Hawaiian Haystacks

This is a fun meal that's quick and different! Build your own "Hawaiian Haystack."

As a base everyone gets a plate of steamed rice with Cream of Chicken (and chicken is in the gravy) on top. Then they go down the line and add the toppings* of their choice.

*topping suggestions are at the bottom of this post

We use the crock pot to cook the chicken (seasoned with basic seasonings: garlic, onion, pepper, salt, parsley) earlier on in the day or the day before. Then, about an hour or two before serve time, stir in a few cans (or 8, depending on how many you're serving) of Cream of Chicken soup, if you need to thin it up with a little splash of milk, that's fine, just don't use the full amount of milk the can asks for.

The rice cooker is by far the best place to cook the rice, unless you're like me and don't own one and then you'll have to cook it the good ol' fashioned way.

Each person can top their haystack with any number of different toppings.
Here are some of our favorite toppings:

green peppers
thinly diced celery
pineapple tidbits
shredded coconut
Chinese chow mein noodles
shredded cheddar cheese
thinly sliced green onions
slivered almonds
canned peas
canned corn
