  1. Place the dried mushrooms into the boiling water and set aside until softened, about 20 minutes. Once softened, squeeze excess water from mushrooms and finely chop. Reserve the mushroom-flavoured water.
  2. Preheat an outdoor barbecue for medium-high heat and lightly oil cooking grate.
  3. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Barbecue chicken breasts until no longer pink in the centre, about 6 minutes per side. Once cooked, set aside.
  4. Pour chicken stock into a large pot and bring to the boil over high heat. Stir in sun-dried tomatoes, tomato puree and reserved mushroom liquid. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 15 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Stir in garlic and onion and cook until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the chopped mushrooms, artichokes, pepper, parsley, lemon juice and white wine. Bring to the boil over high heat, then reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes; add to the simmering chicken stock.
  6. Slice the grilled chicken breasts into strips and stir into the simmering soup. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese before serving.
