    Directions

    1. Place stock, water, onion, carrot, celery and bay leaf in a large saucepan on high heat. Bring to a boil. Add chicken and reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer for 15-20 mins or until cooked through. Using a slotted spoon, transfer chicken to a plate. Cool slightly, then shred.
    2. Strain cooking liquid through a fine sieve into a clean saucepan. Discard solids. Bring liquid to a boil on high heat. Add rice and reduce heat to medium. Simmer, uncovered, for 15 mins or until rice is tender. Add chard, lemon juice and shredded chicken. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 2-3 mins or until heated through and chard is wilted. Season. Serve soup with crusty bread.
