You don't - industrial manufacturers do. What you can do is make "Cream of Chicken Soup" or something similar, and let it simmer until it is the thickness and consiste…ncy that you want. You must be careful when simmering thick liquids not to let the bottom burn. Keep stirring while it evaporates and you should be alright. * 1 large chicken * 1 small knuckle of veal (optional) * 3 quarts of chicken stock or water * 1/4 pound of rice * 1 bunch of parsley * 1 clove garlic * 1/2 teaspoonful of celery seed * 1 cup of whipping or heavy cream * salt and pepper to taste Put the chicken, veal and rice into 3 quarts of water, And a bouquet-garni of with, parsley, garlic, and the celery seed, tied in a cheesecloth bag. Boil gently until the chicken is thoroughly done, skimming any 'scum' from the surface while it is boiling. Take out the veal bone, and chop the chicken and fully cooked rice coarsely in a food processor or blender, moistening it with a little of the stock. Return the chicken and rice mixture to the stock, season with salt and pepper, * At this point you can simmer for as long as you need to get the consistency right. Just before serving, add the cream and heat thoroughly, but do not boil. = = = You can use a cooked chicken if you have a lot of meat left on it., but it won't take as long to boil, and it won't need skimming.
