Matzo Ball Soup


These much-loved dumplings, made from ground unleavened matzo cracker, are a favorite during Passover. Chicken thighs and drumsticks flavor the broth but aren't included in the soup. Use them to make chicken salad later.

1 1/2 cups unsalted matzo meal

2 tablespoons minced fresh onion

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

1/2 teaspoon salt, divided

2 large egg yolks

1 garlic clove, minced

4 cups chopped onion

4 cups water

1 1/2 cups chopped carrot

1 1/2 cups chopped celery

8 thyme sprigs

8 parsley sprigs

4 chicken thighs, skinned (about 1 1/3 pounds)
