  • Summary

    Any fat from the consommé can be used to make the matzo balls. If you need to purchase chicken fat, it's available in the freezer section of some supermarkets. Look for fresh lemongrass in supermarkets and Asian markets.

    Ingredients

    • 2 (3 3/4–4-pound) chickens, quartered
    • 4 whole lemongrass stalks, halved lengthwise, cut into 3-inch pieces
    • 2 celery stalks, cut into 3-inch pieces
    • 2 garlic cloves, peeled, halved
    • Peel of 1 large lime, cut off in strips with vegetable peeler
    • 1/2 large white onion
    • 1 6- to 7-inch piece large leek (white and pale green parts only), halved lengthwise
    • 1 1-inch-long piece fresh ginger, peeled, halved
    • 1 tablespoon (or more) fresh lemon juice
    • 4 large eggs
    • 1/3 cup finely chopped leek (white and pale green parts only)
    • 1/3 cup chicken fat (reserved from consommé or purchased), melted, cooled
    • 2 tablespoons chicken broth or club soda
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons coarse kosher salt
