This is an excerpt from The Good Housewife's Jewell
(England, 1596)

To frie Chickins. Take your chickins and let them boyle in verye good  
sweete broath a prittye while, and take the chickens out, and quarter  
them out in peeces, and then put them into a frying pan with sweete  
butter, and let them stewe in the pan, but you must not let them be  
browne with frying, and then put out the butter out of the pan, and  
then take a little sweete broath, and as much Vergice, and the yolkes  
of two Egges, and beate them together, and put in a little Nutmegges,  
synamon and Ginger, and Pepper into the sauce, and then put them all  
into the pan to the chickens, and stirre them together in the pan, and  
put them into a dish, and serue them vp.
