Servings 4
Author Laura Doerr


  • 2 cups instant brown rice uncooked
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth low sodium
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 tbsps honey
  • 8.5 oz canned corn kernels drained
  • salt
  • black pepper


  1. Bring the chicken broth to a boil in a medium sauce pan. Stir in brown rice. Turn heat to low and cover for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to avoid boiling over. Remove from heat and let sit covered for 5 minutes.

  2. Stir in cream, honey, corn, salt and pepper. Cover and let sit off of the heat for 5-10 minutes. Taste for salt and pepper seasoning. If wanting it sweeter, add more honey, or creamier add more cream.

Recipe Notes

You can make this with instant white rice, but you'll want to follow the cooking instructions on the package. Use chicken broth in place of water for more flavor. For ultimate sticky rice you can use regular white rice (not instant) to get a more authentic sticky rice.

Add in some fresh chopped cilantro for an added flavor boost!
