  • Pour the 2 quarts chicken stock into a large pot and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.

  • Meanwhile, form small, 1 to 2 inch diameter balls using the chilled matzo mixture. Place the balls in the chicken stock, reduce heat to medium, and simmer until matzo balls are cooked through, 45 to 60 minutes.
