You’ve heard of ‘Marry Me’ chicken, but have you heard of engagement chicken?  It’s a thing and it actually started with a magazine article talking about how the roasted chicken recipe can elicit an engagement.

The backstory is that in 1982 a Glamour magazine editor gave her assistant the roasted chicken recipe.  The assistant made the recipe for her boyfriend and a month later they were engaged.  Hence the term ‘engagement chicken.’  I haven’t made the original recipe, but I have tried the Barefoot Contessa’s roasted chicken and it’s amazing!

Do you have a recipe that your special someone just loves?  My husband makes a chicken tinga that is out of this world.  If I wasn’t already married to him, I would definitely say yes after his chicken tinga.

Bon Appetit!
