Chicken Provencal "Stoup"

This was the first soup I braved on a weeknight and it quickly became a staple. It is so good everyone will think you've been slaving over a hot stove all day. "Stoup" is a Rachel Ray-ism that means it's chunkier than a soup but not quite a stew from her 30-Minute Meal series. The olive tapenade adds a briny saltiness that tops this stoup off perfectly. You could leave the chicken out and it would be a delicious vegetarian soup - just change your broth accordingly. Please remember to add the extra 1 cup of broth, whatever you choose! Enjoy.
