Chicken with spicy sauce. Boil the water and remove the feathers. Burn it after removing the feathers, put it in clean water, wash it, cut out its nails; then wash its intestines in another clean pot. Pour water and some bacon onto the pot, let the bacon cook; then slice the chicken, boil it with the bacon; boil the bacon until tender, then slice it, add some onions or tarragon, add some parsley leaves and lemon. When it's time, add black pepper, saffron and ginger, and when serving it, put the lemon on the table, the meat into the plate, then put the egg barley onto the meat. Serve it when it's hot.
