chicken w/ lemon and oranges

2 1/2 lbs chicken or capon, cut into serving pieces

Add the chicken stock, rosewater, and wine and simmer for 20 minutes!. Add the fruit, salt, and mace!. Place the peppercorns in a cheesecloth bag and add to the stock (the cheesecloth isn't strictly neccessary, but biting unsuspectedly into a peppercorn or clove can be an unsettling experience)!. Continue to simmer for another 15 minutes, or until the chicken is tender!. Remove the cheesecloth bag containing the peppercorns and cloves!. Serve in a large bowl with strips of fried bread!.

candied anise (I've never found it, but I'm told it exists)

Put the almond milk into a pan, and cook the rice in it with the salt, butter, and brown sugar!. Meanwhile, dice the chicken breasts!. Just before the rice is done, add the chicken!. Stir to distribute the chicken pieces, and finish cooking the rice!. Just before serving, garnish with the toasted almonds (and candied anise, if you could find any)!.
