Ingredients
  • 1 fowl
  • 1 cupful milk
  • 1 cupful chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoonfuls butter
  • 2 tablespoonfuls flour
  • Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoonful pepper
  • 1 egg-yolk
  • 1 teaspoooful lemon-juice
  • 1 cupful rice
  • Minced parsley
Directions

Cook the fowl until very tender aud. cut into neat attractive servings, rather small, using only the white meat for this dish if you wish it particularly delicate in appearance.

Meanwhile, prepare the Golden Sauee as follows: Melt the butter, add the flour and when bubbling, stir in milk and chicken broth gradually. Cook until smooth and thickened, stirring constantly. Add the pepper and salt as needed, this depending upon the seasoning in the stock. Just before removing from the fire, add the egg-yolk beaten and the lemon juice, stirring rapidly.

Reheat the chicken in a little of the sauce placed in a double-boiler. Arrange it on a hot deep platter
or chop plate, and surround it with a ring of the rice cooked until tender and flaky in plenty of boiling salted water.

SERVING

Pour more of the sauce over the chicken and serve with minced parsley sprinkled over the rice.
