Pioneer Woman's Lime Rice

This rice can be found in the Pioneer Woman's A Year of Holidays cookbook, and we really enjoyed this.  It is easy, and quick to make, and although I cut it in half, I basically followed the recipe.  Noah gave it a 7, and everyone else gave it a 9.  For 1/5 of the total, the calories are 151.  Here's what to do:
1/2 T olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 onion, chopped
1 c rice
2 c chicken broth
1/4 t salt
Juice of 1 1/2 limes, and zest of 1 lime
Heat the oil in a medium pan, then add the garlic and onion.  Stir them around and cook them for 3-4 minutes.  Reduce the heat to low, then pour in the rice.  Stir it around and let it cook for about 2 minutes.  Stir in the broth and salt, then add in the juice, and a little of the lime zest.  Cover and cook the rice 20-25 minutes.  Stir it once or twice, very important, to keep it from sticking.  Sprinkle on the rest of the zest, then serve. 
We ate ours with PW's Chimichurri Shrimp and Black Beans, recipes coming soon :).
