22 - Outra receita de galinha mourisca. Façam em pedaços uma galinha bem gorda, e levem-na ao fogo brando, com duas colheres de sopa de gordura, algumas fatias de toucinho, bastante coentro, um punhadinho de salsa, umas folhinhas de hortelã, sal e uma cebola bem grande. Abafem-na e deixem-na dourar, mexendo-a de vez em quando. Em seguida cubram essa galinha com água, e assim que levante fervura acabem de temperá-la com sal, vinagre, cravo-da-índia, açafrão, pimenta-do-reino e gengibre. Logo que a galinha esteja cozida, derramem dentro 4 gemas batidas. Tomem uma travessa funda, forrada com fatias de pão e derramem por cima a galinha.

Another recipe for moorish chicken. Cut a very fat chicken into pieces, and cook it over low heat, with two soupspoons of fat, a few slices of bacon, lots of cilantro, a bit of parsley, a few mint leaves, salt and a very large onion. Cover it (? abafar means to stiffle, smother, etc) and let it brown, stirring once in a while. Next cover that chicken in water, and as soon as it reaches a boil finish seasoning it with salt, vinegar, cloves, saffron, black pepper and ginger. When the chicken is cooked, add 4 beaten egg yolks. Take a deep serving tray, lined with bread slices and put the chicken over top.
