So, i made Engagement chicken AND i followed it to a T. Even though i wanted to add other things to it, i made it to a T. But im just wondering how many people have made it and if it has worked? Ive read a dozen different places that it works, but it would be nice to hear from real people. O, sorry, by the way im new.....hehe....thanks!

I make roast chicken a lot, and we''re not engaged yet! On the other hand, I have no doubt that we will be soon.

If that recipe doesn''t work for you, try the Thomas Keller version. Super easy (you basically don''t do anything to the chicken except cover it in salt & pepper) and it is seriously the best roast chicken I''ve ever had. We make it at least a couple times a month. Recipe here.

I think it''s worked for me! (Well, kinda
. Looking back, I found out he had the diamond already when I made it. But who knows... it may have sped things up!)

It worked for LilyOfTheValley! Check out her thread here.

I''ve made it, but never for a guy. I wanted to try it out and see how fabulous it was. I love how simple it is!

i just made it (again!) on sunday. If you have never roasted chicken before (like me, the very first time), well, it came come out a bit disappointing. But after some practice, it cooks and taste great! I added in onions last night, which helped the flavor a lot.

I made it 12/5/09 and got engaged 2/7/09. I made modifications and it was really good! I''m a believer!

the "stupid chicken" part cracked me up! hilarious.

i don''t know about engagement chicken -- never made it. i''m a chef and make pretty tasty dinners on a regular basis, so my boyfriend probably wouldn''t notice. but i might give it a try, although, he already has the ring!

i am not very impatient about the proposal, as i want to give him time to plan it execute it in a way that is very "him." maybe i''ll make engagement chicken to celebrate the engagement!

here is ~****dust****~ for you!!!

Thanks! I was making it to celebrate our anniversary. I think I had similar thoughts about fitting the lemon inside the chicken, dont worry! It was delicious and with the leftover chicken I made chicken salad which we both really liked.

I hope it works for you! If nothing else, hopefully you at least had a yummy dinner!
