Chicken of the Woods & Grits Recipe

Talk about a southern summer staple... Whether its for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner, this dish will have you begging for more!

Full disclosure here - we decided to really 'shroom-it-up' by throwing in some store-bought baby bellas with our freshly foraged Chicken of the Woods because #whynot - so don't hold back! This recipe works well with a combo of shrooms.

What you'll need:

Chicken of the Woods mushroom -Can't find any, or new to foraging? Try your local farmers market or you can reach out to us and we may be able to supply you with a fresh bounty!


Grits - we love the Quaker quick 5 minute grits though we have some special ingredients that make them very flavorful, see below


Better than Bouillon - Chicken Flavor (1-2 tablespoons depending on your serving size)


Butter - 2 table spoons


Salt & Ground Pepper - pssst we love Peg's Salt


Fresh Cilantro


Green Onion


Sriracha (optional)

 

What to do:


Prep: (~5 min)


  • Clean any debris off the Chicken of the Woods mushroom with a dampened towel

  • Slice the mushroom into strips, discarding any parts that feel tough (typically the sections closer to the stipe of the mushroom will be more tough)

  • Cut up some cilantro and green onions to use as toppings on the dish


Cook: (~15 min)


  1. First things first - get those grits going! Determine your serving size/proportions and get your water boiling

  2. Add grits to briskly boiling water, stirring in better than bouillon, butter, and salt and pepper

  3. Reduce heat and continue to stir grits as they cook

  4. In a medium sauce pan add your pre-cut strips of Chicken of the Woods with some butter and sauté on a low heat for about 10 minutes

  5. Once the grits are done and the mushrooms are sautéd, assemble your dish with cilantro and green onion (+ sriracha) on top and enjoy!
