1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh garlic

1 cup uncooked long grain white rice

2 1/2 cups chicken broth

Melt 1 tablespoon Cinnamon Sugar Butter Spread in 3-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add slivered almonds; cook 2-3 minutes or until almonds are browned and caramelized. Remove from pan, set aside.

Melt additional 1 tablespoon Cinnamon Sugar Butter Spread in same pan over medium heat; add onion and garlic. Cook until softened. Add rice; continue cooking, stir constantly, 2-3 minutes or until lightly browned. Add chicken broth and raisins; cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture comes to a boil.
