  • Cilantro-Lime Rice:
  • Soak the rice in a bowl of water for 30 minutes.
  • Place the rice in a fine wire mesh sieve and rinse well with cold water until the water runs clear to remove starch.
  • Place the chicken broth in a small sauce pan along with the rice over medium heat.
  • Allow the mixture to come to a slight boil and turn the heat down to low. Cover with a lid and simmer until the rice is fork tender and fluffy.
  • Stir in the lime juice and cilantro and serve hot.
