Why Is It Called Engagement Chicken?

This Engagement Chicken is just as it sounds. This recipe is thought to be the go-to meal recipe to get your man or women to pop the question. This recipe is known to be the one meal that made a man propose because it was so amazing.

Can I Make This in the Instant Pot Instead?

You can absolutely make this engagement chicken in an Instant Pot. Cooking this recipe in an Instant Pot can help speed up the process a little bit. And, if you’re short on time, it will work out perfectly. Although, using a slow cooker will allow the flavors to imbed in the chicken and make it so tender and juicy. You will want to use the trivet to keep the chicken out of the water and then possibly place it under the broiler in order to crisp up the chicken skin.

How to Make Slow Cooker Chicken

Rinse the chicken, discarding any extra pieces from the inside of the chicken. Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel.

Create an even layer of the sliced onions on the bottom of the slow cooker and lay the chicken over the onions.

Place a garlic half on each side of the chicken. Stuff two lemon halves inside of the chicken cavity. The remaining two lemon halves should be placed on each side of the chicken.

Pour the olive oil over the chicken and rub to completely coat. Combine all of the seasonings and sprinkle over the olive oil.
