Fried Chicken, Maryland Style

Cut up a chicken, and season with salt, pepper and a little mace. Dip
the pieces into beaten egg, then roll in flour and fry in lard and
butter until brown. Take out the chicken and in the pan put a large
piece of butter with a little flour. As soon as it froths up stir in
milk until thick. Let it boil a minute and pour over the chicken.
