Anyone have a recipe for engagement chicken?

mcel215 Feb 28, 2008 02:28 AM


I just read an article about this amazing chicken dish, called "engagement chicken".
It was a segment on Good Morning America, and have googled and searched, but nothing except blips on the article. No recipe came up.

Anyhow, I would love a new chicken recipe, since I eat a lot of chicken these days.

    Are you sure you don't mean Anniversary Chicken? Recipe link below, sounds like a sodium bomb. Maybe someone will have the one you are seeking....there are tons and tons and tons of chicken recipes on this board if you do a search...subject comes up pretty frequently which is great, someone always jumps in with a new idea:

      This rings a bell with me and I think I know what book I'm thinking of, but it's at home and I'm at work (if I'm correct). I'll check back later. It was basically a simple roasted chicken, though.

          Thank you pamd, I wondered what the buzz was about!

          But, being a Hazan recipe, it ought to be delish. The only time I have whole chicken now though (ssshhh), is when I pick up rotissarie at Costco ; ) .

          No, but I have one for Catch a Man apple pie.

          It is a slight variation on the deep dish apple pie in one of the Silver Palate books. One of my hardcore feminist friends gave me the recipes, so I always call it by its full name.

            I love that Hazan recipe, it's easy and foolproof. Since "Essentials" by Hazan was a COTM, here are some reports on that recipe:

              not chicken for engagement or anniversaries, but a great chicken dish you might not know is chicken marbella - http://www.elise.com/recipes/archives...

                Thanks andytee,

                I just made chicken marbella on Sunday for guests!

                That is such a great dish, I haven't found one person snub their nose at the prunes, oh sorry dried plums ; ).

                  Thanks, is it really a Hazen recipe?
