Bring the sauce to a boil in a small pan. Mix a little of the hot sauce with the lightly beaten egg yolks then return the mixture to the pan. Cook, stirring constantly and without boiling, until thickened. Add salt to taste. Pour the sauce over the chicken and sprinkle the whole thing with parsley.
