When you have cooked, and roasted the chicken, cut apart the wings, and the breast, and the thighs, slice a good quantity of lemons into thin slices, put them with rose water, salt, sugar, and cinnamon, put the chicken in a pot, putting over the lemons, mix together all the things in the pot, leave it to stand until it is stewed, and turn it onto a plate with the lemons, and the juices over.
