Grilled Enoki Mushrooms Wrapped with Smoked Chicken Breast

Today, my quest for Hors d’oeuvres recipes continues with grilled Enoki mushrooms wrapped with smoked chicken breast. Inspired by Japanese yakitori, these grilled Enoki mushrooms are light, juicy, and appetizing—thanks to store-bought smoked chicken breast deli slices and the nice presentation. Lightly charred on the surface but still moist in the core, popping these little bites into my mouth was indeed satisfying.

While I used chicken breast, any deli meats would work—turkey, sliced ham, bologna, or even bacon. Aside from the simple ingredients, these little hors d’oeuvres have the extra bonus of grilling in just minutes. Now this is what I call no-hassle food.

Make them at home or for your next party; I can assure you that this recipe will be a crowd-pleaser!

    Tiga – sorry sorry, I didn’t mean to scare you, do they really look like jellyfish? (I thought my food photography was good!) LOL!!

    Simcooks – sorry, another scared by my pictures. :P

    hi, first thank you for your comment, you are so nice !!! I don’t know this mushrooms and I’m sure that I will not find that here…too bad. The presentation is just a pure bonheur ;-) But what is your job ???


  6. Shilpa

    haha, you guys have vivid imaginations! :) rm, your food photography is awesome! In fact, I’m so envious, ‘cos it looks like you have an abundant supply of natural light! And how do you get the black background, if you don’t mind sharing?

  7. Jackson

    wow! I love enoki mushroom! I never try this before and im sure gonna try this whenever im having a cocktail buffet coz its so ex to prepare.

    Precious Pea – No, I am not in the food catering business, but I like to make little hors d’oeuvres because they are so pretty. :)

    Ho Jiak – the thing about enoki mushrooms is that they cook so fast, if they are boiled, they would become soggy looking. Even though they look dry in the pictures, they were perfectly cooked, crunchy and moist.

    Budding Cook – no, they don’t taste fishy at all. I don’t think mushrooms taste fishy. ;)

    Claude – I think you will be able to find these mushrooms in your place…try them, they are the best mushrooms. When I am not cooking, I work on internet-related projects.

    Sue – no, I am not on a diet. Yeah, I ate all of them so they were like a proper meal, almost!

    Shilpa – Thanks for your nice compliment about my food photography. I am really not all that; such an amateur. It’s my wall. It’s dark brown actually but they turn out so dark it looks like black. No trick and no photoshop. But to get color background for your pictures, you can buy poster boards of various colors. ;)

    Danielle – they don’t have the typical mushrooms, such light and crunchy. They come in a small bunch, you should try and see if you like them.

    Jackson – yes, a sure way to impress your guests.

    Elmin – Hi and welcome. Wow, Istanbul, very cool!

    Linnish – Thanks. It was my idea and little experiment. Turned out quite well.

    Were you preparing it for some house parties? Invite us over leh…

    I love those mushrooms! (cooked in anyway hehe…)

    Hi Rasa, glad to discover your blog, thks to Claude-Olivier, the swiss blogger who divinely cooked your satay chicken.
    I love enoki-dake mushrooms, they are also so funny to look at ;o)
    I wrap mine in smoked or non-smoked bacon. But real bacon not the one we see sometimes in supermarkets named this way, do you know what I mea ? ;o)Then I cut them in two, right in the middle of the bacon so they look like a “bouquet” of enoki growned in bacon ;o) Then I eat them with edamame…
    I will surely try to use chicken slices instead.
    Unfortunately for me, if I can easily find fresh shiitake, its a little bit harder with these ones.
    I guess you can find them much more often than we do ?
    Nice pictures and lovely blog.

    KM – yes, they are very good in steamboat too, so crunchy.

    Shilpa – those color poster cardboards are very cheap. I got 5 colors for only like $3.00 and you can use them forever.

    Arisa Go – yes, no flavoring at all. Easy and tasty.

    Thalie – welcome and thanks for your nice words. :) Yes, I guess being in California, we are so lucky. I can get a lot of scarce ingredients here and they allow me to cook authentic home recipes.

    I will have to try your bacon suggestion as one of my favorite yakitori dish is bacon wrapped with cherry tomato. :)
