RECIPES & TIPS
More like a cultivated mushroom in terms of flavor and applications, the fried chicken mushroom is most commonly used in Asian dishes and stir-fries. They are a great substitute for cultivated mushrooms such as Shiitake or Oyster.
Before cooking, clean them gently with a damp paper towel to remove dirt. Do not soak them.
