Matzo Ball Green Chili Chicken Soup

JoSele Swopes


My sister got me hooked on this recipe of course I have made changes since by experimenting...Matzo Balls are a Jewish Dumpling...This is great for the wintry or just a cool day...Sometimes if I am just feeling under the weather or someone in the house is sick I will make this....My sister serves this during Pass Over too....or Hanukkah...

How to Make Matzo Ball Green Chili Chicken Soup


  • 1Combine 1 3/4 cups chicken broth, matzo meal, 2 tablespoons minced onion, oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, yolks, and 1 minced garlic clove, stirring well. Cover and chill 1 hour.
  • 2While matzo mixture chills, combine 5 1/4 cups broth, 1/4 teaspoon salt, chopped onion, and next 9 ingredients (chopped onion chicken breast); bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 1 hour, skimming surface as needed. Remove chicken; reserve for another use. Strain broth mixture through a colander into a large bowl; discard solids. Return broth to pan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer.
  • 3Slightly dampen your hands each time you shape your Matzo Balls Divide matzo mixture evenly into 24 (1 1/2-inch) balls. Gently drop balls into simmering broth. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 5 minutes or until done (matzo balls will rise to surface). Remove from heat; stir in dill.
