Take a good fat hen, cut up, and fry till quite brown; fry onion enough to season; put all into a pot and fill with boiling water. Cook until the chicken comes all to pieces, then take out some of the chicken. Just before serving, sprinkle in the file powder, a little at a time, and stir until the soup is as you like. Add 50 oysters, boiled until sufficiently done. Serve with plain boiled rice.
