Matzo Balls, Chicken I (M, KLP, TNT)
Source: Judy Ryder, owner of Gran's Goodies List
Serves: Makes 15-20 matzo balls.

1/2 cup matzo meal
2 large eggs
1/4 cup oil
1 pound ground chicken breast
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg (optional, I would think)

Combine matzo meal, eggs and oil. Mix the chicken, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Refrigerate both mixtures separately for about 15 minutes.

Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil. Make balls with a pinch of chicken surrounded by matzo mixture and gently lower into boiling water. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes.

Poster's Notes:
An interesting variation.
