Directions

1. For the soup Combine chicken, broth, water, onion, carrot, celery, and garlic in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat. Skim off foam that rises to surface. Add parsley, dill, thyme, and peppercorns; reduce heat to very low and simmer gently until flavors develop, about 1 1/2 hours.
2. Transfer chicken to a cutting board. Strain broth into a clean container; skim off fat, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Discard solids. Remove and discard skin from chicken; pull meat off bones and return to broth.
3. For the matzo balls: Combine egg, oil, dill, and scallion in a small bowl. Beat with a fork, then stir in matzo until well blended. Cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
4. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil overhigh heat. With wet hands, shape matzo mixture into 16 balls, using 1 level teaspoon for each, and drop balls into water. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer until cooked through, about 15 minutes. Reheat soup. With a slotted spoon, transfer matzo balls to soup and serve.
