chicken breast (your desired amount - I would use 500g/1 pound)
1 tablespoon butter
2 large carrots
2 sticks celery (optional)
1-2 cups mixed vegetables - eg. corn, beans, fresh or frozen
1 cup chicken broth (or alternatively, 1 cup water with 2 teaspoons chicken stock powder)
6 cups water (can substitute with chicken broth instead if desired)
1/2 cup white rice, uncooked
Place chicken breast in saucepan; cover with water and place over medium heat. Cook until tender and cooked through. Do not discard the water if you wish to use the chicken broth rather than chicken stock powder.
In the meantime, chop onions, carrots and celery. Melt butter in soup kettle/large pan. Saute onion and carrots on low for 4 minutes. Add other vegetables, chicken broth/stock, water, rice and chopped chicken. Bring to the boil, then simmer on medium until vegetables and rice are tender.
Add salt and pepper to taste if desired.
