Chicken with White Beans and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

2 15.5-ounce cans cannellini beans, rinsed
1/4 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
4 sprigs fresh thyme
4 sprigs fresh oregano, plus leaves for garnish
2 garlic cloves, smashed
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
kosher salt and black pepper
8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs

Heat oven to 425° F.

In a 9-by-13-inch (or some other large) baking dish, toss the beans and tomatoes with the thyme and oregano sprigs, garlic, red pepper, 1 tablespoon of the oil, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Pat the chicken dry and place on top of the bean mixture, skin-side up. Rub with the remaining tablespoon of oil; season with ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon black pepper.

Roast until the chicken is golden and cooked through, 25 to 35 minutes. Sprinkle with the oregano leaves.
