  1. Soup: Cut onion in quarters leaving skin on for flavor and color in the stock.
  2. In a large 16 qt. kettle, place the chicken, onions, garlic, celery, carrots, garlic, parsley, black pepper and water. Slowly simmer for one and a half uncovered. Season with salt and pepper if desired.
  3. Remove the onion skins from soup. Remove the chicken from the broth and use for other recipes but shred about 2 cups of chicken breast to garnish the soup.
  4. Matzo Balls (make ahead): In a large bowl, mix eggs with chicken fat or oil, club soda and salt. Add matzo meal and mix. Cover and place in the refrigerator at least 3 hours before so matzos can absorb liquid.
  5. Bring 3 qt. water to a boil and add 2 Tbsp. Kosher salt. Using dampened hands, roll matzo mixture into 16 balls about 1½” in diameter.
  6. Drop them into the boiling liquid as you make them. Cover the pan, and simmer for 30-45 minutes. Transfer the matzo balls to bowls, cover with your soup. Add shredded chicken and fresh parsley if desired. Serve immediately.
