Fertility Chicken…

3 Mar

OK all you single ladies out there listen up OK…??  This recipe has MOJO!  DO NOT and I REPEAT do not make it unless you are READY to settle down or have babies!
A while back I heard about this recipe called Engagement Chicken.   Story goes if you make this particular recipe for your guy he will( or is supposed too) propose to you within, I think they said six months. 
I was dying to try it because it sounded yummy.  So, I asked several of my friends had boyfriends and I was trying to goad them into trying out the recipe.  Nobody wanted to try it.  Everybody chicken s***….   I was even chicken s***
So, I broke down and tried it.  BUT, I thought I would “tweak” it up a little bit!  Here is the recipe in it’s raw form: I got this from Glamour

  • 1 whole chicken (approx. 3 lb.)
  • 2 medium lemons
  • Fresh lemon juice (1/2 cup)
  • Kosher or sea salt
  • Ground black pepper

Place rack in upper third of oven and preheat to 400 degrees. Wash chicken inside and out with cold water, remove the giblets, then let the chicken drain, cavity down, in a colander until it reaches room temp (about 15 minutes). Pat dry with paper towels. Pour lemon juice all over the chicken (inside and outside). Season with salt and pepper. Prick the whole lemons three times with a fork and place deep inside the cavity. (Tip: If lemons are hard, roll on counter-top with your palm to get juices flowing.) Place the bird breast-side down on a rack in a roasting pan, lower heat to 350 degrees and bake uncovered for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and turn it breast-side up (use wooden spoons!); return it to oven for 35 minutes more. Test for doneness—a meat thermometer inserted in the thigh should read 180 degrees, or juices should run clear when chicken is pricked with a fork. Continue baking if necessary. Let chicken cool for a few minutes before carving. Serve with juices.

OK now this is what I did.  I basted with white wine, butter and garlic.   I stuffed the cavity with both the lemon and wild rice. I didn’t serve it potatoes I served it with colard greens and corn. 
I figured I was safe right? HA!  I mixed up the recipe right?  Everything should be fine right? Nope not a chance!  Guess what happened?  The same night I made the chicken.  I conceived my twins!  Absolutely the God honest truth!  Girl Scouts honor! 

Ok so, that is my story.  Even if you are not trying to conceive or get married.  It’s a damn good recipe and I recommend trying it!  And here is the best part…  It’s super easy to make!  Honestly it looks hard but its not, even for a novice cooker.
