Bring the chicken broth and water to a boil and add the veggies, rice and seasoning packet.  Cook until veggies are tender.  Add the chicken.  On medium heat, add the milk.  Whisk the flour into the melted butter and add it to the soup by whisking it all in until completely smooth.  Season with salt and pepper.  Turn the soup down to low for at least 15 minutes or until ready to serve.  

Note: The chicken can be substituted with turkey.  This soup is a great way to use up your leftover turkey from Thanksgiving!
