Chicken Provencal Soup

Let’s talk about this soup.  Chicken provencal soup is one of my most favorite soups. It’s based on a Rachael Ray recipe and I’ve been making it for years, although I hadn’t made it for quite some time.  

I’m not sure why I forgot about it, but now that I’ve rediscovered it, chicken provencal soup will definitely be back on our regular dinner rotation.

When my kids were younger and still living at home, I used to make this soup ALL the time.  It’s very quick and easy to make, so it was a great meal for those busy nights when they all had activities.  I would often make it in the afternoon while they were still at school and then just let it simmer on stove until we were ready to eat.

 The combination of white wine and herbes de Provence are wonderful, but what really puts this one over the top for me is the olive tapenade that you stir into your bowl right before you dig in.  

The tapenade gives this soup a great salty, briny flavor that brings everything together.  I love Trader Joe’s tapenade, but any tapenade that you like will be delicious.

As I said, this soup is quick and easy to make, but it tastes really special.  That makes it perfect for casual entertaining, as well.  Pair this soup with a simple green salad and a nice white wine and you’ve got a company worthy meal. 

Finally, whether you’re making this soup for your family or for guests, make sure you serve this with some good crusty bread, because you want to soak up every last drop!
