Cilantro-Lime Rice

I like this rice with my Cafe Rio Chicken.  You can eat it as a side dish, but I like it piled on with the chicken as a burrito.

Cilantro-Lime Rice

1 c. uncooked rice
1 tsp. butter
2 cloves minced garlic
3 tsp. lime juice, divided
2 c. chicken broth or water
1 tsp. sugar
3 Tbsp. chopped cilantro

1.  Combine rice, butter, garlic, 1 tsp. lime juice and chicken broth in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer on low for about 20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.
2.  Meanwhile, combine sugar and 2 tsp. lime juice and cilantro.  Stir in to cooked rice and fluff with a fork.  (If you used water instead of chicken broth, or used low sodium broth, you may need to add some salt to taste.)
