In a large soup pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high heat. Add sliced chicken and cook medium-high heat until browned on both sides. The chicken does not have to be cooked all the way through, as it will continue to cook in the soup.

Add chopped tomatoes, red kidney beans, fresh spinach, and minced garlic to the pan.
Add chicken broth and water. Add ½ teaspoon of oregano and ½ teaspoon basil.
Bring to boil and then simmer for about 20-30 minutes until the carrots are soft and the chicken is completely cooked through. Season with salt to taste.
