  • About

This recipe came from a Norfolk manor house, where it was sometimes served in the nineteenth century ‘to please the children’. Originally, however, it was a farm dish, the hard-boiled eggs being served to the children and the chicken to the adults. However, a piece of chicken and an egg with sauce and rice may be served to each person.
