Once a year Glamour Magazine prints their recipe for Engagement Chicken. Legend has it that when a woman makes the Engagement Chicken recipe for her boyfriend he soon after pops the "big" question.
Me being the crazy girl that I am, set up a science experiment using 4 of my very best friends. I emailed all of them two weeks ago the recipe and game plan. The 4 of them would cook the Engagement Chicken recipe for their boyfriends and we would sit and wait to see what happens. (Sounds a lot crazier as I am typing this!)
The reason I chose these 4 friends in particular is because all of them have been with their boyfriend for more than a year and all of them co-habitate. Top two reasons on why it should be completely acceptable to make the Engagement Chicken.
With making the Engagement Chicken comes a lot of responsibility. You have to plan out when you are going to make it, plan your trip to the grocery store, buy all the right ingredients, plan the perfect night for just you and your man, put the effort into carefully reading the recipe to make sure you make it just so, and last but not least make the chicken.
As you can see the Engagement Chicken recipe is not for couples who just started dating or are still in that "not sure" about each other stage. You have to have dedication to make this recipe.
Once I emailed my 4 friends all of them emailed me back immediately that they were in. One said "I am making it this weekend" another said "I am not sure when I will make it. I don't have time this weekend!".
None of the 4 girls have made it as of today but will doing so soon!! I will make sure to keep everyone posted on their progress and if any of them get engaged prior to making the chicken then we know it was just because they were thinking about making it! (insert laugh here)
If anyone reading has made the chicken and it worked, I want to know. I am a bit skeptical how an easy chicken recipe can make your man propose......
And posted below is the recipe for Glamour's Engagement Chicken recipe, just in case anyone is itching to try it out!!
