A Stuffed Dish of Chicken (Cooked) in the Oven. Clean a plump chicken and pound its giblets, its liver, and its heart well; add to these ten eggs and spice it and adjust the salt. Stuff the chicken with this and sew it up, put it in a pot and throw on top spices, pepper, salt, and three spoonfuls of oil. Take one spoonful from the stuffing with which you filled the chicken, beat it with three eggs and cover the pot with it, dot it with eggyolks and send it to the oven until it is browned and the stuffing is wrinkled. Take out the chicken onto a dish and put around it the stuffing, garnish it with eggyolks, cut rue over it, sprinkle it with fine spices and present it, God willing: praise be to Him, there is no Lord but He.
