When thinking of Ukrainian food, this may not be the first thing that comes to mind. In fact, it may not come to mind at all. But for us, we remember mayonnaise chicken. I'm sure it came about just from the creativity of the Ukrainian housewives. They use a little of everything they have with delicious results. Whenever they could afford it, this is what Kristina usually fed us. Because my husband was craving it, I decided to fix some the other day...and a few more days after that as well.
Mayo (1-1/2 cups)
juice from 1/2 a lemon
some or all of the following (onion, green onion, garlic, salt, pepper)
Spices/fresh herbs (I used rosemary this time because I was craving the flavor, but you can use whatever you have...dill, oregano, basil...)
Mix all of the ingredients together. Spread over chicken pieces in pan.
Cover with tinfoil and bake at about 325-350 for about 45-1 hr.
Any additional cooking, I usually cook at 425.
Ukrainians usually use chicken with the skins and bones. I've done both skinless and with skins.
