The chicken mushroom is also known as the sulphur mushroom because of its color - but why is it known as the chicken mushroom? This mushroom has the texture of moist chicken when its young and tender, and it gets to be like an old stringy bird as it gets older.
When young this mushroom is so choice I should probably be keeping it a secret. While it is orange and yellow in color and it somewhat resembles a lobster mushroom it is not.
It is easy to spot, easy to identify and easy to prepare and there is hardly any of that earthy funkiness that you associate with mushrooms, its hard to describe the soft and moist and delicate flavor. Its time to find these now so keep an eye out. I saute the pieces in a little olive oil and butter and then salt and pepper to finish, they would be so good with pasta or anything you want to kick up with a truly secret ingredient.
