"Delicious herbs fill the matzo balls with great flavor, and the long-simmered soup is so good. If you make it in a pressure cooker, the chicken soup can be ready in 45 minutes." — joyofkosher

For the Chicken Soup:
1 (2 1/2 to 3 pound)
whole chicken, cut up

carrots, cut into chunks
For the Matzo Balls:
chopped fresh basil
chopped fresh parsley
1 1/2 teaspoons

Exactly what I was looking for! I omitted the dill due to allergies. I simmered my matzo balls for 10 minutes then pulled them out and let them finish cooking in the soup to let them absorb some of the flavors. Don't change a thing otherwise!
Awesome, flavourful recipe. Matzo balls are amazing, and the broth turned out well too, although I left out the dill. Definitely in the regular rotation.
I only used the matzo ball portion of this recipe, as I used my own soup recipe, but wow! My picky family LOVED it :)
