But first, HELLO, dear friends! Happy day to you all. This morning I find myself sipping on coffee through a straw (a STRAW!) because yesterday I paid an arm and a leg to get my teeth whitened.

They also said, no red wine… so I reached for the white. I was told not to eat raspberries, too… so I reached for more white wine. 

All that wine helped me get over the price tag of two things; teeth whitening AND taxes. HOLD ME!

And I used the remaining 1 cup of wine in this wonderful One Pan Chicken Piccata and Rice.  Normally, I would have used chicken broth, but clearly these days I need something that’s a little bit stronger.

The idea for this delicious meal comes from my One Pot Chicken and Rice with Artichokes. I am HAPPIEST when I can make a side AND a main all in one pan, so this had to happen, no matter what.

    Are you using a cup of uncooked rice or a cup of par-cooked rice? And, have you used long grain rice, or would you not recommend that?
