Wash leeks by soaking them in cold water and then running cold water over them to remove all dirt and grit.

Place chicken pieces in skillet and cook for 10 minutes, or until the pieces are cooked through. Return leeks and garlic to the pan and add sun dried tomatoes, soaking water, artichoke hearts and oregano. Cook, uncovered, stirring occaisionally for 5 minutes. Pour in wine and simmer for 5 minutes more. Add pine nuts. Stir. Transfer rigatoni to the pan and stir to combine all ingredients.
