Cilantro-Lime Rice (Cafe Rio knock-off)

I have tried several knock-off recipes, and this is the best so far...but not exactly the same.

1 cup uncooked rice
1 teaspoon butter or margarine
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon lime zest
1 can (15 oz.) chicken broth
1 1/4 cup water
2 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
2 tsp sugar
3 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro

In a saucepan combine rice, butter, garlic, lime zest, chicken broth, and water. Bring to a boil. Cover and cook 15-20 minutes, until rice is tender. Remove from heat. In a small bowl, combine lime juice, sugar and cilantro. Pour over hot cooked rice and mix.

Anyone ever tried a knock-off of their house dressing??? SO GOOD. I have a few recipes I just need to try them to see which ones the best.
