Citrus Chicken and Wild Rice

My little niece, Claire who just turned 1, has started to give kisses. Usually when she gives kisses, she really just bites your lips and drools all over your face. But now she closes her mouth and then opens it when she kisses. It's SO cute! Not that I'm bragging, but I am the first person that she has given real kisses to.
