Recipe for old world egg stuffed chicken

desdemona | Jan 9, 201203:59 PM     6

My grandmother used to make this glorious chicken dish and I was wondering if there was a recipe out there. I can probably make it from memory, but would love to see if there was a recipe out there. She would take a whole chicken (with neck intact) and separate as much of the skin from the meat as possible without tearing it. She would then fill the cavity (between the skin and meat, not the actual inside), with a beaten egg mixture. Then you tie the neck to seal the skin and slowly lower it into boiling water. It simmers until the chicken meat has cooked. When you slice the chicken, there is a layer of egg over the meat, it looks gorgeous. Our background is Tatar/Russian, but there is Chinese influence as well. I hope someone out there has heard of it!
