You need to thoroughly wash and dry the Chicken of the woods to prepare the dish. To do this, separate the shelves from the rest of the vegetables. Use a soft brush to remove large pieces of dirt and then wipe them dry with a paper towel. Once cleaned, the mushrooms can be marinated in the same way you would a chicken breast. This will remove some of the dirt and creepy crawlies, but it will also remove the flavor of the mushrooms.
Once you have washed, slice the sliced Chicken of the woods into 2 oz pieces.
