Hawaiian Haystacks

Hawaiian Haystacks ( no cream of chicken soup here)

I came up with this version due to the fact that I am not big on using cream of chicken soup as a gravy………. Hope you like it as much as we did.


3 cups of chicken cooked and chopped and seasoned with salt and pepper
1 small onion diced
6 TBS butter
1/3 C Flour (heaping)
4 Cups of Chicken Stock
1 Cup of Half and Half (I used fat free)
Cook rice with rice cooker, amount for number of people to feed.
Meanwhile : In a large saucepan sauté onion in butter over medium heat. Once the onions become translucent ,add the flour.
Stir in chicken stock and wisk until well blended. Add the chicken and half and half. Heat until warm throughout (do not boil)
Use toppings to suit your tastes…… Some Choices to consider
• cooked rice, sliced mushrooms
• pineapple tidbits and mandarin oranges, maraschino cherries
• chopped green onion ,olives, green pepper
• grated cheddar cheese , coconut
• slivered almonds,chow mein noodles
• celery, peas and carrots ,tomatoes

Layer on plate: Rice, Chicken gravy and any topping that suits your taste…..
Chow mein noodles, Soup mixture, Pineapple, Cheese, Celery, Green onions, Coconut, Almonds, and Soy sauce etc. !!

Perfect....I love this recipe. Another name for Hawaiian Haystacks is Chicken Sundaes and, with that in mind, you simply build it as you would a Sundae with the cherries on top and it just completes good!!
