Chicken with Rice

Cut up a chicken and stew gently for ten minutes in a little water.
Add two ounces of butter, salt, pepper, mace and a green pepper,
chopped very fine, stew until done.
Make a form of boiled rice around a dish and lay the chicken in
the middle of it. Add to the sauce a good piece of butter with a
teaspoonful of flour rubbed into it and boil two minutes. Take from
the fire and stir in the yolk of three eggs, beaten with a half cup of
rich cream. Pour over the chicken and serve.
