  1. Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir rice and garlic in hot oil until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Stir chicken broth, lime juice, and salt into rice; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, cover the saucepan with a lid, and simmer until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes.
  2. Stir cilantro, corn, green onions, and lime zest into rice until well-mixed.

Enjoyed this easy dish and will make again. Served with slow cooker cilantro lime chicken, chipotle barbacoa, black beans pico do gallo, guacamole, etc. etc.

Very tasty. Just the perfect lime taste. I particular like my rice white so next time I am going to use half chicken broth and half water.

Very good, quick and easy.

Delicious and easy to make.

Will make again!!! It was simple to put together and tasty. I used every day white rice because it's what I had and didn't compromise the recipe.

I was looking for cilantro & lime rice and this one is good. Thanks!

This was great! I made it to jazz up our usual taco night. Due to weeknight rush, I skipped the corn and green onion but I'm sure that would be even better. It was still good without it!

I made this recipe for 30 people and baked it in a roaster in the oven for 45 mins at *350. Turned out great!

This is such a go-to with so many different meat dishes. I omit the onions and corn and it goes great with oriental dishes.
