Add the onions, garlic and celery to the oil remaining in the pot, stir, cover and reduce heat to loosen all browned bits from the bottom of the pot. Add the carrots and chard stems. Cook until softened. Return the chopped chicken to the pot. Add the tomato puree and chicken stock. Bring to boil then simmer ten minutes. Add the chopped chard leaves.
