Lemon Rice

This is a new recipe my husband found. It is a great side dish when serving seafood. We had it with our salmon this week and it was delicious. This is definitely a keeper.

Lemon Rice

1 cup water
1 cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons lemon juice, freshly squeezed
2 teaspoons butter or margarine
1 cup uncooked rice, long grain
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/8-1/4 teaspoon grated lemon, zest of
1 1/4 teaspoons lemon pepper seasoning

Combine all ingredients EXCEPT lemon pepper in saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat.
Cover pot and allow to simmer slowly for 20 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed. Sprinkle with lemon pepper before serving
