Lemon Chicken and Rice Soup

I love this soup.  Love it.  And it's so easy.

1 cup rice
juice of one lemon and water to equal 2 cups.  (For me it was 1 3/4 cup water and 1/4 cup lemon juice)
zest of one lemon
Make rice as you usually would.  I used my rice cooker.

Saute 1 small onion in 2 TBSP olive oil
Add 3 carrots diced
2 celery stalks, diced
6 cups chicken stock (home made is always best.  I cheat and use bullion cubes)
2 cups diced cooked chicken (I used half a roasted chicken from the store)
Bring to a boil, then let simmer until vegetables are soft

Add in Lemon rice and simmer until ready to serve.
