  1. Place chicken thighs in the chicken stock in a large pot. Bring to the boil over medium heat; cover and simmer until the chicken thighs are no longer pink at the bone, about 20 minutes. Remove chicken and set aside to cool. Stir in the potatoes, tomatoes, beetroot, carrot, cabbage, onion, garlic, red wine vinegar, tomato puree and bay leaf. Cover and simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, use a fork to remove the chicken and discard the bones. Add chicken to the soup and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
