    I made it awhile back. He did like it, but he wasn’t blown away with it. I’m still waiting for a ring.

    I’ve made it twice.

    1st- motives for a ring, electric stove, not all the way done, ok, he cooked it longer,lol

    2nd- no motive, thank you dinner, gas stove, well done and delicious according to SO

    I say if you have a gas stove, it’ll cook better. I didn’t really try with this chicken, but the 1st time I did.LOL

    I made it on Saturday and had a fantastic reaction. He even told his friends how good it was. And it’s not like I don’t cook! I cook everyday! I posted my reaction and pictures here. (opens in new window)

    As for cooking times, I knew there was no way a 4 pound bird was going to be done in 15 minutes like the directions say. It didn’t even reach 180 degrees until it had been in the oven for about 80 minutes. I followed the directions from the packaging. 20 minutes for each pound.

    I am going to make this soon–I think it just sounds yummy!

    And if it happens to work some sort of magic on the Mr., all the better!

    I would never do this. I would want my fiance to choose to do it on his own (which he did), not cook him something and cross my fingers that it would work… I’m sorry but I find this to be desperate :0(

    Of course it’s not desperate if you’re really just hungry!

    @hibiscusgirl: Basically here’s the gist:

    Oven 350 Degrees.

    risne your thawed chicken and dry it. Rub sea salt and pepper inside and out. Put a splash of lemon juice in it. Get two washed and dried lemons, poke holes in it with a fork and roll it to get the juices flowing, stick it in the cavity of your bird.

    Put it in the oven: I cook it breast side up for 30 mins-1 hr flip it. The recipie says it only takes an hour, but I’ve had it take about 30 mins per lb. I’ve found the best results are when I just cook it and check the temperature w/a meat thermometer. you want the inside to be a solid 165 degrees, dark meat a little higher.

    I didn’t hear about it until AFTER he proposed so for us it was just a really yummy dinner. I guess you could say it was used to celebrate the engagement.

    For me, I thought it was a fun way to make something a little different than usual. I cook for us about 5x/week, so I don’t think it made me seem anymore “wifey.” I just had never tried making a roasted chicken, so I figured it couldn’t hurt anything. To be honest, I would guess that most people that make it with the hopes that it will “make him propose,” already have a pretty good idea that the ring is fairly near. I will say this, though. He thanked me multiple times for that dinner… I think the presentation makes it look more difficult than it is!

    @Marie10: Most of us Waiting Bees ARE desperate. We are desperately trying NOT to choke/throttle our BF’s/SO’s and asking them/screaming at them “WHY IN THE HELL HAVEN’T YOU ASKED ME TO MARRY YOU YET!?!?!?!?!!?” lol! So this is our passive aggressive (okay,mostly passive) way of venting that ‘desperate’ frustration.

    I made it for the first dinner I cooked for my future-in-laws.

    They know I’m not huge into cooking so I think they were pleasantly surprised. Besides the fact the Future Mother-In-Law showed up with frozen pasta dishes “just in case”. Hmph…thanks.

    @Marie10: I doubt the chicken will convince him all at once that we should wed, it’s just for fun and to cross our fingers. A man will ask when he decides to, but there’s no harm in thinking we are helping out.. plus we get a delicious meal!
