    It looks like I am going to have a pretty good haul of chicken this weekend. Last year I just fried up what I found with some hot sauce and treated it like buffalo style chicken strips. Looking for some good tips on cooking with it. Also if anyone has some good tips on long term storage for them I would appreciate it.

    I am no chef but make sure you don't undercook them. Chicken Francais I would like to try?

    Jcumo,try sauteing with shallot and fresh peas,then add dry white wine,mussels and fresh parsley.cook covered 6 to 8 minutes.serve over rice or pasta w/ parm cheese.made for me once and loved it.all seasonings kept secret from me or had enough wine not to pay attention.guessing salt,pepper and squeeze of lemon.grill toasted french bread to sop up goodness was perfect.

    Ran into a cluster of Chickens yesterday whilst canoeing down the Black River. Not much else around albeit I wasn't looking very hard.

    Rub with olive oil, some light spice and cook on the grill like a fish.
    You can also fry them treat like fish and chips, sea salt and malt vinegar.
    They make a also great soup.
    Put them in your rice cooker.
    Theres a million ways to cook them .. like any shroom.

    After they are cooked you can freeze them, they are good dehydrated.
    Thats about it for long term storage.
    Good luck!
