does anyone have any good homemade chicken soup recipes?

i have a whole chicken simmering and want to add matzo balls. i’ve been using search engines for recipes, but i’m not too crazy about most of them. i don’t know when to add the matzo balls either. thanks
i don’t want rice or noodles. i don’t want chicken pieces parts. i have a whole chicken and vegetables simmering. that’s one of the recipes i saw on a search engine. how long should my concoction simmer? when do i add the matzo balls?

    Chicken Chunks.
    Rice.
    Diced Carrot.
    Diced Celery/Sliced Leek.
    Diced Onion .(medium)
    More Vegetables.
    Add all except the Rice and Extra Vegetables to a decent sized pot or stock pot.
    Stir fry until the chicken has a little colour and the other vegetables are soft.
    Add a little water to de glaze the pot and add as much for the size you want. (2 litres)
    Bring to a boil and add rice. Return to boil then reduce to a rolling simmer.
    Go through the freezer and take out all of those part bags vegetables and add.
    Go through the fridge and look for what else to add.
    Stir from time to time.
    The rice will absorb a lot of liquid so that may need to be topped up.
    Season to taste, and plate up.
    Serve with Garlic Bread.

    Matzo balls take about 20 minutes to cook.

    You may want to omit the rice if you wish.

    The fun of cooking your own soup is making up a special home made recipe. I love making chicken soup and often find myself in a fowl mood.

    Here is what I do.

    Bake or grill the chicken, sans skin
    Once cooked, I cut it into smaller chunks.

    Slice onions, carrots, celery and some parsnips if you like.

    Roast some garlic and jalapenos, chop them up and add to the soup early on so the hot spices meld well with the broth..

    Chop up some parsley and add some chicken broth to taste

    Add pasta noodles or rice or just make some dumplings.

    I also add Italian seasonings to it as well and I grind them up to make it more favorable as well.

    EDIT
    Your Matzo balls will not take long, maybe a half hour. You can add them within a half an hour before you eat when the chicken is almost done. Is your chicken being cooked raw by boiling it? The time needed will vary by how big the chicken is. The only real way to see is to cut or slice open parts of it. Start after one hour to see how well it is doing. Skim off the gunk when boiling a raw chicken.

    Chicken Soup a la Florence
    I use chicken bones because no one in the house likes boiled chicken meat.
    In the grocery there are packaged chicken carcasses.
    3 or 4 carcasses will make a pot of chicken soup
    3 whole peeled carrots
    2 celery stalks or 1/2 of 4 inch diameter sized celery root peeled
    1 medium whole onion
    Chicken powdered soup base
    12 to 16 cups water.
    Bring water, chicken bones whole onion and veggies sliced in large chunks ,to boil in a soup pot.
    Boil for about 1 hour on medium
    Drain boiled soup through a fine sieve into a large holding container or bowl to hold clear liquid soup
    throw away boiled onion and chicken bones rinse all vegetables
    clean up soup pot and pour liquid soup and veggies back into the pot
    Add Soup base– approx.1 tsp for each cup of water that you made the soup with , but taste soup liquid to your liking.
    Make your Matzo Balls in boiling salted water and cook for about 30 minutes until done, not right in the soup. They do expand when cooked.
    Drain water out from the matzo balls when they are cooked.
    You can store balls in a container and add 2 or 3 to each soup bowl or to big soup pot to heat up before serving
    Matzo Balls Recipe
    2 large eggs
    2 Tbsp. oil
    3/4 cup matzo meal

    In large bowl, beat eggs with oil and until well blended. Stir in remaining ingredients. Place in refrigerator for 1/2 hour. Mixture should have absorbed and become firm. Bring salted pot of water to boil. Wet hands and roll mixture in walnut sized balls or(ping-pong ball if you want the giant fill up the whole bowl ones) . Double recipe for the big ones. Cover. Cook for 30 minutes without looking at them. on medium Pull out a tester ball, cut it in half and see if it is cooked all the way through. If it is not leave for 5 more minutes.

    Hmm..I have never even tried Matzo balls..but it sounds yummy! Sorry!
    Anyway, I just hope this is for your son. He would love homemade soup. I really do miss hearing about him and his lucrative career too. I hope he’s doing well.
    Good luck with your balls and your son!
