Ginny,  Was there supposed to be a link to a photo?   No way to guess
from just your description.   Does it look like this photo?

Laetioporus, when it is old, can be very hard and woody.   Typically
grows on wood.  When young, can grow fast and often with alternating
white/yellow bands.   When young, edible - fried with a little butter.
Just be sure it is chicken of the woods before consuming.   T. McCloud
