WHAT YOU'LL NEED
1⁄2 rotisserie chicken
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

HOW TO MAKE IT
Remove skin from rotisserie chicken. Pick meat, both white and dark, from the carcass and shred. Reserve 1⁄2 the meat for a future meal.
Heat olive oil over a medium heat in a 4-quart sauce pot. Add the onion, celery, and carrot, and cook until soft, about 5 minutes.

Add the chicken, rice, and the fresh herbs, and simmer for another 5 minutes. Serve hot.
