In a large pot, heat butter, and olive oil. Sautee onions, celery, and carrots on medium-low 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 heat to poach chicken in cooking liquid. Once the chicken has cooked and become opaque, pour in rice and seasoning packet that came with the rice. Cover and reduce heat to simmer lightly for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
In a small bowl, whisk cold half & half with flour until smooth. Pour into the soup pot and reduce heat completely to low. Cook 10 minutes or until rice is softened completely and soup has thickened.
Taste and season accordingly. Serve hot.
*if using rotisserie chicken, you'll add that in during step 3 with the half & half and flour.
