@babyboo: Oooh okay thank you. I never heard of this, that’s really cute though. I made my FI my man-catcher fried chicken on our first date.

LOL you guys… look at the “Related Posts” the Bee pops up for this post — all five are literally about E-Chicken! Hahahah I LOVE it!

Diver keep us posted! You’ve inspired me, I think it’s time I whipped out one more device from our arsenal of waiting luck charms here — I’m gonna go for the double whammy: listkeeper AND e-chicken!! Hahah!!

I wish… I’ve made more elaborate things for my guy. Not with engagement in mind but this will probably be more on the plainer side of things I cook. Good luck though to OP

Wow.  I’ve heard of pregnant women whipping up some eggplant or spicy food to send their bodies into labor, but I’ve never heard of cooking a chicken to try to coerce a guy to pop the question.

Have you just let him know you think the time is right and asked his feelings? Just like eating spicy food isn’t going to force your body into labor, chicken probably isn’t going to force him to ask you to marry him. ๐Ÿ™‚

I know it seems to upset waiting bees to hear this but I PROMISE if he’s the right guy he will ask you at the right time.  Perhaps fixating on it so much is making him feel anxious or forced.  I used to try to drop hints all the time and when I finally gave up and decided, “I know he wants to marry me, we’ve been together for 5 years. He’s not going anywhere. He’ll ask me when the time’s right.” And then I got a completely unexpected Valentine’s proposal. Sometimes you have to not dwell on things so much and just let them happen.  I SWEAR I’m not just coming here trying to be a snobby engaged bee attacking your feelings.  I’m genuinely trying to help.

I’m sure he’ll love the nice meal though.  Good luck to all of you e-chicken experimenters!

@quickiebride: The guys don’t KNOW we call it “engagement chicken”, LOL.

It’s just a funny little superstition.  I haven’t made mine yet.  But, like

@bRooklynRocks: it too, will be among the plainer things I would make.  But I think there is just something so “homey” about roasting a whole chicken.  And the lemon and garlic probably smell super yummy!

Lemon garlic chicken is amazing for sure ๐Ÿ™‚ Sounds like something my FH would like. You know the more I think about it this might work after all…it is true the way to their hearts is through their tummies!

It’s just a funny superstition…I didn’t expect that the e-chicken would convince my guy or anything. I did it just for fun. It’s a nice “home-y” meal.  And the story of how engagement chicken came to be is just hilarious. It was one of the writers at Glamour, I believe, who passed around her roast chicken recipe and coincidentally, all the gals who made it got proposed to shortly thereafter.  So it came to be known as “engagement chicken”.
