Chicken and Pine Nuts

2 tsp. olive oil
½ c. pine nuts

1 bottle of sun-dried tomatoes in oil, cut into bite-size pieces
1 c. water
2 large cloves of garlic, pressed or minced
¼ tsp. salt
½ tsp pepper
a light sprinkle of red chili flakes
½ tsp dried basil leaves
½ tsp dried thyme, crushed
Angel hair pasta

Lightly brown the pine nuts in a fry pan in the olive oil, stirring constantly.  When lightly brown, place pine nuts on a paper towel and set aside. 

3-4 boneless chicken breasts, grilled, heavily seasoned with garlic salt and pepper and cut into bite size pieces.

Put sun-dried tomatoes and oil, water, garlic and spices in a fry pan.  Bring to a boil and allow it to cook down a bit.

Put angel hair on to boil.  Cook until tender. 

Mix pasta, sauce and pine nuts together and serve immediately while warm.
