Italian Wedding Soup
Sprinkle the chicken with half the salt. Heat the oil in a large stockpot over medium-high heat and add the chicken, half the carrots, celery and onion. Cook 4 to 5 minutes until the chicken skin begins to brown along with the vegetables. Remove the chicken skin and discard it.
Cover chicken with 10 cups of water. Bring to a slow boil, then immediately reduce to a simmer. Add the remaining carrot, celery and onion. Cook 15 to 20 minutes, skimming any foam from the top of the liquid once or twice. Cover and turn off the heat. Rest 30 to 40 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink at the bone.
While the chicken is cooking, prepare the meatballs. Combine the turkey, half the grated cheese, breadcrumbs, garlic, pepper, nutmeg and one of the eggs in a large bowl. Mix well and form into small meatballs about the size of a grape.
In a small bowl, combine egg with the remaining cheese. Drizzle egg mixture through a colander directly into the soup. Stir once or twice.
When chicken is cool enough to handle, remove meat from skin and bones, and cut into small chunks. Return the meat to the soup along with the meatballs and stir in the pasta or quinoa and remaining salt. Serve immediately.
