Hawaiian Haystacks...

If you want a nice refreshing summer meal...this is it. Hawaiian Haystacks ... a favorite in our family.
It's kind of a build your own thing so everyone can add only what they like.
This meal also works out great for a large crowd.

You layer everything on top of fresh steamed rice and then pour the sauce over all...topping with chow mein noodles.
Here is how you make the sauce;

2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 cup chicken broth
1 (8 oz) pkg. chives and onion cream cheese
2 cups cooked chopped chicken (optional..my family likes it just as well without it)
Combine all ingredients and simmer for 8-10 minutes

Toppings;
grated cheese
diced tomatoes
chopped celery
chopped green pepper
slivered almonds
sliced green onions
pinapple tidbits
mandarin oranges
shredded coconut

And there you go girls...
Hawaiian Haystacks.
enjoy:)

This recipe reminds me so much of a dish my mom used to make called Chop Stick Tuna. It was really good and your Haystacks look good too. I think I'll have to try it out.

Hawaiian Haystacks are one of Kenna's most favorite foods. Thanks for the sauce recipe. . . It's a new version I haven't seen before.

Looks so cool and refreshing and light! what a wonderful summer meal that is easy to make! thank you! I love mixing chicken w/fruit. I have a chicken salad in the fridge now. I always grill extra chicken breasts when grilling(boneless,skinless) and then add mayo, grapes, apple, celery, pecans, any kind of yummy fresh crunchy fruit/veggie. Great to snack on...
