Take young grilled chickens, chop them up in little bite-sized pieces. Take fresh eggs, break them, mix them with ground ginger and a little anise, pour this into a solid mortar, which should be hot. Sprinkle the chickens with the same spices you add to the eggs. Put the chickens into a mortar, add saffron, salt to taste, and keep them by the fire.
