Turn the heat to medium and add 1 cup of chicken broth. Allow the rice to cook in the liquid until it's almost completely absorbed, stirring occasionally.
Add the uncooked rice and stir to coat in the olive oil.
In a saucepan or large skillet, heat 2 Tbsp. olive oil on low heat. Add 2 of the minced garlic cloves and allow to cook for 1-2 minutes, until fragrant. (Don't heat the oil too hot or the garlic will burn and become bitter.)
