For the past few months I’ve been reading in Glamour magazine about engagement chicken. Supposedy ladies who have made this chicken have gotten engaged shortly after making this dinner for their boyfriend. So you guys know I just HAD to try it. (It’s been 7 years y’all, SEVEN YEARS and you know desperate times call for desperate measures. I will try anything to get the ball rolling faster.
Well I went out and bought the book which is titled “100 Recipes That Every Woman Should Know” and after a quick trip to my local Wal-Mart, got to cooking. I made it yesterday as his Father’s Day dinner and it was a hit! He loved it and said it was the best dinner I ever made! As to the engagment aspect of the dinner…still waiting but maybe it will be soon! OR- maybe when he eats the leftovers for dinner today the magical effects of the engagement chicken will set it even more. LOL!
Have any of you ladies read about Glamour’s Engagment Chicken or any old wives tales on how to get a man to propose?

@Hopeful1: I made it a long time ago. It’s really just a roast chicken…so its not much different than the dinners I normally cook!
I hope it works for you 🙂

I have heard of Glamour’s engagement chicken and I did at one point consider making it for my boyfriend. He found the recipe however and told me I should get on it because he was going to propose soon. I decided against it to see what happened. I don’t think there is any direct correlation between engagement chicken and getting engaged though. I think an engagement happens because it was meant to happen.

@Hopeful1: HEH. I was reading an issue of Glamour yesterday at the beach with BluesGuy (he likes to read, well, anything), and they had a section on recipes that would change your life. Engagement Chicken was one of them — I flipped past it, though, because I didn’t want him to think I was getting ideas!
I can’t say that I’d ever make this specific recipe for him. One of the first meals I cooked for him was a roast chicken with lemon, and I hadn’t even *heard* what was in Engagement Chicken at that point. That’s one of the main “Sunday dinner” pieces in my repetoire, and I don’t want him to get any ideas that I’m doing chicken and lemon just so that he’ll propose!

@Hopeful1: No great insight into the chicken (never made it, but I’ve made other roast chickens), but I just wanted to say it’s been 7 years for me too! Sigh. Somehow day to day it doesn’t seem that long but then you say the words out loud and you’re like SEVEN?!

@Bostongrl25: seriously do I give head? Yes. seriously did he propose because he got head? Of course not. It’s a joke. So is “engagement chicken.”

@Hopeful1: I made this chicken the week after Valentine’s Day (Feb. 17th-ish) and he bought my engagement ring May 17th. Still waiting for the ring/proposal, but I KNOW it’s coming soon! Haha
