Chicken-of-the-Woods is said to prefer deciduous trees, and this looks like it is growing on a conifer.
You could put it in as a revision, and see what the experts think - it's an interesting find, whatever it is.
I agree that it is not COTW. I have never found it on such a small branch. Not sure what it is though
CotW has much bulkier, robust fruit bodies than this. It looks like it's growing on an Elder which is also unsusual. I agree with flaxton too - it's usually found on larger more mature trees
