Hawaiian Haystacks

Need a quick, easy (and cheap) dinner idea?
Try Hawaiian Haystacks, the kids love it!
I was curious what other people use for toppings and
found a crock pot method for busy/working mom's who are really short on time.

Hawaiian Haystacks

Stove top method: This is the way I've always done it
 2 cans of cream of chicken soup- or cream of mushroom
 1 can of milk (you can use a little more if you like)

 Heat soup and milk on the stove until heated through. You want this to be the consistency of gravy. You can add more milk if the mixture is too thick.

Crock pot method:
 2 cans cream of chicken soup
 2 frozen chicken breasts

Put chicken breasts in the crock pot and then cover with soup. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Remove chicken from the crock pot and shred or dice the chicken and return to the crock pot. Add enough milk to make the consistency of gravy.

Serve the sauce over COOKED RICE. Plan on one cup per person.

Then top with any of the following toppings:
*2 cups of cooked chicken breasts, diced or shredded (or you could use pork)
 shredded cheddar cheese
 pineapple tidbits
 sliced olives
 diced green onion
 chopped celery
 shredded coconut
 slice almonds
 diced fresh mushroom
 Chow mien noodles
 diced tomatoes
 mandarin oranges

I like this, because a lot of the toppings can come out of a can.... which saves me time.
Plus, my kids eat it.  And it's not bad for left over lunch the next day either.
