is fragrant. 

  3. Place in the olives, artichokes, and sun-dried tomatoes. Stir and fry for 3 to 5 minutes.

  4. Serve over the rice and garnish with parsley. 

  5. Enjoy your Greek chicken and rice.

If you can't find artichokes, which really make the dish, you can use asparagus or brussel sprouts. I do strongly suggest you get the brussel sprouts, however. Most grocery stores carry them.

You can also boneless skinless thighs in place of the breasts for a bit more flavour. 

Roasted bell peppers also go nicely with the dish.
