Asian baked rice is my new favorite side dish for teriyaki chicken, sheet pan chicken stir fry, grilled chicken, bacon salmon, and more.
If you have never tried baked rice you need to. It is so easy to make and comes out perfect every time. I love changing it up by using different seasonings and different liquid.
I kept this one simple with chicken broth, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger.

Lynn, this sounds so yummy! I’m curious if you’ve ever made it in a rice cooker?
I haven’t made this exact recipe in the rice cooker, but I have others like it. I don’t think I have ever used a recipe with honey in it in the rice cooker, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. I think you could easily use the same basic recipe and flavors you would just have to adjust the liquid to rice ratio for your rice cooker. If you try it I would love to know how it turns out. I hope that helps.
Just looking at the ingredients, I can imagine that this rice is going to smell like it was cooked in adobo sauce! YUMMY!!
Can brown rice be used?
I haven’t tried it, but I think if you adjusted the liquid and the cooking time it would work fine.
