Hawaiian Haystacks Recipe

We love Hawaiian Haystacks around here. We eat this meal at least once a month, usually 2-3 times. It is a great recipe to use when company is coming. It feeds a lot and most everyone can find something they like in it. We use organic brown rice from the bulk bins at Whole Foods, but you can use any rice you like. For company, I recommend doubling the recipe. It is somewhat flexible, you can add more broth/water or chicken depending on the consistency you like.

Hawaiian Haystacks

2 (10 3/4 oz) cans cream of chicken soup
1 cup chicken broth or water
2 cups diced chicken
4 cups cooked long-grain rice

Combine soup and chicken broth in a medium saucepan to make gravy. Stir to blend. Add chicken. Simmer about 8-10 minutes, until heated through.
Layer on plates-first stack rice, chow mein noodles and chicken gravy. Add toppings as desired.
Makes about 8 servings.

Topping choices
chow mein noodles*
diced or sliced tomatoes
chopped celery*
diced green pepper*
chopped green onion
pineapple chunks or tidbits*
shredded cheddar cheese*
slivered almonds
shredded coconut

*These are the toppings we always use. But, if we are out of something it really doesn't make that much of a difference to us.
