Baked Chickens

Dress the chickens and cut them in two, soak for half an hour in cold water,
wipe perfectly dry and put in a dripping-pan, bone side down, without any water;
have a hot oven, and, if the chickens are young, half an hour's cooking will be sufficient.
Take out, and season with butter, salt, and pepper;
pack one above another as closely as possible, and place in pan over boiling water,
covering them closely--this keeps them moist until served--
boil the giblets in a little water, and, after the chickens are taken from the dripping-pan,
put into it the water in which giblets were boiled, thicken it, and add the chopped giblets.
This manner of baking chickens is fully equal to broiling them.
