1. I preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).

2. In a large baking dish, I mix together uncooked rice, chicken broth, chopped onion, minced garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, baby spinach, dried oregano, dried basil, salt, and pepper.

3. I place the chicken breasts on top of the rice mixture.

4. I sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese over the chicken and rice.

5. Covering the baking dish with foil, I bake it for 35-40 minutes or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked, and the rice is tender.

6. Removing the foil, I broil for an additional 5 minutes until the cheese turns golden and bubbly.

7. Before serving, I garnish it with fresh parsley.
