Creamed Chicken Citron

4lb chicken

1 blade of mace
1 blade of mace
6 peppercorns
1 sprig of tyme
a few parsley stalks
thinly peeled rind of lemon
1/2 level tsp. salt
salt and pepper
2 oz butter
1 1/2 oz flour
1/2 level tsp. curry powder
3/4 - 1pt chicken stock
juice of 1 lemon
1 egg yolk
1/4 pt double cream
coarsely chopped parsley to garnish

Put ingredients 1-8 in a large pan with enough water to cover and bring to the boil. Simmer until chicken is tender (1-1 1/2hrs). Leave chicken to cool in stock. Take from pan and remove meat from bones, discarding skin, and cut in pieces. Chill stock and strain, remove fat. Melt butter for sauce in a clean pan and stir in flour and curry powder, cooking for 1 minute, stirring continuously. Slowly add enough stock to make sauce. Bring to the boil and simmer 2-3 minutes. Blend in lemon juice. Mix egg yolk with 2 tbsp cream and stir into sauce then add rest of cream. Do not allow to boil. Check seasoning and stir in chicken pieces. Turn onto serving dish and garnish with parsley. Serve with rice or pasta and green salad. Can also be served cold, in which case cool sauce, stirring occasionally to prevent skin forming, before mixing with chicken pieces. Serves 6.
