A question for all my single lady fans: How do you get a man to propose? Do you make sure you are nice to his family especially is a mom? Do you wash his clothes and cater to him all day long? Do you answer ‘yes sir’ to his every demand? What do you do? Well, all know that the way to man’s heart is through his stomach but most recently, there are rumors going around that a roasted chicken could land you an engagement ring! Yes, you read right.
According to a recent report, an engagement chicken meal is a reason Prince Harry put a ring on Meghan Mackle’s finger. Eyes wide open wondering. O.k. so I have been married 7+ years but I couldn’t help but wonder if I could have won my husband over with this chicken. So I decided to try out this recipe for you my single lady fans because I am hoping you tie the knot sooner than later and if engagement chicken will speed things up, why not?
So rumors have it, that one boss like that gave her worker this recipe and 3 months later, the worker was engaged. The same recipe was given to three other workers in the same company and they too got engaged. Meaning, there’s something about this chicken recipe. So what’s in it?
How to cook engagement chicken
You would not believe me when I tell you that all you need is lemons, salt, and black pepper. That’s how ridiculously easy this recipe is. All you have to do is rub salt and pepper on the chicken, squeeze some lemon juice on it and stuff some lemon in the chicken cavity. I really didn’t want to believe that this was all about the recipe yet I tried it. To me, it tasted just citrusy and though the chicken was quite juicy and tender, I needed to add a Zeelicious touch to it.
Engagement chicken recipe
To add more taste to this engagement chicken, I added butter to the lemon juice and also robbed the chicken with butter as it cooked. . A bright dish with a finishing splash of lemon juice responds well to a wine with a nice, bright citrus flavor like the Mainzer Dommherr which I used for this recipe. This made the citrus flavor pop after cooking it for hours and making sure that the alcohol is all cooked out. Because this was my second trial, I thought the chicken could use less lemon and some minced garlic. That’s what I recommend but all-in-all, this engagement chicken tasted really good especially as I combined it with Plantain gnocchi (which I will be sharing next) and a vegan coconut gravy. Ok. let’s cook, shall we?
