Wash a hen and remove bowels, head and claws. Put it in a point with strips of salted lard or bacon and cover with water. Add spices. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and gently boil for one hour or until the hen is tender and half of the liquid has evaporated.
In the meantime grind chicken livers with egg yolks. Moisten them with broth from the chicken pot. Bring to a boil. Thicken with breadcrumbs.
Remove chicken from the pot when done and carve. Serve with sauce or add the sauce to be remaining broth and blend. Add carved chicken. Serve the chicken with broth in soup bowls.
