Dinner Idea: Hawaiian Haystacks

I’ve got a dinner idea for you…

{Pin This}

I threw these together last week for dinner and 8 out of 9 of us LOVED them (picky little 8 year old disagreed)!  I usually like to jazz up my sauce with a little sour cream, but was all out so I just pulled out a can of cream of chicken soup and added some milk until it was the consistency that I liked.

Hawaiian Haystacks

  • Cooked Rice – enough for your family
  • Sauce (Cream of chicken soup and milk… you can add broth, sour cream…)
  • Chicken – today I just baked some Zaycon Foods Breaded Chicken Tenders and then diced them up (we’ve found these are most tasty when they are baked for 25 minutes at 425 degrees).  I also like to use left over chicken!
The cool thing about Hawaiian Haystacks is that you can just pull stuff out of your pantry and fridge as toppings!  My family is a little picky on toppings, so I don’t have a ton showing here, but if I was with a bunch of adults, these are some of my must have toppings!

Topping Ideas:

  • Cheese (I’m stocked up thanks to Fred Meyer a few weeks ago!)
  • Pineapple (I have cans in my pantry from last year.  Fresh would be delicious too!)
  • Mandarin Oranges (in my stockpile)
  • Fresh Diced Tomatoes
  • Coconut (I still have some from Christmas baking)
  • Almond Slices (we have nut allergies in our house, otherwise these would be on here!)
  • Diced Green Peppers
  • Chow Mein Noodles (I didn’t have any on hand, but the crispy breaded chicken made up for it)
  • Avocado (hubs forgot to grab this from the store when he snagged the tomatoes!)
  • Green Onions
  • Olives
  • Dried Cranberries or Raisins

What are some of your favorite topping ideas?
