    1. Melt half the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add sweetcorn, peas and carrots, and saute for 3 to 5 minutes, until soft. Remove from pan and set aside.
    2. Add rice and remaining butter to pan. Fry rice for 2 or 3 minutes, until translucent, but not brown.
    3. Return the vegetables to the pan with the rice. Add the chicken stock and milk. Bring to the boil, reduce heat to low and cover. Cook for 20 minutes, until rice is soft and liquid absorbed.
    4. Fluff rice with a fork, cover again and let stand 5 minutes before serving.
