    Chicken of the Woods Nuggets

    This find of extremely fresh, just started, Chicken of the Woods from Hocking County, OH inspired me to cut some for "Chicken Nuggets".

    On the cutting board, below. They didn't require any cutting or trimming from when I cut them off the log.

    Here's my assembly line for dipping in egg white & cream, panko bread crumbs

    The brown below, before frying is from mixing my own Tandoori seasoning: Coriander, Cumin, Sweet Paprika, Ginger, Saffrom. Cardamon & Garlic.

    Truth be told -- I was less than thrilled with the taste of the "Chicken Nuggets" with the Tandoori seasoning and did a recovery by grabbing a bottle of Ketchsup -- HA!!

    The texture was superb, though and satisfying. Also, steamed, mashed turnips with fresh Parsley from the garden.

    Barbequed Chicken Tenders

    Right now tender Chicken of the Woods are a regular choice from a trip to the woods.

    That's pretty much all that is needed: tender Chicken of the Woods, Olive Oil, BBQ sauce and I like to use Penzy's Arizona Dreaming spice mix (ground Ancho, onion, garlic, paprika, lemon peel. chipolte pepper, red pepper, jalapeno, cocoa, & natural smoke flavor).

    I brush them with olive oil and cook them some over charcoal first before brushing them with BBQ sauce.

    Chicken of the Woods Breakfast

    I was into and out of the woods early am before breakfast, to avoid the heat . . . bringing out some fresh Chicken with me for a mid-late morning breakfast.


    2016-7-(Jul)19 003.jpg

    Tender pieces.

    My favorite - Panko bread crumbs in butter or olive oil.

    2016-7-(Jul)19 010.jpg

    Fried eggs, home fries w/onions, Chicken tenders and some BBQ sauce. Satisfying!!

    Chicken (of the Woods) Fingers
    Sometimes its more about the size and how you can cut it. Here magnificient, tender Chicken Fingers were the calling.


    DSC03442.JPG

    A number of people on this site have recommended Drakes Seasoning Mix. So, I try it every other year and always find is worthwhile to keep and use.

    This time the Chicken Fingers accompanied Ravioli Pasta & Greens, adding a nice crisp textural and flavor contrast.

    Maybe I haven’t found the best specimens, but I can’t get the chicken taste everyone seems to associate with these. It has a slightly acidic taste. And kind of tastes like it smells. If that makes any sense. I really do want to like it, but the taste just doesn’t do it for me. I can see the chicken texture, but thats about it.

    What kind of tree are you finding them on, Cherry. I can't attest to it because I've never found them on Cherry but some friends have and they said they were sour. Also, season them up exactly like you would fresh chicken.
