Chicken and Rice Soup

Today was a cool rainy day, so I made a big pot of chicken and rice soup. It has always been one of John's favorites and once again, he loved it! There is nothing like homeade hot soup on a cool evening. Served with hot buttered french bread and some vegetables, it was the perfect end to a great day.
  Chicken and Rice Soup

1 whole chicken
1 whole stalk chopped celery ( Yes, the entire bundle of celery)
Shredded Carrots ( I buy the pre shredded carrots in the bag and I use about 3/4 of the bag)
1 whole onion, chopped
1/2 cup Rice (or more) (use long grain rice, not minute rice)
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste

Place whole chicken in a large pot. Cover with water. Boil for at least 45 min to an hour until done. Make sure you keep it covered with water while it's boiling. Remove chicken from pot and set aside to cool. In the chicken stock, place celery, carrots, onion, rice, salt and pepper. Shred up the chicken and place the shredded chicken meat back into the soup pot. Cook until vegetables are tender and serve!
