Sharing traditions — You don’t have to be Jewish to enjoy some delicious foods that are a traditional part of Passover meals. Enjoy the following recipe using matzo, an unleavened cracker, and a variety of fruit and nuts as fine accompaniments to any spring meal.

Ingredients

Preparation

To make matzo balls, follow the directions on the package. Roll them out and reserve in the refrigerator until ready to cook.

Heat the chicken stock over medium-high heat. Add a pinch of salt and pepper, parsley stems, thyme, fennel seeds, garlic and red pepper flakes. Add the chicken legs, wings and thighs (bone-in) to the stock and cook, gently simmering, with the lid slightly ajar. After 30 minutes, add the breast meat and cook for another 10 minutes until cooked through. Strain the chicken out of the broth and set aside to cool.

Reheat the strained broth over medium-high heat, then add onion, carrot, celery, optional fennel and matzo balls. Cover the pot and cook at a gentle simmer for approximately 30 minutes, until the matzo balls are cooked through and fluffy.

Pull the chicken meat off the bone. Add the shredded chicken and parsley to the soup and season to taste.
