Prepare ingredients for diet broth from chicken fillet. Clean the carrots, wash, cut into large bars or leave intact (if the root is not large). Onions, along with the husk, are cut into 2-4 pieces. A little onion peel does not hurt: a golden color of the broth is provided. We press garlic cloves with a knife, remove the husks.

Reduce the gas to the minimum, cook 30-40 minutes. We leave the finished chicken breast in hot broth for 15 minutes, then we take out the meat, and filter the liquid through a sieve.
For the soup, chop carrots into small strips, finely chop the onions. Fry vegetables in refined olive oil for 10 minutes.
We chop thin rings the bright part of the stem of a leek. Cut potatoes into small cubes.
Put the browned vegetables in a soup pot, add leeks and potatoes.
Fill the ingredients with filtered chicken broth, cook for 20 minutes on a quiet fire.
Cooked steamed rice separately. First, pour the grits with cold water, rinse several times until the water becomes completely clear. Pour into a saucepan 200 ml of water, add the washed rice. After boiling, close tightly with a lid, cook on low heat for 15 minutes.
