Introduction
This entry is a re-creation of a recipe from The Prince of Transylvania's Court Cookbook (Hungary, 16th c.), entitled "Hen With Rice". [insert a brief description of dish here, possibly including any or all of the following: characteristics of the final dish, when or how it might have been served, and why you selected it]


The Source Recipe
The original text of the recipe is as follows:

Hen with rice. Do it like you did with the other hens. Once you've taken out the insides, boil the hen, put its stomach and liver next to it, and before you'd make the porridge, clean it; once the hen is tender; add black pepper, nutmeg flower. Put the clean, washed rice onto the meat and cook them together, but don't overcook it; if the hen is not fat, slice some fat bacon, then add water from boiling beef, then make some sauce from sugar and ginger.
