Lemon Chicken and Rice Soup

I had a good bit of chicken and chicken broth left over from my chicken crock pot meal, so I decided to make a soup today. 

Lemon Chicken and Rice Soup

1 tbsp. butter (optional)
3 cups chicken broth
2 cups water
2-3 cooked and shredded chicken breasts
¾ cup frozen peas
¾ cup frozen carrots or chopped fresh carrots
juice of 2 lemons
1 cup brown rice

Melt butter in large pot on stove.  Add chicken and coat in butter.  Add chicken broth, water, chicken, peas, carrots, lemon juice and rice.  Set on low and cover.  Let it cook for about an hour, stirring occasionally.  Add water or milk as needed.
