  1. Soak rice in 250ml water for 6 to 8 hours. Drain.
  2. Bring 250ml water to the boil in a small saucepan. Stir in drained rice. Boil until water level dips below rice, 10 minutes. Set aside.

  4. In a large pot, combine chicken soup, milk, chicken mixture, carrots, almonds, 75g butter and parsley. Bring to the boil, stirring, then reduce heat to low and stir in rice. Simmer, uncovered, 15 minutes, stirring occasionally and adding more water or milk to thin if needed. Serve at once.
