Chicken and Red Bean Soup

It has been a while since I made some chicken soup and I have been dying for some. So I raid my pantry to find some almost forgotten red beans (sorry, red beans) and the fridge for some carrots and tomatoes. And since I just bought one free range chicken from the market, I am ready to make some yummy soup. ♥
