This is my favorite chicken soup recipe. It requires a good number of ingredients, but it's worth it. I pretty much follow the directions, except I add a little more sambuca (to taste), and my husband does not eat spinach or cheese, so I divide the soup in half at that point, and add half the amount of spinach to just my half of the soup, and garnish my portions with the cheese. This is a great winter comfort food.
