Aromatic apples and vegetables infuse Garlic-Herb Roasted Chicken with amazing flavor. After baking the unpeeled shallots slip easily from their papery skins adding a tasty side note to the sliced chicken.

Tamara's Tips for No-Fail Matzo Balls
1. The matzo ball mixture will be wet and sticky and feel like a thick cornbread batter.
2. Form into balls using the palm of your hand. Don't roll using your fingers.
3. Use wet hands when forming balls. Keep a bowl of water nearby and wet your hands about every 3rd ball.
4. Because some balls may break apart when cooking, prepare them in a separate broth and water mixture then place cooked balls into individual bowls of soup.
