This meal is Jewish penicillin--it'll cure anything. My grandmother liked to make this hearty version. My mother, though, prefers to reserve the chicken and vegetables for a later use and serves a clear broth with her matzo balls.

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring chicken and 4 quarts cold water to a boil over medium-high heat. Remove foam with a slotted spoon as it rises to the top. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 1 hour.

Step 2

Add celery and next 6 ingredients. Tie parsley and dill sprigs together, and add to soup. Cover and simmer 2 more hours or until chicken is tender.

Step 3

Remove chicken, and let cool. Skim fat. Remove chicken from bones, and return meat to soup. Add matzo balls, and serve.
