   10       c            Chicken broth
                         -----CHICKEN BALLS-----
    1       lb           Raw lean ground chicken
    2       sl           Whole grain bread -- crumbled
    3       tb           Parmesan cheese -- grated
    2       tb           Fresh parsley
    1                    Egg -- lightly beaten
    1       t            Garlic -- minced
    1       t            Lemon rind -- grated
      1/4   ts           Nutmeg -- grated
                         Salt and pepper to taste

   1.  In a mixing bowl combine the chicken ball ingredients and mix
   together with your hands until well-combined.  Form into balls the
   size of walnuts.
   
   2.  Bring the broth to a full boil, carefully drop in the balls,
   cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 6 to 7 minutes, or until just
   tender but not overcooked.
   
   3.  Serve the soup hot, garnished with a light sprinkling of Parmesan
   cheese and freshly chopped parsley.
   
   Lean turkey can be substituted for the chicken.
