This is probably one of my mother’s most famous dishes. She has heard from so many people who have made this chicken when they proposed that its been dubbed “engagement chicken.” It makes a regular appearance on our family table. Few recipes are this simple, and except for turning the chicken once, kids can do almost everything else. If you are using a different size chicken, figure on a total cooking time of approximately 25 minutes per pound.
