Chicken & Rice Soup


Thursday this last week I roasted a chicken in about an hour.  Then took the girls to ballet.  Kevin came home and made some rice.  So today with the leftovers, Orla and I put this soup together.  
I chopped 3 stalks of celery and a 1/4 of an onion.  Into the pan with 2 tbsp of butter and olive oil.
  We added some thyme and oregano,  sliced carrots (3) and 2 cloves of garlic.  Sauteed it until the celery and onions were tender.  
Then we added 2 carttons of chicken broth and rice (1 1/2 cups), then brought it to a boil,   adding some salt and pepper.  
Then we added our leftover chicken and let it simmer about 10 minutes.  To finish it off we added some fresh parsley from our herb garden and wild chives Orla gathered from the park.  

Voila, yummy delicious!!
