Sun dried tomato chicken

This is one of those recipes I found online and have made a million times now because it is just so good!            I originally found it here: on Everyday Paleo.

1 jar of julienne cut sun-dried tomatoes in oil
2 lbs boneless chicken breasts thawed (you could use thighs also, just don't cut them)
2 TBSP dried basil
8 cloves of garlic, sliced thin
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Cut breasts in half length wise and place in glass baking dish.
Sprinkle with Basil and salt and pepper to taste.
Sprinkle sliced garlic on top of each breast.
Pour jarred tomatoes allover chicken, including the oil. Spread the tomatoes as evenly as you can over the chicken.
Cover tightly with foil and bake covered for 15-20 minutes. (I find that 15 minutes works best for thinner breasts.)
After 15-20 minutes, remove foil and continue baking uncovered for 15 minutes.

Jar of tomatoes: $2.99
Chicken: $4.39 (I buy tyson all natural frozen chicken breasts, 2.25 lb bags)
Basil: $1.99
Garlic: $1.13 (pre-peeled, cheaper if you peel it yourself!)

Total cost: $10.50
Servings: About 6
Cost per serving: $1.75

Super cheap and really delicious meal!
