Cook time: 1 hour
1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 medium yellow onion, diced

1 medium carrot, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
1 russet potatoes, peeled and diced
1.5 cup frozen green beans

Heat a large pot over medium heat, add olive oil. Add onions, carrots, and celery and cook until soft and edges start to brown slightly. Add in garlic and stir, cook for another 2 minutes.
Add remaining vegetables and stir to combine. Add in canned tomatoes, chicken, chicken broth, oregano, thyme, salt, pepper and water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook over low heat, uncovered until vegetables are softened about, 10 minutes.
