Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cups long-grain rice
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 to 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • Juice of 3 limes and zest of 2 limes (hold back juice of 1 lime for garnish)
  • Chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish
Directions

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and onions and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and add the rice and salt. Cook over a low heat for 3 minutes, stirring constantly to make sure the rice doesn't burn. Add 2 cups of the broth and the juice and zest of 2 limes and bring it to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until the rice is done. Add more liquid as needed. The rice shouldn't be sticky.

Just before serving, stir through the juice of 1 lime and lots of chopped cilantro.
