Not ! It may be simple, but it’s homecooked and my hubby’s fave. There’s just something about rubbing that chicken all over with the seasonings that makes him think of other rubbing 😉 K, now I’m getting weird. Just throw in your own unique variation ! I stuff mine with a secret stuffing recipe. Good luck !

Here’s my take on it.  And yes, I DID make it last year and was engaged a few months later.

1)when you love somebody enough to make anything that requires that much attention to detail as E-chicken, you gotta be serious!

2)It’s an ok dish imho, not perfect, but when a guy sees you put EFFORT into your cooking, he knows you’re serious too.  Plus who doesn’t think of having their family over for Sunday dinners when they see a fabulous spread whipped up like that?  I think it evokes thoughts of family dinners.

These are my thoughts on the E-chicken phenomena.  Is it foolproof and will you get engaged?  Maybe or maybe not.  But the sheer fact you’re taking the time to make an amazing dinner for your sweetie combined with the presentation shows you’re seriously into him.  Let’s face it.  I wouldn’t make this kinda dinner for just any guy.

I know that last year at Thanksgiving I also made my famous (well now somewhat sorta famous soup) Sweet Potato bisque soup and pecan pie.  I happen to think those two things might’ve sweetened the deal a bit too since we were engaged the first weekend in December!

It’s an easy and delicious way to cook chicken. What’s to lose?

BTW, I think the whole Engagement Chicken legend sounds like BS, but it’s a good recipe, yo! I’ve been making it for years as “lemon chicken.” Surely even a top chef like yourself appreciates a good simple recipe when you see it?
