lemon lime rice


i got this recipe off the internet a while back, but i can't remember which website. it is my favorite way to serve rice. it's simple to prepare, very tasty and turns common rice into a tasty side dish to complement just about any main entree. i've been making it for a long time now, and i find that it goes really well with just about any main dish. but my all-time favorite is to serve it with baked chicken breasts served with a tangy lime sauce. update....based on feedback, i have worked on improving this recipe. specifically, i increased the amount of water (from 3 1/2 cups to 4 cups, which i think produces a much fluffier rice. but if you have better luck using more or less liquid when cooking rice, please feel free to adjust the amount of water.
