Submitted by: JUICYSWEETS

Introduction

This is the best matzo ball soup and a very filling meal. The soup the matzo balls and roasted chicken is a great way to warm up on a chilly day:) For all of you who are a little weary about matzo soup trust me it's amazing!! I made it for my boyfriend who did not look pleased to say the least..he tried it and said oh my this is INCREDIBLE!!
about 2 ladles full of broth and 3 matzo balls will be 1 serving...with a piece of two of chicken..i calculated serving for matzo meal by entering the 1/4 cup serving on the box and then adding 4 servings to the recipe (1 cup)
Please read all ingredients and try to make matzo balls while your soup is cooking so everything can be ready together. If you fall a lil behind no problem just be sure to cook the chicken for only 10 minutes. The soup and matzo balls can sit on the stove it wont ruin them.

Directions

SOUP:
rinse the chicken and place in a large pot.
fill the pot a little more than halfway with water.
Bring to a rolling boil and then reduce to a slow boil.
For about ten minutes at the slow boil the chicken will release a foam to the top of the water, continue to skim this until the liquid is clear.
Add all the vegetables and again bring water to a rolling boil.
As soon as the water is boiling reduce to a slow boil a little more than a simmer.
Cover and let cook for about an hour to an hour and fifteen minutes.
When the soup is done remove chicken from pot with a slotted spoon (it is verrryyyy tender) place on a flat baking sheet and set aside.
Strain vegetables from water and add to a blender with a little liquid from the pot.
Blend until creamy -***PLEASE cover your top with a towel and hold down while blending liquid is extremely hot NO BURNS PLEASE****
Return to pot and stir.....Ready to serve.

Matzo Balls: makes about 16-18 matzo balls
melt 4 tbs of butter in a small bowl
add 1/4 cup of very cold water to the butter (you don't want to curdle your eggs:)
in a large bowl beat 4 eggs (remove white goo
thats attached to yolk, with a fork)
Add butter water mix to eggs- stir
Add 1 cup of streitz matzo meal
Stir well - cover with plastic and place in fridge for 30 minutes.
Get a large pot of water boiling while the matzo is cooling.
Remove bowl from fridge ( have a cup with icecold water close by)
take a tablespoon of mix and form into small golf sized balls. (they really puff up so no larger than that)
drop in boiling water as you form the ball
dip tbs in water in between balls it will keep it from sticking to your spoon
If any are on the bottom just give a quick stir they will float right up and they wont sink down again.
after you have made all your matzo balls continue to boil for 20 minutes.
They are ready to be put in your soup:)

Chicken:
Preheat oven to 500 degrees
sprinkle salt pepper and garlic salt on chicken
place in oven for 10 minutes about 4 inches from coil.
Eat right away:) This chicken falls off the bone it's amazing
