Chicken-Matzo Soup



Make This First

You'll Need

Hand mixer


  1. Add stock to large stockpot on MEDIUM; bring to simmer. Cook about 1 hour until reduced by one-fourth. Add mirepoix; bring back to simmer. Cook 12-15 minutes or until mirepoix veggies are tender. 
  2. Whisk together shortening and egg yolks in large bowl. Fold in matzo. Sprinkle 6 Tbsp ice water over matzo mixture, stirring with a fork to blend. Set aside.
  3. Whip egg whites to a soft peak with hand mixer. Gently fold into matzo mixture. Cover; chill in fridge 30 min - 1 hour.
  4. Add shredded chicken to stock.
  5. Bring pot of salted water to simmer as you form matzo balls. Make 15 matzo balls by rolling about 1/4 cup dough into golf-ball-size balls with wet hands. Add to simmering water. (Do not let water come to a full boil.) Cover; cook about 12 min or until internal temp of matzo ball reaches 165 degrees. Check by inserting thermometer halfway into thickest part of matzo ball. Remove matzo balls with slotted spoon.
  6. Add matzo balls to stockpot; season with salt and pepper and serve.
Chef Tips
  • Make sure to continuously dip your hands in cold water while forming matzo balls.
  • For a denser matzo ball, poach in chicken stock (this will cloud stock).
  • Choose Kosher for Passover ingredients to ensure that this recipe is appropriate for your Passover table.
