Looks very like Chicken of the woods (Laetiporus sulphurous) to me, if it is, then it is edible. I've tried it, it has a texture not unlike the white flesh of chicken meat, though it does need to be cooked with herbs and garlic for best flavour.

Thank you Mike. I know "Chicken in the wood" and this is not the same. It is quite spongy in texture and apears more like a blob rather than the layers. Still at a loss as to its Id.
