Garlic Rice with Green Onions and Cilantro

I was making Asian flavored chicken for dinner and I wanted to serve it with rice. I decided to some garlicky rice and make it a little more snazzy with some green onions and fresh cilantro. We all enjoyed the rice, even the kids, and it paired nicely with the chicken. Quick, simple, and tasty – you can’t beat that.

Heat the butter and olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Add the rice and cook, stirring often so the rice doesn’t stick to the pan, for 3-4 minutes. Add the chicken broth and season with sea salt and white pepper, to taste. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium low. Cover and let cook 20 minutes.

Remove the rice from the burner without removing the lid and let it sit for 5 minutes. Carefully remove the lid and fluff rice with a fork. Sprinkle with chopped green onions and fresh cilantro, toss to mix thoroughly then serve. Enjoy.
