Put stock in a medium saucepan. Add optional butter and/or olive oil. Add vegetables. Add salt and freshly ground pepper. Simmer until vegetables are tender. This is a clear soup. If you want the soup to be slightly thicker, you can mash some veggies (right in the pot) with a potato masher or put half of the veggies in a blender or food processor and puree briefly, then return to soup. Add the diced chicken last. Reheat if needed. Adjust seasonings and serve.
