Chicken and Sun Dried Tomatoes

When my grandmother was alive this was her all time favorite food.  She would request it often, but it wasn't a bother becuase it is that good to eat.

4 chicken breats halves, skinless and boneless, each cut in 6 pieces
2-1/2 tablespoons olive oil or butter
1 large shallot minced
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2/3 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons white wine (can use the white wine bought in the grocery store)
1-1/4 cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup dried tomato halves

Soften tomatoes in hot water.  Cut into strips.  heat oil in skillet and saute chicken pieces 4 to 5 minutes.  Using slotted spoon, removed chicken to platter.  Saute shallot one minute, then add 1 1/4 cup chicken broth and remaining ingredients.  Add 2 tablespoons cornstarch.  Simmer and stir until sauce thickens.  Return chicken to skillet, simmer until heated.  Serve over rice or angel hair pasta.
