Place the chicken in a skillet and cook until it is no longer pink. Cut into shreds.
In a large pot, combine chicken stock, water and chicken. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Add the rice but do not add the seasoning. Set seasoning aside. Remove from heat and cover.
In a small bowl, add the salt, pepper and the flour. Stir to mix. Set aside.
In a small saucepan, melt butter. Stir in the seasoning packet, cooking until it begins to bubble. Reduce heat to low and stir in the flour mixture.
Using a whisk, add the cream a little bit at a time. Stir completely. Allow to cook about 5 minutes or until the sauce thickens.
Add the cream mixture to the broth and rice. Cook over medium heat until hot, about 10 to 15 minutes.
Serve with warm bread and butter.
