My husband and I enjoyed this uniquely seasoned soup. Never would have thought sage and allspice would be that good together, but was so delicious. Wonderful comfort food--healthy and filling. Thanks for sharing this one.

Very good, a little different than my regular chicken soup recipe. I used canned chicken broth instead of water and chicken base. I also put everything in the crockpot and let it cook on medium for 4 hours.
