Directions:
In a large pot, heat butter and olive oil. Saute onions, celery and carrots on medium heat for 10 minutes to soften. Season vegetables with salt and pepper. Pour in chicken broth and cubed raw chicken. Raise temperature to medium high to poach chicken in cooking liquid. Once chicken has cooked and become opaque, pour in rice and seasoning packet. Cover and reduce heat to simmer lightly for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. In small bowl whisk cold half and half with flour until smooth. Pour into soup pot and reduce heat completely to low. Cook 10 minutes or until rice is softened completely and soup has thickened slightly. Taste and season accordingly. Serve hot.
