Emily Blunt is convinced her rotisserie chicken sealed the deal for John Krasinski and led to his proposal.
The actress, who met John in 2008 and got engaged to him a year later, insists a perfect dish earned him enough to kneel down and ask her to marry him.
She told the River Cafe Table 4 Podcast , “I think I just did something that I knew you would love. A roast chicken. Who doesn’t love rotisserie chicken? The roast chicken I love is the roast chicken from Ina Garten (cookbook author). It’s called their ‘Engagement Chicken’, because I think when people make it for people, they commit or something.
“Lemon, garlic, onion to chicken, thyme, salt and pepper, all that. Sprinkle onions around the chicken, but pack them very tightly on the pan. And then he roasts them really high for about an hour and 20 minutes and they’re done and they’re perfect. When you take out the chickens, sauté in some wine and (put) a little butter in that onion and garlic mixture. My God, it’s divine. It’s really sticky and delicious. “
And now the couple have one of the strongest marriages in Hollywood, with John confessing that he has been a huge fan of the Jungle Cruise actress for years.
“I was a huge fan of her even before I met her, so I’m still a huge fan of her in everything she does,” he says. “So we support him a lot, we get what work is and you have to travel and do some things, but it’s always about coming home and being together, it’s the most important thing.”
