Cilantro Lime Rice

It was my son's birthday this past weekend and I always let my kids choose the menu for their birthday Sunday dinner.  He chose shish kabobs, grilled veggies, corn on the cob, grilled pineapple and cilantro lime rice.  I had never made this rice before, but had just got my hands on a recipe for this from my good friend Melinda (I just love so many of her recipes!).  It was very good and fresh tasting.  It will be a staple from now on. 

Cilantro Lime Rice

3 c chicken broth
1 1/2  c uncooked white rice
2 tsp lime zest
2 small cloves of garlic, minced
1 TBSP butter
black pepper to taste

juice of 1/2 lime (I added a little more)
2 TBSP chopped cilantro

(This can be cooked in a rice cooker or ...) In a saucepan combine broth, rice, lime zest, garlic, pepper and butter.  Bring to a boil.  Cover and reduce heat to low, simmering for 20-30 minutes - until the liquid is absorbed.  Remove from heat.  Uncover and add cilantro and lime juice - stirring to combine.

Is that 1 1/2 cup rice, Judy? This sounds good.
