used lime zest and cilantro instead of lemon zest and parsley and it came out very good! used it on tacos with crock pot "roasted" chicken, salsa, and avocado....repeat recipe!

This was great! Used olive oil in place of butter...still great!!! Great accompaniment to my grilled chicken which uses the juice of the lemon!

Tried this tonight and what a great success! I only had minced garlic so I used that and used zested lemon instead of grated. I liked the color and texture it gave to the recipe. I only wish I had some leftovers!

I was surprized once again. This was EXCELLENT!! Even my six yr old king of picky eaters had seconds and called dibs on any left for tomorrow. I used cilantro instead of italian parsley and loved the flavor. Fresh and the blend was just right,TY Bev!

Very good rice! Didn't have cooker, so did it on the stovetop. Used the butter to saute little extra onion and celery, used dash of soy instead of salt. Was a great side to my marmalade chicken.

Fantastic rice dish. I subbed low sodium stock, but this went perfectly with the two shrimp dishes i made tonight. I adore lemon and this is a great and easy way to have it.

As I don't have a rice cooker, I followed cookiedog's instructions and your rice came out perfect!! I made as is but added some lemon juice at the end. Will be making this again and again! Thanks Bev!

Incredible flavor!!! I loved this rice. I adapted it to make on the stovetop since I don't have a rice cooker. I just put in the first 4 ingredients brought it to a boil and then covered it, reduced the heat to low and cooked it 12 minutes. After 12 min. I quickly took off the lid and added the remaining ingredients, stirred briefly, replaced the lid and covered it until the rest of dinner was ready. The result was a fabulous side dish.This is a keeper!

Great recipe! I doubled the garlic (we like garlic!) otherwise followed exactly. Delicious! Served it as a side with roast chicken. Big hit! Next time, I am going to add toasted pine nuts. I am going to try cilantro instead of parsley for a change but it's absolutely great as is.
