Laetiporus is a genus of edible mushrooms found throughout much of the world. Some species, especially Laetiporus sulphureus, are commonly known as sulphur shelfchicken of the woods, the chicken mushroom, or the chicken fungus because it is often described as tasting like and having a texture similar to that of chicken meat. The name “chicken of the woods” is not to be confused with another edible polypore, Maitake (Grifola frondosa) known as “hen of the woods/rams head” or with Lyophyllum decastes, known as the “fried chicken mushroom”. The name Laetiporus means “with bright pores”. Wiki

CHICKEN FRIED CHICKEN OF THE WOODS

Chicken Fried Chicken of the Woods

Christopher Robinson
The best chicken of the woods dish, possibly ever created
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 20 mins
Servings 4 people

Equipment

  • Heavy saute of frying pan, like cast iron

Ingredients
  

  • 4 2 oz pieces of young chicken of the woods the size of a small fist. Just imagine it's chicken
  • All purpose flour as needed for breading, roughly 1 cup
  • kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 generous pinch sweet paprika
  • 1 tiny pinch cayenne pepper
  • 3 eggs for breading
  • 6 Tbsp Clarified butter or ghee for cooking or substitute a combination of cooking oil and unsalted butter
  • A few sprigs of fresh thyme optional
  • Small clove of garlic crushed lightly with the back of a knife optional
  • Lemon wedges for serving

Instructions
 

  • Trim the rough section where the stem begins to adhere to the tree from your chicken mushroom pieces. The mushrooms should be thoroughly cleaned and dried to aid with seasoning adhesion.
  • Add a generous pinch of salt, pepper, paprika, and cayenne to the flour to taste (go easy on the cayenne). Toss the mushrooms three times: once in flour, once in egg, and once more in flour.
  • Add a generous pinch of salt, pepper, paprika, and cayenne to the flour to taste (go easy on the cayenne). Toss the mushrooms three times: once in flour, once in egg, and once more in flour.
  • Cook the chicken of the woods for about 4-5 minutes, or until they are golden brown on both sides, adding more oil if the pan gets dry. Then, rapidly blot the mushrooms on paper towels to remove excess oil, season with a little salt, and serve right away.

Notes

*If your chickens have been in the fridge for a day or two they might be a bit dry, and could have trouble allowing the coating to adhere if they are, or if they're old, consider steaming them and patting dry to ensure the coating adheres.
Like your typical chicken fried steak, these would be fine with some red-eye gravy, or just a few lemon slices and a green salad for a lighter touch.

Do you soak chicken of the woods?

In order to remove any unpleasantness (or creepy crawlies) from a mushroom that is exceptionally filthy, I will first submerge it in a sink or large bowl of water. But be careful not to soak the mushroom for too long—it can easily become waterlogged.

How do you know when chicken of the woods is cooked?

Cook the chicken of the woods for about 4-5 minutes, or until they are golden brown on both sides, adding more oil if the pan gets dry. Then, rapidly blot the mushrooms on paper towels to remove excess oil, season with a little salt, and serve right away.

You should clean your mushrooms after you have located and harvested them. However, this particular mushroom cannot be thrown into a basin of salt water to remove the bugs and dirt. Chicken mushrooms will absorb up water, deteriorate in flavor, and become soggy.
Antioxidants can be found in abundance in chicken of the woods. According to a study, the chicken-of-the-woods mushroom’s hot alkali extract effectively scavenges free radicals[1]. The -glucan present in chicken of the wood mushrooms is responsible for the antioxidant properties.

Ingredients
  

  • 8 oz Chicken of the Woods
  • Dip Options* Pick Below
  • 1 bottle Just Egg
  • 4 tbs chickpea flour plus 2 cups water whisked together
  • 2 tbs flax seed meal 1 cup water whisked
  • Seasoned Flour
  • 2 cups Flour*
  • 2 tsp Sea Salt

  • 1 tsp Mace
  • 1 tsp All Spice

  • 1 tsp Oregano

Instructions
 

  • After cleaning them, separate your mushrooms into wing-shaped pieces.
  • Prepare or pour your Dip in a big or medium bowl.
  • Combine all of the ingredients for your spiced flour in a separate, large bowl.
  • Depending on the desired breading, dunk your mushrooms in the dip, then the flour, and repeat 2-3 times. For each mushroom, repeat.
  • Air Fryer Instructions
  • You should freeze the breaded mushrooms for 20 to 30 minutes. This will aid the breading's stability.
  • If you want an oil-free approach, omit this step and simply brush or spritz a little oil over the partially frozen wings.
  • Place the wings in the air fryer with space between them; do not crowd them.
  • 20 minutes of air frying at 370 degrees, with 10 minutes of turning
  • frying instructions
  • Oil should be at least 3 to 4 inches thick in a medium pan, and it should be heated to 350 F or until a drop of water sizzles when added.
  • Drop your wings in, leaving some room between them.
  • 3–4 minutes or when golden brown, flip.
  • Place there to soak up extra oil, either on parchment paper or a clean towel.
  • Serve either sauce-coated or plain.

Notes

The Just Egg is the simplest and tastiest choice. For more omega 3s, I usually use flax seed meal diluted in water. -Chickpea flour and water also work well and are the most cost-effective choice. Use whichever option makes the most sense for you; they all produce comparable results for covering the wings.
Use the flour of your choosing. I had wonderful results using all-purpose flour. I also tried using whole wheat flour, but there was no flavor difference, only a tiny color variation. I've heard that chickpea flour can be used as a gluten-free substitute, but I haven't personally tested it yet.
Although I know that nutritional yeast flakes are not a typical addition in many kitchens, I adore the taste they add to this recipe.
You should buy it and give it a try because it gives this recipe more depth and umami.
But even without it, this meal tastes fantastic.

How do you get rid of bugs in chicken of the woods?

Mr. Neil rinsed the pieces in water and filled the bowl with roughly equal parts water and white vinegar to get rid of any remaining bugs after we brought the pieces inside. Don’t let bugs stop you from trying chicken of the woods if you ever come across it; the vinegar technique works GREAT and the flavor is well worth it.
