I am such a huge rice lover. When cooking Mexican inspired dishes, I usually make my Homemade Spanish Rice to serve on the side. This time I decided to switch it up and cook Cilantro Lime Rice. It tastes similar to Chipotle, but I used chicken broth instead of water. You can always make skip the chicken broth and just stick with water if you prefer. This rice is so versatile, and it goes great with so many different dishes. Enjoy!
Chicken Cilantro Lime Rice (print recipe)
What you need:
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup Jasmine rice
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 large or 2 small limes
2 cups chicken broth
3 tablespoons cilantro, minced
salt, if desired
In a medium sized skillet or saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add rice and sugar, and saute for a couple minutes, then add the juice of 1/2 large lime, or 1 small lime. Stir for a minute, then add chicken broth and salt, if desired. Cover and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until broth is absorbed and rice is tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in cilantro, taste, and add more lime juice if needed.
