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!

  2. Season chicken generously with salt, garlic powder and onion powder; rub skin with about 1 Tbls. olive oil or more if desired.
