The back story to "engagement chicken is...back in January 2004 Glamour published a recipe for "Engagement Chicken," so called because soon after staffers whipped it up, their boyfriends popped the question.

I had some fresh thyme that needed to be used up so I added it to the chicken's cavity and sprinkled some on top as well. I also cut up some red potatoes and scattered them in the pan on top of the onions and lemons. The house smelt heavenly! The chicken was ridiculous! It was moist, flavorful, perfect. I served the lemon/onion gravy in a bowl on the side. This is as good as it gets.

I might not need an engagement but a second honeymoon could be on the horizon.
