Matzoh Ball Soup Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 2)
Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2007
Either people love this soup or don't care for it at all, depending largely on their taste for dill. The opinions of my family and friends are split down the middle. I do use organic, free range chicken broth and Manishewitz mix for the Matzoh Balls, as suggested by other reviewers (thank you for your suggestions).

Original review 7/9: This is basically a good recipe, Holly. But grebenes and schmaltz? Why would anyone want to make life so difficult? For the Matzoh Balls, I just used the Manishewitz mix. They come out perfect every time. Follow the package instructions, cook separately and add to the soup at the end. As to the soup, I did add the chicken back to mine. I added twice as many carrots, and 3 stalks of celery. I added the whole onions at this point, and removed before serving. Cut the amount of dill by half, added seasoned salt, garlic powder, turmeric, a bay leaf and dried parsley. And found I needed to add a couple of Tbsps. Chicken Flavored Better than Boullion to bring out the flavor. Otherwise, and without the extras, it would have been a very bland soup. Thank you. Update 10/13: I just wanted to add that my husband, the Wisconconite, could eat this soup every week, and in fact, drives me crazy with his constant requests for it. Go figure!

Here is how to make this recipe easy, very easy, and tasty: Use chicken broth (preferably organic), use Swanson pre-cooked, cubed chicken in a pouch (perfect chicken and no draining required). I add garlic and a bay leaf for additional flavor. You can also use egg whites to lower the cholesterol count whne making the Matzo Balls. There now its perfect, easy and fast!

Yuck! This was a terrible soup. The chicken soup itself was flavorless and the matzo balls were gross! I made a kishka bread along with it and it was terrible too. Blech!

This was very good. I actually made this just with 4 chicken breasts rather than a whole chicken and it turned out quite good. My guests all enjoyed it also.

Though this soup was certainly tasty, it did take a very long time to make. Next time I make this soup I will try to shorten the recipe and cooking time by using chicken broth, and not cooking a whole chicken.
