Cale Makar dishes on his favorite mayonnaise chicken recipe



It has become the go-to favorite food of Avalanche fans, or the one they are most curious about at least. During the last road trip for the Avs, Cale Makar got to spend a night with his folks in his hometown of Calgary. Word got out through the Avs’ social media feed that Makar requested his favorite dish for dinner: his mom’s mayonnaise chicken.

No word just yet on mayonnaise sales in the Denver metro area, but it’s safe to say there is a LOT more interest in the condiment, judging by the buzz from Avs fans over this.

I asked the man himself today about the mayo chicken, how it’s made and why he likes it so much:

“So, mayonnaise chicken: you bake the chicken, and put a small little layer of mayonnaise on top. You put a few bread crumbs in there, mix it in with that. Then, some parmesan cheese and when you bake it, it kind of crisps on top. Well, maybe not crisps the top, it just kind of makes a nice layer. It just gives it a good taste. I don’t know, I love it. And it’s not super unhealthy, so…,” Makar told Colorado Hockey Now.

Superstreak Bonus!

As with any baked chicken in the oven, the best temperature to cook is 350 degrees, for about 35 minutes.

Or, as is the case in Canada, it’s 177 degrees Celsius, for 35 minutes!

Dater comes through with the goods! Small correction, it wasn’t through their social media, it was Lauren Jbara interviewing his dad on the broadcast (which you understandably didn’t see ’cause you were in the pressbox).

Ah, thank you


And for those who want a recipe:

I’ll be making this for the oilers game, haha!


Lol our ovens are in Fahrenheit

[…] Makar is a lover of Mayonnaise Chicken. In a recent article in Colorado Hockey Now the young defenseman dished our his favourite […]

Also as a note, 35 minutes at 350 will NOT bake a WHOLE chicken but rather chicken breasts that are cut in half (butterflied)
