Easy Lemon Chicken and Vegetables


I chose this picture to make you feel warm and fuzzing inside. It reminds us how delicious and satisfying a bowl of chicken soup with matzo balls is at this holiday time (or at any time). You can find the recipe for Just a Jewish Mothers Chicken Soup and Matzo Balls on this website.

This year will be like no other Rosh Hashanah that we can remember. We will not be engaging in our usual holiday activities as we have in years past due to the pandemic. Things will look and feel different. It is my hope that we will create new traditions, ones that will be incorporated into future holiday celebrations.

Wishing you good health and Chag Sameach!

“Chicken Supreme” is one of the easiest dishes that I make and it makes its own gravy! Perfect for a winter dinner, it can also be doubled for a larger group. I’ve made it  with chicken breasts and thighs but it really is works best with chicken legs. Use whatever veggies you have on hand, but always add mushrooms – they help to make the gravy. You can literally pop it in the oven for an hour or so, busy yourself with odds and ends, come back and your dinner will be ready. It’s a “one-pot wonder”!! The Recipe
