Throw it together soup...

Having one last cold snap(we hope) here in northeast Texas means I have one last time to make a healthy, comfort soup.  This didn't disappoint and was a clean out the fridge and freezer meal bonus!

2-3 quarts turkey or chicken stock(I used both).
2 large boneless/skinless chicken breasts, cubed
1 14 oz can diced tomatoes
1 14 oz can petit diced tomatoes(or 2 cans of the former)
1 small can Rotel sauce(not their diced tomatoes, its like a tomato sauce-use plain or a seasoned kind if you can't find the Rotel) *by the way, all my canned goods are no salt added.
Add some salsa if you feel like it, the Rotel stuff is spicy but not overly so.
1 can black beans, undrained
1 large baking potato, cubed
1 cup brown rice
1 tablespoon spearmint
1-2 teaspoons Balti seasoning(I get mine from Penzey's, LOVE them!)
1 bay leaf
salt and pepper to taste

Cook the chicken in the broth with the tomatoes, Rotel, beans, and potato until tender and done, about 35-45 minutes maybe.  Add rice and seasonings.  Simmer, covered for 2-3 hours total(from adding the chicken).
