I  made it for Valentines Day 2010, and he proposed less than a month later. I was getting antsy, and thought this superstitious bit couldn’t hurt.

Problem was, I RUINED it! I undercooked it big time and it came out raw and pink inside. He was so polite and picked at the cooked parts, but it was totally awful. I was so mad at myself because I ruined the entire purpose of it (to give him the subconscious thought that you’d make a good wife).

But propose he did. Thanks, under-cooked chicken!

@kessyud:The first time I made it, I undercooked it too! I totally ruined it, so I made it again a few days later.

 

I don’t correlate a meal with him putting a ring on my finger, but it’s a lighthearted story we can tell in the future, as it is in no way the reason we’re getting engaged! 🙂

@vmec: LoL! I’m sure I’d have better luck with this method than cooking chicken!

I’ve made it twice. He calls it keep your man chicken. Whatevs!LOL It hasn’t worked for me, but it was good. Cooks better in a gas oven though. I cook in n the apartment I lived in before we moved, then in our house. In our house was SO much better with the gas. Took a shorter amount of time to cook too.

It TOTALLY worked for me!! We are in LDR and he came up the week of Christmas/NYE and i made it that week.  The NEXT time he came up was for St. Pat’s day and I got the ring then!!

He asked me to make that chicken thing i made over Christmas, it was good, so said “oh the engagement chicken receipe?”  he cracked up, but that definitly stays on the GO TO list, it was pretty easy to make and so freakin good!

Completely unrelated, but you should try the Sweet Potato Queens’ Death Chicken… it’s a really good, rich chicken rice casserole.  Supposedly the only legal way to do him in is to get him addicted to it.  That, and it’s good “funeral food” to bring to a wake because you just have cover and bake it for 2 hours.

I made engagement chicken only a few days ago! My leftovers are in the fridge right now!! lol. I actually mostly made it because I had a roaster chicken, and had just trimmed my herb garden, so was looking for something to slather parsley sage and thyme all over. I found the recipe online mostly by accident while googling recipes for chickens, then went out and procured some lemons. I figured it couldn’t hurt my luck, and I needed to cook dinner anyhow. He actually really really loved the meal, but I think he was more into the rosemary potatos I served with it.
