  1. Lay chicken breasts in a shallow baking dish. Lightly sprinkle garlic salt on both sides of the chicken breasts.  Melt the butter and add the olive oil and lemon juice; mix together.   Pour butter mixture over the chicken breasts and let sit for a few minutes.  Grill the breasts about 6 minutes on each side until chicken runs clear when pierced with fork. Continue to brush marinade over chicken as it grills.  If no grill is available, fry the chicken in butter and oil, for about 6 minutes on each side.  Sprinkle with lemon juice and set aside.
  1. Using another fry pan, place the butter and oil in the pan and heat until warm. Add the mushrooms and red bell peppers; sauté about 3 minutes.  Add the artichokes and sun-dried tomatoes; cook together about 4 to 5 minutes.  Add the cream, salt, and coarse pepper, balsamic vinegar and lemon juice.   Cook on low heat until the cream and vegetables have blended together, about 5 minutes.
  1. Turn heat off and add the tomatoes. Gently stir in the tomatoes to keep them from becoming mushy.  Taste, and add any desired additional seasonings.
  1. Place one chicken breast on dinner plate. Ladle each breast with a portion of the creamed vegetables.  Serves 4.
