  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. 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.

  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.
