Some recipes allow you to substitute or omit an ingredient but not so here esp. so with the Sour Cream, it's a very important step in achieving the characteristic flavor. Credit for this scrumptious dish goes to Savella Stechishin of Traditional Ukrainian Cookery

How to Make Ukrainian Stewed Chicken


  • 1Cut chicken into serving pieces
    and coat with the seasoned flour
  • 2Lightly brown in the butter and place into a roasting pan
  • 3Add the boiling water, cover and cook in a 300 degree oven for 1 hour
  • 4Add the veggies and seasoning and continue cooking 1 to 11/2 or till tender
  • 5Blend the flour with the sour cream* and add to the chicken the last 1/2 hour of cooking
  • 6* I find blending a tablespoon of the hot broth to the blended sour cream and flour helps eliminate curdling and repeat the addition of hot broth until it pours nicely.
  • 7Savella suggests Garnishing with Dill,
  • 8Olga likes to serve with buttered noodles and mash potatoes sprinkled with chives
