Remove the chicken with a slotted spoon and set aside. Remove and discard the chicken feet.

Strain the soup into a clean pot, reserving carrots (discard remaining vegetables). Return carrots to soup and add the pre-cooked (and hot) matzo balls. Serve with dill and parsley as garnish.

Matzo Balls

Makes 12 to 15.

Note: These are light and tender thanks to the beaten egg whites, but because of their delicate texture, they may not be perfectly round. Do NOT lift the top off the pot while the matzo balls are cooking as this causes them to shrink, become dense and taste undercooked. Chicken fat is available from most Byerly’s and Lunds stores, as well as at Clancy’s Meats in Minneapolis (and perhaps other butchers).
