Paleo Italian Tomato Chicken Soup

10-12 chicken tender loins or 4-5 chicken breast thawed and chopped
1 12 oz can organic no salt added tomato sauce
1 12 oz can organic no salt added diced tomatoes drained or 2 ripe tomatoes diced and drain excess liquid
1 Tbsp each, Basil, Oregano, Thyme
1 tsp  each black pepper, garlic powder, Rosemary and Marjoram
1 Tbsp fresh minced garlic
1 12-15 oz package of organic baby spinach washed and patted dry

All seasonings can be adjusted as needed

Spray a crockpot with oil of choice
Place thawed chicken in the crockpot, lightly season with pepper
Pour in sauce and tomatoes
Add all seasonings so it covers all of the sauce, you are not stirring it in yet
Cook on low for about 4 hours, stir well
Add spinach and stir well again
Cook for an additional hour or until the chicken is cooked through (my crockpot cooks faster than most, so you may need to cook for 5 hours before stirring and adding spinach).
Optional- when you add the spinach if you want more broth, add 1/2 to 1 cup organic reduced sodium vegetable or chicken broth (you may want to add a little more garlic powder, basil or oregano to boost the low sodium broths)
Optional, serve with vegan mozzarella cheese melted on top
