Chicken of the Woods, Chicken Mushrooms, COWs – What is it? These common names refer to the species in the Laetiporus genus, and in North America, it’s usually one of these species: L. sulphuereus, L. cincinattus, or L. conifericola. They’re typically bright orange, and commonly distributed throughout North America and Europe.
Well, like chicken! This mushroom has a distinctly meaty-shreddy texture, and a savory flavor that toes the line between mushroom and poultry. Some species are more strongly flavored than others, and their flavor can be effected by region, substrate, humidity, and warmth. If button mushrooms aren’t your favorite flavor or texture – give COWs a shot! They’re a real crowd pleaser.
