Place chicken, seasonings and bouillon cube in a 3 qt. saucepan with enough water to cover. Simmer for 20-25 minutes, or until chicken is done. Remove chicken, de-bone is necessary, and slice into small chunks. Return to broth.
Add vegetables and chicken broth, and add as much water as needed to cover. Cook for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Add more bouillon cubes and a hint of hot sauce, if more flavor is desired.
About 15 minutes before ready to serve, add rice and water as needed. If thicker soup is desired, make a paste with 2-3 tsp. cornstarch or flour and 1/2 cup of water. Stir the mixture, until you see no lumps. Add gradually to the soup, stirring as you do.
