Cilantro Lime Rice

Mmmm... I made this rice to go with Southern Living Chicken Enchiladas, and i'm sure it would go great with Cafe Rio Sweet Pork or any other mexican meal. It was so easy and so delicious.

Cilantro Lime Rice

1 cup uncooked Jasmine rice
1 teaspoon butter or margarine
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon lime zest
1 cup chicken broth
1 ¼ cup water
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
2 teaspoons sugar
3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped

In a saucepan combine rice, butter, garlic, lime peel, chicken broth & water. Bring to a boil. Cover and cook 15 – 20 minutes until rice is tender. Remove from heat. In a small bowl combine lime juice, sugar & cilantro. Pour over hot cooked rice.

Double or triple the recipe as appropriate.
