Rice Pilaf

This is my mom's recipe. It is so good, I could eat a plate of this for dinner and be very happy. It is my favorite side dish that my mom makes. I usually double or triple this for my family of 6, it allows for leftovers. When I double or triple the recipe I don't increase the butter by as much as the other ingredients. (For a triple recipe, I use 1 1/2 the amount of butter).

Saute rice, onion and garlic in butter. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
