Hungarian Chicken

Joint a fowl as for fricassee; put it on the fire in enough cold water to cover it; bring it to a boil slowly, and cook until tender. Unless the chicken is quite young this should require from 2 to 3 hours. When it has been simmering about an hour put in a sliced onion, 2 stalks of celery, 3 sprigs of parsley, and a teaspoonful of paprika. When the chicken is done, arrange it in a dish, add to the gravy salt to taste and the juice of ½ a lemon and pour it over the chicken.—From "The National Cook Book," by Marion Harland and Christine Terhune Herrick.
