2 medium carrots, peeled
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, 2 turns of the pan
1 medium zucchini
1 medium red bell pepper, seeded
1 medium yellow skinned onion, peeled and halved
Salt and pepper
1 tbsp. herbes de Provence
1½. lb small red-skinned potatoes
1 cup dry white wine
1 14 oz. can diced tomatoes or coarsely ground Tomatoes
1 quart plus 1 cup chicken stock
1 lb. chicken breasts, diced
2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
Crusty bread, to pass

Heat a soup pot over medium high heat. Chop carrots into 1/4-inch dice and add to pot, then add garlic, and stir to coat in olive oil. Chop to 1/4-inch dice and drop in the zucchini, pepper and onion. Season all the veggies with salt and pepper and herbes de Provence. Cook the veggies together 5 minutes. While they cook, cut potatoes into thin wedges. Add wine to veggies and reduce a minute or so. Add the tomatoes, cut potatoes, and stock to the pot, cover and raise heat to high. Bring the stoup to a boil, then add cut chicken and simmer 8 to 10 minutes, until potatoes are just tender and chicken is cooked through. Serve stoup in shallow bowls and top with chopped parsley. Pass bread for dipping and mopping.

This is one of the first recipes I learned to make post-college. It's survived the test of time. Also a fun recipe to play with, adding different veggies and spices to suit your mood. KEB
