To make a white fricassee of chicken, remove skin, cut them up into pieces of desired size. Season with salt, pepper, nutmeg, and mace, and strew over the pieces some shredded marjoram. Put them into a stewpot, and pour over them the cream, or whole milk. Add some butter rolled in flour, and if you choose, some small forcemeat balls. Set the stew pan over a low flame.
