The dome-shaped caps range in color from light beige, dark brown, to gray and are smooth and moist with scalloped edges. When mature, the caps begin to turn upward at the margin revealing the tightly-packed white gills beneath the cap. The grey-brown stems can grow 5-10 centimeters in length and are thick, fibrous, and firm. When cooked, Fried Chicken mushrooms have a sweet aroma, a chewy, meat-like texture, and a rich, nutty, and mild flavor.
